The Advantages of Having the Right Home Security Cameras

July 2nd, 2019

With break-ins being a problem in this country, it is important that we do what we can to protect our home and our family. To do this, we need to have the right surveillance system and cameras in place to deter criminals and protect our property. Security cameras offer one more layer of protection and helps keep your home off the list of targets for a potential burglar.

Using Security Cameras

When installing security cameras, they should be installed on the interior and exterior of the home. Even just the sight of cameras may be enough to deter a potential criminal and cause them to move elsewhere. Even feeling like they have the slightest chance of being caught will make them think twice about choosing your home. No criminal wants to be caught on camera breaking the law.

Peace of Mind

Security cameras offer you peace of mind as well. You can rest comfortably knowing that your home and your family are protected. The sense of security you feel is well worth the initial upfront investment of installing your high-quality security system. This sense of security is further compounded because you have taken the steps to lessen your chances of becoming a burglary victim.

Monitor the Front Door

You can also have a camera installed at your front door and at the other entrances of the home. This allows you to see who is at the door without actually having to open it or first acknowledge that anyone is there. Simply check your camera footage before going to the door, so there aren't any surprises.

Proper Installation

When choosing your security system and company, you also have to consider the installation of the cameras because an improperly installed camera is just as bad as not having the cameras at all. The cameras need to be strategically placed inside and outside of the home so you have a clear view of all the places a criminal could enter your property.

Installing them in the right areas also allows you access to the absolute best footage you can get if something did happen. One of the most popular areas of entry of a home for a burglar is the first-floor windows, so keep this in mind when choosing and installing cameras.

The other areas to make sure to monitor are the front and back door entrances. More than 80% of burglars make their way into a home through the first floor, so this is the area you want to make sure to monitor. 

The cameras also should be out of reach so no one can tamper with them. If they are easily accessible, the burglar can smash and damage them, rendering the cameras useless. Choosing a spot nine feet above the ground outside is the best place for your exterior camera placement.

"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!"
