The Future Of Physical Security

May 20th, 2019

For the average small to medium sized Houston, TX business, high-tech physical security measures may seem somewhat out of reach. This is not due to a lack of vision, but due to costs of these advanced physical security measures, they’re often not in the cards for the average smaller business owner. A fully integrated physical security platform that works hand in hand with your technological security measures might be found in the latest and greatest state of the art chain stores, but they’re not often found at the typical Houston, TX independently run business.

For the average Houston, TX retailer, security upgrades and installations are typically done one installation at a time. Bridging this gap between the security of yesterday and the security measures of today is slow-going, and often not as budget friendly as many retailers of the area would ideally like.

Physical Security One Step At A Time

For most Houston business owners, the pathway to security is taken one step at a time, and this is how you can approach fully integrated physical security as well. Achieving your vision of peak physical security does not mean fully installing the latest and greatest straight away, and there is nothing wrong with taking it on piece by piece. 4 steps to take in moving toward this future of physical security include:

  • Consider your infrastructure – It’s important to consider your infrastructure first, and not to simply deploy a multitude of new technologies on an older existing infrastructure without much thought. This could result in bogged down and poorly working systems, that require a costly investment without yielding the results you want. Before considering your security measures, always consider your infrastructure first.
  • Start your move toward the cloud – Most all physical security measures are making their way to the cloud, like many other technologies of today. Moving your data and your systems to the cloud (if they aren’t there already) will work to prepare you for your new physical security installation.
  • Begin bridging your communication gap – Communicate with departments including and outside of your IT team. Collaborating with your stakeholders will uncover many different heroes within your organization for your security strategy.
  • Keep in mind your IT security – Before investing in your physical security, make sure your IT security is top of the line. Protection for your wireless network, protected cloud service, and protected data should be ensured before physical security comes in to play.

Taking Your Security System To The Level Of Tomorrow

Taking your security system to the level of tomorrow doesn’t need to be one massive investment, and can be taken one step at a time to ensure a reasonable and easy to manage experience. By taking a few steps first, and then beginning your physical security investment, you can rest assured that you’re laying a strong foundation to maximize your physical security investment’s potential. With the incredible potential of today’s physical security technologies, it’s reasonable to expect these measures will continue to grow even better.

"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!"
