Here at IDS we provide a variety of access control systems, which can be used to regulate access to a single door, or a computerised multi-site network of panels. These can be operated by smart cards, key fobs, and even by the most cutting-edge biometrics systems, which have the ability to authorise access based on highly individual, human characteristics. 

Using the ability to recognise unique details, such as a finger or palm print, the technology provides enhanced control and flexibility, which comes with a number of advantages. These include:

  • Accuracy: Unlike other access control measures the features analysed by biometric security systems cannot easily be duplicated, further reducing the chances of a security breech, and providing highly-specific access control.
  • Convenience: By eliminating the need for passcodes and key systems, biometric security devices provide a high level of user-friendliness and time efficiency. 
  • Versatility: The asset of convenience also makes them suitable for a number of environments and work settings, allowing them to be integrated with existing operations seamlessly.
  • Return on Investment: The advanced nature of biometric access control technology means that it provides a long-term solution for your security operations, which also reduces cots throughout the duration of its use (for example, by reducing the need to replace lost cards). 
We have experience in providing access solutions to clients in Cardiff, as well as several surrounding areas in South Wales and the West of England.  If you would like to find out more about biometric security systems, and how these can be tailored to meet the specific demands of your business/property, please feel free to get in touch with our team today.

Whether your business is a small, independently-operated store, or is part of a larger retail network, security is always a huge challenge for any company in this industry, regardless of size. Due to the level of public access on a day-to-day basis, retail security presents several challenges that are significantly heightened in comparison to other industries, which makes having the right systems in place a significant priority for several reasons, including:

  • The safety of staff and members of the public.
  • Damage and loss prevention.
  • Regulatory compliance.
  • Deterring criminal activity.
  • Ensuring that staff policy is being followed correctly.
Here at IDS, we have provided security systems for businesses of all sizes, across a variety of sectors, including retail enterprises. Using our expertise, we are able to devise, install and maintain a comprehensive selection of retail security solutions to address each of the concerns highlighted above. Here's a closer look at some of the systems we are able to provide:

CCTV Cameras/Systems: CCTV is a vital element of retail security for both large and small businesses, in order to detect and deter theft and damages. It can also be useful as a tool to resolve disagreements between staff and/or customers, providing clear and impartial evidence of personal conduct.

Fire Alarm Systems: Having a suitable fire alarm system is important for all homes and businesses, and is particularly important in areas with restricted access, such as retail establishments. In order to protect staff, as well as members of the public, fire alarm systems should be planned and installed with the correct safety concerns in mind, in order to provide efficient warning alerts in the event of a fire.

Intruder Alarms: While security staff and CCTV may be a suitable solution during hours of operation, additional measures should be used in order to protect your business out-of-hours. Intruder alarms can be tailored to meet the specific demands of your operation, with the ability to monitor activity at your establishment for a rapid response. 

Access Control Measures: Retail businesses often contain staff-only areas such as stock rooms, which should be restricted from public access. Access control systems provide a simple and adaptable solution to this problem, allowing you to prevent damage and theft of stock, as well as injuries to members of the public.

Security Camera Installation

If you've decided to protect your business with CCTV surveillance cameras, you may be tempted to simply buy a cheap system online and put it up in the office yourself.

However, it's a far better idea to contact a professional security installer and ask them to undertake a survey of your site - this will enable them to offer their expert opinion and recommend a CCTV system that is perfectly tailored to your requirements. They will also be able to install your new security cameras in such a way as to minimise blind spots and provide the best possible coverage of your premises.

All of the above services are available from IDS Security Systems Ltd. Based in Cardiff but serving clients throughout South Wales and beyond, we employ a team of experience security camera installers who have worked in a wide range of different business premises, including shops, offices, factories, warehouses and more. We'll send a security specialist to visit your site, conduct a full survey, and recommend the right security system for your business. We can also supply your state-of-the-art security cameras, take care of the installation, and even service them if you take out a maintenance contract with us.

Contact IDS Cardiff today to request a quotation for your security camera installation needs.

Factory

Over the years, we've worked with a variety of large and small businesses in all sorts of industries, including those which operate in particularly active and fast-paced environments. In the case of production and manufacturing companies, we've learnt a great deal about the level of security and attention to detail that is required by these businesses, in order to ensure that operations are completed safely and efficiently, in order to maximise productivity. 

CCTV systems offer an enhanced level of control across factory premises, enhancing the capabilities of security and supervision measures, order to maintain a high standard of care for both staff and customers, along with the products themselves. 

Here are just some of the benefits that CCTV systems are able to provide to factory owners and manufacturing companies:

  • Loss Control - Provides a solution to deter theft from both internal and external sources, while also serving as video evidence in the event of unlawful activity.

  • Health and Safety - CCTV aids the process of monitoring and maintaining the high level of safety required in factory environments, by identifying possible hazards from unsafe working conditions or practices, as well as ensuring that the existing systems are being properly followed and enforced.

  • Production Quality - Working practices are not only important for safety, but also contribute to the quality of the products themselves. CCTV allows employers to ensure that the correct levels or productivity are being maintained, while also identifying possible areas for future improvement.

  • Flexible and Comprehensive Monitoring - Having a CCTV network allows a variety of areas to be monitored at once, which is ideal for large companies who wish to maintain a high level of security, while also streamlining surveillance systems.

  • Enhanced Access Control & Intruder Detection - CCTV can be combined with alarm systems and entrances to detect and prevent intruders more efficiently, without increasing on-site staffing.
