Learning About The Types Of Surveillance Systems

July 31st, 2019

If you’ve been considering a surveillance system for your Houston, TX property, you may find that there are many different products on the market today. Modern technology has improved surveillance system technology exponentially in recent years, and there seems to be a different camera for every particular need. Getting to the bottom of different surveillance cameras gives you confidence in making the perfect decision. 

Types Of Surveillance Systems To Know

There are many different types of surveillance systems out there, but focusing on a select few gives a great start in choosing what is right for your Houston, TX property. These types of security camera systems to know are: 

  • Outdoor video surveillance systems – Outdoor video surveillance systems are specially built to withstand the elements and protect your Houston, TX property from the outside. These can be used to patrol your perimeter and make sure that no trespassers are coming in from the outside. Placement of these outdoor systems can be enough to deter criminals from ever coming near your property. 

  • Indoor surveillance systems – Indoor surveillance systems don’t require the weatherproofing of outdoor units, making them often smaller and more discreet. This gives them the benefit of being able to be installed in smaller and less obvious indoor areas. 

  • Hidden spy cameras – Hidden spy cameras are completely hidden, and they record your property when no one thinks they’re being watched. These must be placed in public areas of a property, but can serve to catch “sneaky” crimes like shoplifting and employee theft in Houston.

"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!"
