October 16th, 2019

There are already several ways you can improve the value of your Houston home. From hardwood flooring to an updated kitchen and bathroom, you can make a few changes and successfully increase the worth of the home.

Were you aware there are also a few security-related items you can get as well to accomplish the same thing? Home automation is beneficial, and if you are trying to sell your home, you will find that it makes for a great selling point and greatly appeals to potential buyers.

The following are a few examples of security equipment you can get to help improve the value of your home.

Smart Thermostats

These allow you to save on your energy consumption and reduce your energy bills. Many smart thermostats actually wind up paying for themselves in just a couple of short years. With these thermostats, the homeowner can adjust the temperature in the home and set it for a specific time of the day and can be controlled with your mobile device.

Smart Lights

If you want to be able to control the lighting in the home and turn the lights on and off as you please through your mobile device, then smart lights can accomplish this. There is also voice-activated technology, and the lights can be put on a pre-set schedule. This adds value for potential homeowners and makes the buying process and decisions much easier.

Smart Doorbells

This is something you can integrate with your smartphone as well so you can see who is at the door and communicate with them without having to open the door or even be at the home. This is great for potential buyers because it makes a good first impression. You can also install smart locks for even more protection.

Alarm Monitoring

This is another example of technology for the home that is becoming increasingly popular. When this kind of hardware is installed in the home before the home is purchased, it not only saves the new buyer money but it also saves time, and this is very attractive when choosing to purchase the home.

It also allows for 24/7 monitoring, and the total cost of the system is less than the average costs involved because of a home invasion.


Also in line with the security of the home are the fire alarms and smoke detectors. Having this very necessary equipment is important and instantly adds value to the property. There are temperature sensors that can protect from environmental hazards such as frozen and broken pipes, and water sensors can warn you of any potential flooding there may be in the home.

These preventative measures are appealing to potential buyers because they are already installed, and it can save them money down the road by helping to lower their insurance costs.

As you can see, there are several ways that smart home automation can quickly increase the value of your home and make it more appealing to a potential buyer. For more information on this technology and other security equipment, contact a security company in Houston, TX 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!"
