The Importance Of A Home Security System

November 26th, 2019

Some people think that having a home security system is an unnecessary expense. Given that the FBI has reported a continuous decline in the number of crimes, including property crimes, some may think that this belief is reasonable. However, the decrease in crimes does not eliminate the risk of being a victim. Besides, there are a lot of benefits one can get from it.

Protecting The Household

  • Perhaps the most common reason for installing a security system is to protect one’s home and family. Studies have shown that having an alarm system can prevent break-ins. Hearing an alarm can make an intruder leave. But if in case that it does not hinder an intruder’s plans, it can still serve as a warning to those inside to move to a safer location or go outside while waiting for authorities.

  • Modern security systems can also add another layer of protection with an early warning system in case of fire. One can also get information on the presence of fire, including the source of heat. Fire can spread fast. That is why it is necessary to know about it before it is too late.

  • Peace of mind is also something one can have through a security system. Knowing that one’s home is well-protected can reduce worries. It is especially helpful to the elderly or people who have medical conditions. 

  • Homes are where people usually keep their valuables. Burglars know this too. That is why they target vulnerable properties. Most burglars steal smaller items that have more retail value, such as jewelry or gadgets. In 2018, the estimated value of property losses due to burglaries reached $3.4 billion.  

Remote Access

Homeowners in Houston can still watch over their homes even when they are away. Some security systems allow remote access. One can arm or disarm the home alarms, monitor the video surveillance footage, turn lights on or off, and control the temperature.

Not only can a homeowner watch their Houston home for intruders, but one can also protect one’s property without moving an inch from one’s location. If you are on a vacation or business trip, you can make it look like someone is at home by turning on the lights at a specific time.

Save Energy

One way of increasing the functions of a security system for your home in Houston, TX is through home automation. One can prepare for temperature changes by adjusting the air conditioning or heating systems. This way, you can avoid pipe damage and save on your electric bills. Some systems also allow connection to some appliances. Now, homeowners can secure their homes and reduce their energy consumption.

A home security system may be one of the best investments one can have. It is useful and practical. Some people think that having one can be costly. However, one would realize that spending some bucks for this system is worth it. If you are interested in having one, contact us to learn more. 

"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!"
