Doorbell cameras can give homeowners an extra sense security and provide another level of deterrence to criminals. It is comforting to know who has approached your house, and to have an electronic record of the events.
Professionally monitored alarm systems are vital crime deterrents. In the case of an emergency, they alert the authorities and get them on the scene fast. Every home should have an alarm system installed and actively monitored. We have partnered with Security World of Houston for monitored security systems. Combined with Security World Houston we bring 30+ years of experience and the care and attention that only a proven local alarm installer can provide. We offer the flexibility to meet the needs of any budget, from a simple system to the latest monitored home automation technology.
Just like video doorbells, security cameras can give homeowners an extra sense of security as well as another level of deterrence to criminals. We recommend strategic placement in vulnerable areas around the perimeter of the house. Properly placed security cameras can prevent a would-be home invader from having undetected access in the nooks and crannies around your house.
A kicking attack is a common route of entry of home invaders. Many doors can be kicked in with just one kick. Reinforcements can be made to your door that make it much more difficult to be kicked in. This will provide you time and it poses a strong deterrent to the would-be home invader.
Reinforced steel plates fit between the door frame and the door hinges and locks. They provide fortification to the common weak points of doors. Once installed the door armor plates are unobtrusive and likely will never be noticed. If they are ever needed, however, provide unequaled protection and value.
Robust 3" Fasteners
Sometimes increasing security is as simple as removing the short inexpensive screws that many people find in their doors and replacing with quality exterior grade 3-inch screws. This high-quality hardware, along with the armor plates, make the normal break points of a door extremely resistant to failure.
Double Cylinder Deadbolts
Double cylinder deadbolts are crucial when a window is present next to the deadbolt. Doors with glass panels, as well as side light windows next to deadbolts pose a unique security risk. All that a would-be intruder needs to do is break the glass and reach in to flip the deadbolt. A double cylinder deadbolt has keys on both sides of the door and prevents this type of attack.
French Door Reinforcement
French doors in the back-porch area are vulnerable points of attack and entry. There are varying levels of security reinforcement that can be added to French doors to mitigate this risk area.
3m Safety & Security Film
3M Safety & Security film is a unique technology for reinforcement of windows. It is designed to be extremely tough while being almost completely invisible. When the window is broken, the 3M film holds the glass together and to the window frame, keeping the barrier in place.
The next level of window protection is security screens. These screens are made of stainless steel and not the usual nylon. It is extremely difficult to cut through these security screens. The screens can be designed for easy egress in the case of a fire.
Security bars provide the highest protection against unauthorized entry. They can be installed inside the house and intelligently designed to mimic the appearance of the window lattice. This keeps them unobtrusive; they are not the eye-sore that most people think of when they hear the words: security bars. They can also be designed for easy egress in the case of a fire.
