Moving Apartments This Fall? Bring A Security System With You

August 19th, 2019

Most apartment buildings and apartment complexes in Houston, TX have some amount of security built in.  They may have an entrance a resident has to buzz to let a guest in, they may have grounds with limited entrances, and they may have security cameras set up in the parking areas and the public grounds.  However, they may not have enough security for their area, or you might want to keep your apartment safe from other tenants.  Fortunately, modern security technology offers a solution.

With older security systems you would have to install wires that run through the walls, large camera mounts, and other permanent fixtures.  Apartment managers don’t allow this kind of work on their buildings, so you had to stick with what the complex had.  Plus even if you could install better security for your apartment, the system would stay there after you moved out.  However, these days security technology is wireless, mobile, and easy to take with you.

Wireless Cameras

Surveillance cameras have gone through a technological revolution.  Old models used to need two cables, one to power the camera and one to send footage back to the monitors and recording devices.  These days you can get cameras that don’t need any cables:  instead they operate on battery power and send their feeds wirelessly through a Wi-Fi internet connection.  The cameras are also lightweight, so you can set them up on temporary mounts that won’t break your lease agreement and pack them up when it’s time to move.

Wireless Sensors

Sensors are also much smaller and lighter than they were a few decades ago.  That means you can set contact sensors on your doors and windows with just a little tape and put a window-shatter sensor in a room by plugging it into an outlet.  You can also arm and disarm your alarm system by sending a wireless signal from your smartphone, and that means you don’t need to install a security panel anywhere in your Houston, TX apartment.  Just like your cameras, you can take your sensors down and bring them with you when you move.

Security Stickers

Security stickers don’t do anything to protect your apartment home from burglars or nosy neighbors, but they can sometimes deter people from trying to sneak in while you’re not around.  That’s why security companies regularly provide stickers when you buy equipment from them or use their services, and it’s why some apartment tenants will buy the stickers on their own and hope for the best.  Depending on the design and the company these stickers can be easy or hard to remove, but if you have a few extras you can always apply another at your next address.

Whether you’re moving because of work, college, budget, or personal needs, you should have a security system that lets you feel comfortable at home.  Fortunately today’s security technology lets you take your favorite system with you whenever you move.  Find out your options for a mobile Houston, TX security setup today.

"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!"
