Making Your Security System As Smart As Your Phone

February 27th, 2019

Technology has changed the way people protect their homes and businesses. Surveillance cameras can keep a watchful eye on multiple areas of a property to both deter would-be criminals, and to capture criminal activity when it occurs. Having good surveillance can provide the assurance that your property is well-protected, and modern advancements have made it easier than ever to keep watch over your Houston business from anywhere.  

Technology Has Made It Easier To Monitor Activity  

In the past, video footage was first recorded, and then rewound and viewed at a later time to monitor suspicious activity. Today, the introduction of mobile applications have made it possible to monitor activity in real-time right from your smartphone. This type of connection helps give you peace of mind no matter where you are. There are many benefits to using this technology, as well as many reasons why you should consider using it. 

Three Things To Consider  

1) You’re not taking anything away from your system. Linking your security system to your smartphone doesn’t mean that you’ll no longer need a monitor. It simply means that you’ll have the added benefit of checking your security cameras no matter how far away you are from that monitor. You won’t be giving up any of the other features of your DVR; you’re only adding to more features to it. As long as you purchase a DVR that connects to a smartphone, all you’ll need is an app and an internet connection to check your cameras regularly. 

2) You can go home again. Many business owners worry about the state of their Houston property while they’re at home, making it difficult to leave work at work. With the old surveillance systems, you could only monitor activity when on the premises. By hooking it to your smartphone, you can watch what’s happening from your living room recliner, if you wish. Check everything from employee activity to what’s going on in the parking lot. 

3) You can take that much-needed vacation. Many business owners neglect travel plans because they’re too worried about what will happen when they’re away. There are many common reasons why employee theft can occur, and some business owners are afraid that it can happen if they go away. Bosses have been known to avoid vacations, and even business trips, to keep an eye on things. Connecting your surveillance camera to your smartphone eliminates this problem, giving you access to footage anywhere you go.

"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!"
