How to Avoid Home Security Disasters

August 6th, 2019

Movies often depict home security disasters like home invasions and often, we find this very entertaining and thrilling. We are on the edge of our seat as the bad guy makes his way into the home, and we yell at the screen trying to warn the homeowners that they are not alone. While we may like watching these kinds of movies, we certainly don't want to star in one of our own.

For this reason, it is a good idea to invest in a Houston home security system. It is one of the best ways to avoid making your debut and being like the unsuspecting homeowners in some of your favorite movies.

Your Security System

When you get a security system and alarm, you will be immediately notified when someone enters the home or is trying to gain access. When you are inside, you can arm the alarm, and as soon as someone starts messing with a door or window or any other monitored area of the home, you will get that alarm. You won't have to stop and strain to listen for unusual noises yourself.

Security Cameras

Wouldn't you love knowing what is going on inside and outside of your home and property at all times − even when you aren't there? Security cameras and remote access capabilities make this entirely possible. 

You can watch your real-time security footage from your smartphone and receive notifications if anything happens. This gives you the chance to check things out at home or notify the authorities if you see someone on the cameras.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

In addition to warning you of intruders, your home security system can also detect carbon monoxide. It is an invisible and colorless gas that can be very dangerous. If you breathe in too much of this gas, you can become very sick, or you can die. 

Carbon monoxide detectors should be placed in a central location in the home, and if anything is detected, an alarm will ring out to warn you.

Security System Upgrades

If you have a home that already has a home security system, you may want to consider having it upgraded. An upgrade can give you access to even more premium features you will love that will go a long way in offering you and your home even more protection. 

To do this, you can have the experts come to the home and assess what kind of security needs you may have. They can offer suggestions on what kind of upgrades you should get and can recommend if you should get a new system altogether. 

Being able to make these improvements to your home security system will help you avoid these common home security disasters and will ensure you can have even more peace of mind and sleep easier at night knowing that you have taken the necessary steps to protect your home and family.

If you are ready to upgrade your security system, contact the experts in Houston, TX to go over all your available options. 

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
