Tips To Assist Women In Staying Safe While They Are Out And About Or At Home

August 28th, 2019

Females are often victims of sexual assaults. That is not to say that men can't be or aren't, but this post is going to focus on women. Ladies don't want others to experience the events, but they also do not want them to happen to them either. Of course, there are different types of crimes that they can be subjected to as well. Therefore, Houston women must take proactive measures to, hopefully, keep themselves safely out of harm's way.

Thankfully, there are a variety of tactics that women can take for protection. In other words, they don't have to merely accept sexual assault and become a victim. Hence, curious persons should stay right here to learn about some steps they can take to stay safe, regardless of where they are, home, work, jogging in the park, or somewhere else. 

Install A Security System

Living alone can be a bit intimidating and scary for anyone, anywhere, including right here in Houston. After all, there is no telling when an intruder may decide to break-in. Plus, things go bump in the night, and it is anybody's guess as to whether those thumps are something serious or not. With any luck, the sound will be from a cat in a trashcan in the back yard, but one can't be too careful. A security system can prove to be a woman's perfect solution.

If the homeowner chooses an unmonitored alarm, the unit will create a loud, blaring sound upon a perimeter breach. So, if somebody decides to jimmy open a door or window, the noise will likely scare the trespasser away. There is also the option of having a security company install a system with 24/7 monitoring service. Then, the woman will gain peace of mind in knowing that agents are watching her back no matter what time of day it is.

Enroll In A Self-Defense Class

Sometimes, Houston females cannot prevent issues from occurring as they can't control what other people do. However, women can regulate how they react to the situation at hand. Self-defense instructors teach pupils various holds, escape moves, and other techniques to protect themselves against attackers. Even if the student never has to use the methods, they will be prepared for those just in case moments. Also, these courses are a great way to break a sweat, make the blood circulate, and get into shape.

Women Should Continually Keep Their Head On A Swivel

Ladies shouldn't have to watch their backs everywhere they go, but unfortunately, if they don't, catastrophe could strike in the blink of an eye. It is a good idea for an individual to tell her friends or family members when she is going to arrive somewhere. Then, if she starts running extremely late and doesn't pick up her phone, they will know that something is wrong. Additionally, women should consider traveling with a protective device such as a can of mace or a taser. Nobody wants to think about these issues, but they must these days because there is no telling when an offender might be lurking in the shadows.

"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!"
