Security Cameras Have Many Uses

June 21st, 2019

Security cameras can be an essential piece of equipment for any home or business in Houston, TX. They can provide an essential piece of deterrence on your property, as many thieves will think twice about intruding on any place where their identifying features can be easily identified.

However, while crime prevention and investigation assistance are the chief advantages of security cameras in Houston, TX, that’s not the only thing they are good for. With a little bit of creativity, cameras can also prove to quite useful in other ways.

Employee Surveillance

It’s not just criminals that need to fear security cameras; they can work for you when it comes to keeping an eye on employees. Sadly, employee theft is that uncommon an occurrence. Security cameras that are positioned in key areas, such as the cashier counter, or the stock/inventory room can be very useful in preventing internal crime.

However, they can also be used to find employee behavior you think needs improvement or find employee behavior you want to encourage. When employees go above and beyond with customers in front of a camera, for example, you can quickly find out about this. Conversely, if employees handle a situation poorly, everyone can learn from watching the camera playback.

Insurance Disputes

Sometimes things happen outside or inside a home or business. A tree in the neighboring property falls through a window, or a contractor that was doing repair work gets careless and damages something. There are plenty of instances where you may need to be compensated for by your insurance because something has happened that you have coverage for. However, without proof that you are a victim of an accident, sometimes an insurance investigation will decide you manufactured an accident for your own gain.

Cameras outside or inside a property can often help corroborate your version of events. If you have indoor cameras, and a tree suddenly crashes through the window at the time you claimed, you have video proof. In the same way, if a careless worker under a contractor gets into an accident, and the camera caught it, you once again have proof that settles an insurance dispute.

Keep An Eye On Family

If you have children, or you have elderly parents, internal security cameras can be extremely useful for safety. For example, when you’re not home, but the children are with a baby sitter, internal security cameras can ensure that the kids are safe since you can remotely check the feed anytime you like. The presence of security cameras also ensures a baby sitter doesn’t mistreat children or invite friends over to use your home.

With elderly parents, security cameras can be essential in keeping them safe. People with mobility problems may fall or have other accidents where it can sometimes take hours to realize they need help. With a security camera, however, you can see—and assist—your parents with a quick check on their status.

Security cameras are great for many different purposes in Houston, TX. If you’d like to know more about security cameras for your property, and other uses for them; contact us today and let us help.

"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!"
