All the latest security news and information, plus insights and updates from IDS Security Systems Ltd.

At IDS, we use the very latest fire protection technology to deliver a system that is intelligently tailored to the individual needs of each client. In order to provide the correct level of protection, while also delivering ease of use and value for money, we offer a variety of of fire alarm systems, which include:

  • Conventional Fire Alarms - Each and every property should have a carefully planned and professionally installed fire alarm system, which provides invaluable protection and peace of mind. Here at IDS, we have extensive experience in the installation and maintenance of conventional fire alarm systems, for both the residential and commercial sector.

  • Addressable Fire Alarm Systems - For large buildings and commercial premises spread over a wide area, a more enhanced fire protection system may be required, in order to provide the desired level of protection and organisational control. These systems give the user advanced capabilities, allowing specific actions and monitoring tasks to be integrated into the system, while providing fast and precise detection in the event of a fire.

  • Wireless Fire Alarm Systems - Our wireless alarm systems provide advanced fire protection, without the need to install a complex network of wires and cables. This is of particular benefit to structures which are protected for conservation purposes, allowing a safe level of fire detection and prevention, while also complying to other regulations imposed on the building. These systems are also advantageous to buildings where a longer installation processes would be inconvenient, as well as temporary set ups, such as premises with ongoing building work.

As a business owner, you no doubt want to keep the cost of running your business as low as possible. This can be achieved by - for example - moving certain systems online, or adopting an environmental management system that helps you to cut down on water and energy bills. Both of these are smart, sensible money-saving moves.

But what about the cost of protecting your business with a security system? Is this an expense that you can safely cut from your company's budget as long as you remember to lock up properly every night? Or is security technology a necessary expenditure that's worth the cost?

Security Cameras

The answer does depend slightly on the nature of your business and the industry you're in, but generally speaking, it is in every business owner's best interest to secure their premises with a security system.

Not only will certain types of security system make it far more difficult for intruders to access your building, they can actually deter would-be criminals from even attempting to enter in the first place. Most burglars will not target a property that is visibly protected by an alarm system and/or monitored by security cameras, and in the event that a break-in does occur, a good-quality security system can help you and the authorities to find the trespasser and - hopefully - recover any stolen goods.

Which security system should I get?

Once you've decided to have a security system installed on your company's premises, the next hurdle is deciding what kind of security system to utilise. Here are just a few of the available options:
  • Security Alarms - Many business owners use alarm systems to keep trespassers off their premises overnight. The alarm system is armed when the building is locked up, and if anybody enters, the alarm will sound and (depending on your alarm system) the police may automatically be notified of the break-in. Authorised personnel can disarm the alarm system by entering a secret code or scanning an electronic tag.

  • CCTV Cameras - CCTV cameras record video footage of your premises, so everything is caught on camera. This footage can help with police investigations, and as mentioned above, intruders are often put off when they notice a CCTV camera monitoring the building they are thinking of targeting.

  • Access Control Systems - These systems allow you to manage access to your premises, restricting unauthorised entry via a variety of different methods. Some door entry systems require guests to enter a passcode or swipe a keycard, while others use sophisticated biometric technology (e.g. fingerprint recognition).
Of course, there's no reason why you can't combine multiple security systems and protect your business using several different technologies. Whatever you need from your security system(s), get in touch with IDS Security Systems Ltd today - we supply, install, and service a wide variety of cutting-edge security solutions across Wales and England.
