Keep Your Home Safe While On Vacation With These Suggestions

July 26th, 2019

Houston citizens, as well as others around the world, spend months and sometimes years planning the ultimate vacation. Some folks plan the big event during the summer months and head out to tropical locations. Meanwhile, others schedule the trip for the wintertime and hit up a ski resort or another cold-weather destination. Regardless of when or where people decide to go, all of the travelers usually have at least one thing in common.

They worry about what will happen to their home or belongings while they are gone. However, Houston residents shouldn't have to fret about such things. Therefore, this post is focusing on some tips that are designed to help them ensure their property is safe and secure when they are out and about. Curious persons should stay here and read further to learn all about the security measures. 

Hold The Mail And Stop Newspaper Deliveries

There are tell-tale signs that burglars look for to discover whether anybody is home or not. One is the mailbox being overstuffed with letters, documents, and postcards. Another is newspapers piled up in the driveway or by the front door. If a Houston homeowner fails to notify the post office or newspaper company to stop delivering the items, for the time being, tragedy could strike in the blink of an eye. They may wind up coming home to a destroyed house with all of their valuables missing. So, don't overlook this step and keep burglars at bay. 

Double Check The Locks On All Doors And Windows

Most research indicates that burglars commonly find their way inside a structure via an unlocked door or window. While this task may seem minimal, it is actually huge. Neglecting to lock the house up tightly can lead to a nightmare scenario. As with the example above, vacationers are likely to return home to a messed up place with belongings missing. Instead of being able to relax after the trip, they will be forced to contact police officials and deal with insurance adjusters.

Have A Professional Company Install A Security System That Also Offers Video Monitoring

Alarms, security cameras, and window/door sensors are often enough to deter criminals from breaking into your home. However, if the devices don't do the trick, and a burglar decides to take his or her chances anyway, the monitoring agency will become alerted to the problem. Then, they can review the camera footage to see if it is a real or false alarm. For example, a sensor could have just been triggered by a tree branch breaking and hitting up against the house. If the event is real, and a trespasser is present, they will contact the local authorities to get them on the scene promptly.

Utilize these tips and any others that you have up your sleeve to keep your property safe and secure while your family goes on vacation. After all, the only thing everybody should be worrying about is having a fun and enjoyable time. Take the preventative measures now to avoid catastrophe later.

"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.

"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!"
