Why Every Porch Can Benefit From a Security Camera

May 10th, 2019

Many homeowners in Houston, TX believe that the majority of home burglaries occur at night under the cover of darkness; however, this is not true. Most home burglaries actually occur during the daytime hours, and many of them are brazen enough to walk right on through your front door.

Many don't realize that the front door needs surveillance just as any other point of entry to the home does such as the windows and back doors.

Identifying If You Are a Target

Most burglars don't just pick a house at random. Instead, they take their time to watch the property to decide what the best time would be to enter the home. They will pay close attention to the routines and habits of the homeowners and residents as they plan their burglary.

Once the adults are off to work and the children of the home go to school, it is the ideal time for the burglar to make their move. Once they get in through the door, they will most likely only spend a minute or so inside the home because they are already well aware of the items they want to steal.

To catch a criminal that is in and out of your home in less than a minute, you will need to have a surveillance system with video cameras. If you do not have this kind of surveillance, then you just may be an easy target for criminals in Houston, TX.

Catching a Thief

Even if you feel that your home is more than secure, you can still fall victim to a more experienced burglar. So, while you may not always be able to keep them out of the home, you still have a better chance of catching them when you have the right surveillance system in place for your home.

Your Surveillance System

Choose video cameras that can capture and display high-definition videos to provide you with footage that can be used in the case of an incident. You should also be able to view the footage and real-time footage easily from your smartphone or another mobile device.

If you have access to high-quality videos, it is much more likely that you will be able to identify the burglar and have a clear idea of what they went into the home to steal. This kind of clarity is important when your case moves to court and can be valuable evidence for your insurance company.

Placing cameras on the front porch of the home so that they face the front door is a great way to keep an eye on things when you are away. A lot of front porch cameras are wireless, so you can install them in the precise location you need to get the best view of the front door. They are also a low-cost solution for the home that adds another much-needed level of security and protection for your family and your belongings in Houston, TX.


"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!"
