Why Condo Owners Need A Security System

February 22nd, 2019

Those who live in a Houston, TX condo often feel as though they’re safe and protected from harm. After all, most condos have some kind of security measures in place such as cameras and even a guard. But the fact is that you may actually need a security system for your own condominium.

Why You Need Additional Security

It’s easier to feel safe when you live in a condo, but doing so does come with some risks such as increased foot traffic and more difficulty identifying potentially unwelcome guests. A few reasons stand out as why you need to go further and invest in additional security systems for your condo.

  • Extra Eyes – With a good security system you will always know who is entering your condo. Maintenance workers and outside contractors are often employed by property managers, and installing your own security system gives you clear notifications and alerts if someone enters without your permission.
  • Protection From The Unforeseen – Your condo security guard can’t monitor your specific condo at all times. Just because you’re in a multi-home structure doesn’t mean you’re less likely to be targeted by criminals. Your own security system will help protect you and give you peace of mind.
  • Remote Monitoring – While your alarm system will be important for alerting you to potential threats or break-ins, modern cameras also allow you to quickly and easily view the live feed of your home using nothing but your smartphone.
  • Affordability – And best of all, these benefits don’t have to cost a fortune. Thanks to the fairly simple design and floor plans of most condos, it’s easy to install a few sensors or cameras to give yourself complete protection.

Easy Steps For More Security

If you’re ready to start increasing your security setup, there are a few main things that you can focus on. Here are some of the key ways to easily boost your security.

  • Install A Good System – The first step is simply to invest in a security system for your condo. A good system can be had for little overall cost and will give you cameras and an alarm.
  • Use Timers For Lights – If you’re not at the condo, consider using automatic timers that turn lights on and off at different times. This can trick intruders into thinking someone is home.
  • Add a Viewing Hole – If your door doesn’t have a peephole, talk to your condo association to see if you may install one or install a new door with a peephole. This will give you the ability to see who is outside before you open the door.

These simple steps can give you more peace of mind and more protection, keeping you and your loved ones safe in your condo.

Professional Help

And of course, if you want to truly make sure that you’re safe and protected, the best option is to talk to a professional security expert. The pros can examine your current situation and identify areas that security can be improved through various measures. This gives you maximum protection and peace of mind.

"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!"
