Is Your Home Secured For The Autumn

October 10th, 2019

As the temps drop, fall brings with it plenty of colorful leaves, comfortable weather, great food, and more. But, as most in the Houston area know, it also brings some security concerns that you’ll need to consider as well. If you’ve never thought about the risks and the steps you need to take to make sure your property is protected, keep reading to learn more about how to make sure your home’s security system is up to par for this coming fall.

School Starting

Kids returning to school means that your family’s schedule will be more complex. If your children are involved in sports, this is even more apparent. Whether it’s the family staying out for a sports event or making sure that your kids return home from school and are safe until you get home from work, the right steps are a must.

Investing in a security system is a good step here. Not only will a security system help protect you from potential security risks, but it can make it easier to keep an eye on your home and your kids when you’re not there.


Believe it or not, landscaping plays a huge role in whether or not a thief decides to target your home. Overgrown shrubbery is a perfect hiding place, and when shrubbery is directly in front of windows it lets a thief hide easily as they break in. Because of this, you’ll want to keep some landscaping tips in mind:

  • Avoid landscaping that blogs the view of your doors and windows from the road or neighbors


  • Trim shrubs and bushes if they’re in front of windows to keep your property safe.


  • Remove dead plants from around the house.


  • Use thorny plants like rose bushes to make sure that thieves won’t hide there.


Always consider your landscaping when taking steps to increase security at your home.

Lower Temperatures

Be sure to take steps to keep your family safe from issues like carbon monoxide poisoning. Leaking furnaces or problems with your heaters could fill the home with carbon monoxide. Today’s security systems actually include carbon monoxide detectors, and you can also install additional alarms to make sure your family is protected.

The bottom line here is that in every case, adding the right security system will be a key element in keeping your home and your family safe and protected this fall. A small investment in a good security system can protect you from break ins as well as other safety issues like fires, carbon monoxide, and any other risk that comes along with the drop in temperature as the fall rolls in.

"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!"
