Why Use A Waterproof Security Camera?

February 18th, 2019

Security for the home or business in Houston, TX is always going to be a concern for prudent property owners. When you work hard, and own a home and/or business, you want to make sure that your investment is safe, and that the odds of theft or vandalism are lower.

This is why more people living and working in Houston, TX should consider investing in outdoor, waterproof, security cameras. This seems like an unlikely purchase, but in many respects, this can actually make for a safer home or workplace and even provide more peace of mind. Here’s how.

Easy To Install

Modern waterproof, outdoor security cameras don’t have the same challenges that older, analog CCTV cameras of the past experienced. Older cameras, for example, needed to transmit images through wires, and so cable had to be “spooled out” from a central room to wherever the cameras were installed. New cameras, however, are wireless, making installation much easier and cheaper.

Cost Effective

Because these cameras are wireless, and because you only need an Internet connection, a computer and the right software to view images, these are much cheaper security solutions than CCTVs of the past. However, despite being cheaper, they provide the same level of security and have even more convenience. You no longer have to build and maintain a CCTV room.

A Deterrent

Thieves prefer to take the “path of least resistance,” and do their dirty work where it’s easier. A security camera in place means you just raised the challenge and difficulty of your property. Outdoor, waterproof security cameras are one of the best ways to make a potential thief pass you right by, in search of an easier target.

Admissible Evidence

The deterrence factor of cameras get more reinforcement from the fact that the police, and the courts, trust video and photographic evidence. Images captured on an outdoor, waterproof security camera can, at first, be vital clues that help police conduct an investigation. Should they catch the thieves, then that video footage now becomes evidence that can be used by the prosecution in court to ensure that proof of a crime exists and that a jail sentence is on the way.

It’s Waterproof

Last, but certainly not least, an outdoor waterproof camera earns its merit badge by being tougher and more durable than other cameras. Most electronics are extremely vulnerable to moisture like rain or snow. However, a camera “hardened” against the elements means that it can provide years of reliable security, and can help to prevent criminal activity like breaking and entering, or even just deter mischief, such as graffiti, when people don’t want to be easily identified, defacing property.

People that choose to install outdoor, waterproof security cameras in Houston, TX enjoy an extra level of security and peace of mind. In some cases, cameras can even come in handy for checking out visiting guests or checking your outdoor camera while you’re at work to see if your delivery has been left on the door. There are plenty of advantages to making this security investment.

"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!"
