If you run a business, whether it’s large or small, the security measures that you put into place to keep it safe from crime and other forms of disruptive activity are extremely important. Business such as offices, however, will feel the effects of poor security solutions more so than larger ones. Thefts, fires and break-ins cost organisations millions of pounds every single year, so offices would be making a wise investment to install proper and effective security measures. Here at IDS Security Systems, we offer a comprehensive range of security measures that will ensure your office is adequately protected. Take a look at the options we have for you to choose from below!
Access Control Systems
Access control systems are incredibly valuable within an office setting, as they allow access to your premises to authorised personnel only – this is a perfect option for an office that contains private and sensitive information. Access control systems come in various forms also, which makes them a great option for a range of offices. From fully computerised multi-site networks of control points to internal doors, we have the access control system best suited to your office. We utilise the latest security technologies such as biometrics and key fobs to ensure that your security system is up-to-date, offering maximum levels of safety.
These are a simple yet very effective means of keeping your business secure and to detract criminal activity. With surveillance technology progressing massively in recent years, there is no better time to implement a network of CCTV cameras around your office. We are continuously implementing the latest developments in CCTV technology such as fibre optic transmission and digital recording to provide you with contemporary solutions that you can place your entire trust and have full confidence in.
Intruder alarms are also a great measure when it comes to protecting businesses like offices. We are able to create a bespoke system with our state-of-the-art intruder alarms, to be installed and maintained by a team of experienced professionals. These systems are extremely effective as they are able to be monitored around-the-clock from our monitoring station, giving you peace of mind that your office can always be observed. These are particularly effective at detecting people who are not authorised to be on your premises.
With fires contributing to countless injuries and deaths every year, particularly within offices and other workplace environments, it is imperative that a proper fire safety measure such as an alarm is present within your business. It is also required by law, under Section 4 of the government’s guide to fire safety in the workplace, to have a ‘fire detection and warning system.’ The type of system depends on the building and the nature of the work that is carried out within your business. To get a better understanding of the exact fire alarm solution you need, help and advice from experts such as IDS Security Systems are available.
Each one of these security measures will go a long way to protecting your office. To make the levels of a safety for your business even greater, why not combining a number of these solutions to create one bespoke, comprehensive office security system?

If you own or operate a car park - whether it's a small patch of tarmac or a multi-storey parking complex - it's a good idea to use CCTV cameras to monitor what's happening there. CCTV will deter crime and improve customer trust, and if a break-in or theft should occur on your premises, the victim(s) may request CCTV footage to assist with police investigations.

Chwarae Teg (Welsh for 'fair play') is a charity whose stated mission is "to help ensure that Women in Wales can enter the workplace, develop their skills and build rewarding careers". At the Virgin Money Lounge in the centre of Cardiff last night, Chwarae Teg launched their new 'FairPlay Employer Network' with an event that brought together representatives from numerous Welsh businesses, including IDS Security Systems Ltd.
As a woman-led company, we at IDS Security are very much aligned with what Chwarae Teg are working to achieve. Our Managing Director Julie Halton attended the FairPlay Employer Network event in Cardiff last night and found it to be an inspirational experience. The primary topic of focus for the evening was inclusive recruitment and how it can drive success when done correctly - guest speaker Ryan Cullen gave a very insightful talk on this subject, using his own employer DevOpsGroup as a real-life example of the benefits that can come from switching to a more inclusive recruitment policy.
This was the first of what promises to be a most enlightening series of Chwarae Teg business events, and we look forward to details of the next FairPlay Employer Network evening.
