Security systems

Security technology is more advanced now than it has ever been before, and yet break-ins and burglaries are still a big concern for business owners.

Fortunately, there are a few simple security measures that you can take in order to protect your business from crime, even when you're not on the premises. We specialise in security here at IDS - here are 4 security tips to help you safeguard your premises:

1. Lock all doors and windows.

This should go without saying, but many a business owner has gone home at the end of another day without locking up properly and ended up paying the price. You obviously need to lock all doors when you're not on the premises, but you should also be sure to shut and lock all windows: an open window is an easy access point for a burglar, and even if it's not open very wide, the intruder may still be able to force it open and climb through.

2. Make sure you've got good locking hardware.

Locks are your building's primary defence against trespassers, so do a little research and make sure you're using strong, high-quality locking hardware on all entrance points. You may also wish to invest in some shutters to give your premises an extra line of fortification.

3. Install an alarm system.

A good intruder alarm system will deter trespassers, and some of the more modern systems will automatically call the police when set off. Make sure you train your staff to activate and deactivate the alarm system, especially if they're responsible for opening and/or locking up the premises - you don't want them to leave the alarm system switched off overnight, and nor do you want them setting off the alarm and summoning the police for no reason!

4. Use CCTV cameras to keep watch while you're away.

Security cameras can be another very effective means of deterring potential burglars - most people won't commit a crime when they know that there's a camera watching their every move! Furthermore, if you are the victim of a break-in / burglary, CCTV footage can help the authorities to identify and track down the culprit more easily.

While we've previously highlighted the many advantages of CCTV systems in schools, we felt that it was also important to demonstrate the need for effective security alarms in educational facilities, particularly during periods of non-operation. During after-school hours and holiday recesses, school grounds may become targets for theft and vandalism, which can be costly and highly disruptive to school life.

With the addition of an effective security alarm system, instances of trespassing and other criminal activity can be identified quickly and responded to accordingly, reducing the impact of any such occurrences as much as possible.

Here at IDS, we design and install security systems for a variety of purposes, with all the knowledge and experience needed to provide reliable security alarms on a large scale. Having worked with a variety of educational institutions in the past, we know exactly how to plan and deliver functional and effective security alarm systems for schools, whatever the individual needs of the client may be. 

As well as providing a comprehensive planning and installation service, we also provide continued support for schools, with our 24/7 monitoring and call-out service. By monitoring our security alarms around the clock, we can ensure that fast and appropriate action is taken in the case of a security breech, using the latest digital signalling technology to inform the emergency services if necessary. Our engineers are also on call 24 hours a day, every day throughout the year, providing valuable assistance for our clients when required.

Fire detection

Fire alarm systems are the most important and essential safety measure for any home or business, and while you may hope that you never have to use them, it is imperative that these systems provide reliable detection and warning in the event of a fire.

At IDS we design systems to meet the specific needs of customers in properties and establishments of all sizes, providing state-of-the-art fire detection technology and professional installation, to ensure that the systems being installed meet the strict standards needed to provide maximum safety. 

In addition to our installation service, we also provide the added benefit of a 24/7 call out and engineering service, along with a fire alarm monitoring service. In order to ensure that your fire alarm system is functioning properly, and continues to deliver the high standard of safety expected, our call out service will help to solve any issues you are having with your system. Our fire alarm monitoring service will also provide additional support in the case of fire alarm activation, to ensure that the situation is able to be addressed as promptly and appropriately as possible.

Some benefits of fire alarm monitoring include:
  • Quick response to the location of the fire.
  • Rapid correspondence with the emergency services.
  • Peace of mind for property owners when they are away from their property.
Whether you simply need a conventional alarm, or a networked, addressable fire safety solution, we can provide a carefully considered and safely installed system, which will be monitored and maintained to the highest possible standard.
