Waterproof Security Cameras Just Make Sense

June 4th, 2019

Security continues to be a concern for many homes and business owners in Houston, TX, and that’s with good reason. Crime is not something that every truly goes away, but it can be made more difficult to succeed at, or even discouraged.

One of the best ways to achieve this in Houston, TX is to use a security camera system. While there are plenty of camera systems designed to work indoors, such as in retail settings like stores, where there’s a lot of merchandise to keep track of, and potential shoplifting, cameras can be used outdoors too. However, one of the best investments are in waterproof outdoor security cameras, and there are several reasons for that.

More Durability

These types of cameras are built to last, and that means that they are far more reliable and longer lasting than a typical indoor model. While it is possible to try and use an indoor model outside, you can expect your results to have poor long term prospects.

Indoor cameras are built not deliberately to be more vulnerable, or weaker than outdoor cameras, but they are built with the assumption that they will be in a sheltered, static environment. Once you expose such cameras to extreme temperature variations and detritus like dirt and leaves, this shortens their lifespan.

More Cost Effective

Today’s waterproof security cameras are also easier on your wallet than the cameras of old, and that’s for a variety of reasons. There are savings in the installation because modern systems are often wireless, so this means you don’t have to pay for cables, nor do you have to pay for a dedicated CCTV security room with a bank of monitors devoted each to only one camera.

You also don’t have to pay for the upkeep, since modern waterproof cameras last longer and operate more reliably without needing repair or replacement. All of these little savings along the way add up to a better bottom line overall.

It’s Waterproof

Of course, the biggest advantage of a waterproof outdoor security camera is right in the name. All electronics, if left untreated, are extremely vulnerable to fluctuations in temperature, with little tolerance for water of any kind. Ordinarily, any electronic device that gets wet is broken, and this includes those that risk using indoor security cameras outdoors.

With a proper, waterproof outdoor camera that is configured for a harsher environment, the camera will continue to operate regardless of how many elements are piled against it. Rain won’t stop it, snow won’t either, and where other cameras may struggle with frigid temperatures, or the humidity of summer, the outdoor waterproof camera—as designed—can keep on working in situations that would be problematic for typical electronic devices.

This means that whether you’re thinking about outdoor waterproof cameras for your home, or your business in Houston, TX, you’ll be safer. A waterproof camera provides reliable operation and security coverage, and that means you enjoy more peace of mind, while at the same time having a great crime deterrent, and valuable investigative tool all rolled into one.

"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!"
