3 Reasons Why You Should Get A Security Camera System

March 6th, 2020

In today’s world, with the advent of technological advancements comes the creation of devices designed to keep you as secure as possible from outside threats. This includes security camera systems for your Houston, TX home. In the past, you may have conjured the idea of a security camera system as something typically reserved for the affluent, or for business owners who want to protect their investment. This, however, is far from the truth now, as most homeowners can and should get themselves a security camera system, and here are a few reasons why you should too.

It Wards Off Burglars

Statistics show that a home without a security system is at a greater amount of risk of being burglarized versus homes that do have one, with homes that have no security system in place being about three times likelier to be burglarized. By having a security camera system in place, you’re able to make burglars second-guess about breaking into your Houston, TX home. Even a dummy security camera system that’s just there for intimidation’s sake is likely to help you out somewhat, though it most definitely pays to have a quality security camera system to capture perpetrators in the act, as a sort of worst-case scenario in the case that your home does get cleaned out.

Keep An Eye On Your Kids While You’re Away

It’s not necessarily an inherently bad idea to leave your kids in the care of the babysitter, or someone similar, but it never hurts to have a way to keep track of what they’re doing while you’re gone. It sounds extremely pessimistic, but abuse cases involving a caretaker have been rising in recent years, with issues involving caretakers and substance abuse being common reasons to point to as the culprit. Kids can have reasons to be afraid to step forward and tell you about any cases of abuse committed against them, maybe they’re intimidated by the sitter, or they’re not sure if what happened was bad. So it’s always nice to have a security camera system in place to ensure you have a video to go back to, just to see if things are going awry.

Monitor Your Home and Know When Something’s Wrong

Criminal activity and child abuse are not the only things you ought to be worried about while you’re away. Your home might be at risk, simply because of human error. Examples of this might be as simple as you forgot to shut the stove off after heating up a kettle of water for your morning coffee, or forgetting to shut down the AC before you leave. There are ways to integrate a security camera system to be able to remotely operate your home through home automation so that you can shut things down when you forget. It’s a nice safety blanket to have, especially if you have a history of forgetting that one thing on your list before leaving your house.

There are other reasons out there pointing to getting a security camera system for your Houston, TX home as a good thing, but if you’re not fully convinced, you should consult a professional security provider about security camera systems and work something out that will suit you and your preferences.

"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!"
