Is Your Home Safe and Secure? | West University Moms

May is here and Summer is just around the corner. With travel opening up, many Houston families will be going on trips and vacations. Sadly, this means it’s a prime time for opportunists who are ready to take advantage of empty, unprotected homes. If you’re planning a vacation this summer, protecting your home should be just as essential as coordinating travel logistics.

I recently had the opportunity to meet James Williams the owner of Xfactor Home Security, a family-owned business dedicated to keeping Houston homes and families safe.  He first did a walk-through of the house to assess points of entry including old windows and door fixtures that could be unsafe and upgraded. He also installed motion detector lights in the backyard which was a concern for me at night. The most exciting thing was installing my motion detector security camera hardwired through the garage/attic which records 24/7 and sets off the spotlight (if it’s at night) and gives me an alert on my phone if someone is in my driveway!  I am so thankful to have met James, his services have really brought peace to my life!

Every consultation with X Factor Home Security starts with a no-charge Security Consultation. We will learn about your security situation and your specific security needs. We will offer you customized options and solutions.

We can also offer a Home Security Survey that includes a report of your vulnerable areas, local crime stats, and customized solutions.


Doorbell cameras can give homeowners extra sense of 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.
