Local Security Companies Can Offer More

June 28th, 2019

Whether you’re just thinking of your home or your business lifeit’s never a bad idea to considering investing in a security system. Choosing to install a security system on your Houston, TX property not only gives you a bit more peace of mind, but it can also be an active deterrent to reduce the chances of being victimized by crime. 

However, investing in security is just that; an investment. It’s something that you want to do right, so you can feel better about your property being protected. One of the best ways to ensure you get that peace of mind is to leave it to the experts. But which experts should you choose? Sometimes the biggest answer is not always the best. 

National vs. Local 

If you’ve decided that you want to bring in security experts to assess your Houston, TX property, listen to your needs and make a recommendation about the type of security network that meets your needs, you’re probably down to two choices. You can either go with a large, national or even multi-national security company or go with a smaller, local security firm. 

One of the most important, safest of choices are already made; going to the experts ensures you’ll get the quality craft you deserve. But there may be a difference in what these two different groups can offer you. That doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that one is the better than the other. 

The Service Factor 

One area that might make a difference when it comes to national versus local companies is the way they treat you. Service is what smaller companies live and die by because they know they don’t have the resources of a bigger company backing them. With larger companies, mediocre to indifferent service may have more latitude because losing one customer in the area can often be offset with more customers in another part of the country. 

With a local company, they know that repeat customers are the blood that keeps them going. They work hard to make sure customers are satisfied because there is much more riding on their performance. 

They Know The Lay Of The Land 

Bigger companies tend to stress operational efficiency across as wide a spectrum of the company as possible. This may sometimes mean that corporate policies or rules don’t always reflect the reality of the situation where a company’s franchise is. For example, if a multi-national company is having a company-wide “spring special” on select products to welcome the warm weather, this is almost a practical joke for the Australian franchise, which is welcoming winter. 

A local company knows what’s going on where you live and work. They know what the weather is like, they have a better understanding of the characteristics of the local geography, and they know what the people and conditions of the area are. This means that they may have a better understanding of what your needs are, because, like you, they’re local.

"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!"
