Protecting Your Home from the Inside Out with an Alarm System

August 13th, 2019

Alarm systems and security cameras do a good job of protecting both the inside and outside of your home. Smoke detectors on the inside of your Houston home are also another way you can raise the safety and protection of your home for the family in addition to carbon monoxide detectors. 

When you use an alarm system, you are taking the steps necessary to protect your property and family and keep them safe. So, as you protect the inside of the home in these various ways, you want to pay the same great attention to the exterior of the home as well.

Yard Safety

If you have children or pets that play outside, then you want to make sure that they remain safe and protected from all the dangers that may be lurking outdoors − including those unseen dangers that may creep up. The following are a couple of things you can do to practice yard safety.

Call 811

While you call 911 for an emergency, 811 is another useful number. This is the number you should call before you dig in your Houston yard to plant, install a sprinkler system, do any landscaping, or anything else that involves work in the yard and digging. 

Utilities are buried in the ground and in yards. So, to protect yourself and your family, you should call 811 to help prevent any injuries and outages that can ultimately lead to costly repairs and fines. 

Use Fencing

Invisible fences can be installed around your property if you want the protection but don't like how regular fencing may make your yard look. However, this will only keep your dogs in; it will not be able to keep other people and dogs out of your yard. 

If this is a concern, then you should consider putting up regular fencing. This is also a good idea if you have small children, so they can remain safe while playing outside.

Safety Around the Pool

Pool safety is another big home concern. If you have a pool, then you need to make sure that the interior and exterior of the home is guarded. Adding motion lights and other similar elements outside can go a long way in keeping the pool area safe.

You should also consider purchasing an alarm system to help with your yard safety concerns as well. With an alarm system, you can tailor it to fit the unique needs of your home and your yard. 

You can choose how many cameras you need to make sure that every area is adequately monitored. If you have a pool, you can also get alarms on each door, so you know if someone opens the door to go out to the pool area.

Taking all these precautions are just a good start to keeping your home and family safe. For any other questions or safety concerns you may have and more information on choosing an alarm system for your home, contact a reliable security company in Houston, TX. 

"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!"
