Simple Steps Any Homeowner Can Take To Create A Safer Home

November 26th, 2019

Creating a safe home is something that most Houston, TX home owners are concerned with to some extent. Afterall, your home should be you and your family’s safe haven after a long day. It’s where you store all of your belongings, it’s where you lay your head at night, and it’s where you should be able to relieve yourself of the stresses of the day. Many homeowners of Houston, TX have an inflated view of the actual safety of their home, however, and their properties may not be quite as safe as they think they are.

A burglary occurs in the United States right around every 22 seconds of every day, even in homes of the Houston, TX region. Unless the proper precautions are made, any homeowner could be putting themselves at risk of being the target for the next 22 second cycle.

4 Steps You Can Make To Better Secure Your Home

There are some very simple steps any homeowner can make to improve the safety of their home in a very real and effective way. 4 steps you can make to better secure your area home are:

1. Consider your landscaping Burglars don’t want to be caught, and they’ll look for properties that offer ample places to hide so they won’t be. Your landscaping could be providing cover for today’s burglars, making your home a more attractive target to carry out their next crime. If your home has overgrown areas of brush, bushes near windows or other entryways, or large shady trees, a burglar may look at you as an attractive target.

2. Install security cameras Security cameras can be one of the most effective deterrents there is when it comes to stopping burglaries, and they provide evidence should any type of crime occur. Burglars will see signage pointing to your cameras, and know that their actions are being recorded on your property.

3. Utilize motion sensor lights It’s difficult to go unnoticed when you’re under the spotlight, and that’s just what motion sensor lights provide. Not only do they take away any cover of darkness, but they give off the impression of activity around the home. A burglar who doesn’t wish to be caught won’t want to be seen by neighbors, homeowners, or their families.

4. Alarm systems armed during the day While most think that burglaries are nighttime crimes, statistics show that most burglaries in the United States actually happen during the day. The thought behind this is simple – most families are at work or school during daytime hours, so homes are left vacant and ripe for the taking. Alarm systems guarding your home during daytime hours ensures your property is protected while you’re not around.

"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!"
