Upgrading Your Existing Home Security

April 19th, 2019

If you’ve had a home security system installed in your Houston, TX home within the last 10 years, you may feel as though you’ve done all you can do to secure your space, and now your job is done. However, as technology advances so do security systems, and so do the threats that you’re trying to keep at bay. Upgrading your home security system may seem like an intimidating or daunting task, but it’s more simple than many recognize, and it’s necessary for ensuring your home remains your safe haven.

Why Should I Upgrade My Existing Home Security?

There are many reasons to upgrade your existing home security, and if you haven’t investigated what modern security technology has to offer to your Houston, TX home, you may be surprised at what is available today. A few reasons to upgrade your home security are:

  • Remote control – Remote controls don’t refer to how you switch your television station, but how you’re able to customize and manage your home security systems from your very own smart device. Something of science fiction just a couple short decades ago, today’s modern security systems give you the ability to completely customize from the palm of your hand no matter where you’re located.
  • Systems that integrate into your home automation – Home automation is one of the biggest trends today, and it’s one expected to continue to grow in the coming years. Today’s home security systems utilize smart technology, and fit right in with your home automation systems. Using this tech, you can control your lights, your temperatures, your appliances, and your security all from one central integrated hub.
  • Older systems require landline connections – Landline connections are falling out of fashion, and many families of Houston, TX wish to cut the chord with their landline in favor of using the mobile phone line they already pay for. With older security systems, however, many require landline connections, and you’re not able to free up this budget space until you’re ready to upgrade.
  • Video surveillance to keep watch on the house – Today’s video surveillance offers remote control technologies that give you the ability to keep watch on the house for any reason. While it does help to keep a more secure home from outside intruders, it also gives homeowners peace of mind knowing their families and their pets are safe. If you’re stuck at work late, and you want to know if your teenagers have returned home safely at curfew, a simple remote check with your surveillance camera is all that is necessary.

Keeping A Modern Secure Home

With the leaps and bounds home automation technology and IoT devices have taken in progression during recent years, it’s easy to see how home security systems have followed suit. By upgrading your existing home security system, you can take advantage of the security features of today’s modern systems as well as the convenience and smart features that were unimaginable just a handful of short years ago.


"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!"
