As a business owner, the security of your business should be very high on your list of priorities, and that goes double if you are running a small business. Break-ins, thefts, and fires cost businesses millions of pounds every year, so installing small business security systems to your premises is a very wise move indeed.
We at IDS Security Systems Ltd specialise in designing, installing and maintaining a range of small business security systems, including:
Intruder Alarm Systems
Installing an intruder alarm is a good security measure for a small business to take, but not all intruder alarms are created equal. To get the most out of your alarm system and the money you invest into it, you will need to ensure that your security system is managed effectively by a group of experienced experts.
Here at IDS, we offer a 24-hour monitoring and engineering service, providing you with peace of mind no matter what happens. Not only can our state-of-the-art intruder alarms detect unauthorised persons on your premises, they can also monitor for personal attacks and fires. If any of these things occur on your premises, we’ll ensure that the relevant emergency services are informed making this a wise choice for a small business security system.
If you haven’t considered doing so already, now is the perfect time to invest in a CCTV camera system for your business. Surveillance technology has come a long way in recent years, and we continually analyse the latest developments to ensure that our customers are always protected by the most up-to-date technology on the market.
Fire Alarm Systems
Every year, businesses sustain millions of pounds’ worth of damage due to fires. As a small business owner, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of your employees; it is also very much in your best interest to keep your building (and the assets inside) safe from fire.
We design, install and maintain a huge range of fire alarm solutions for small businesses across England and Wales. We are able to cover all categories of fire detection systems, from conventional formats through to complex multi-faceted systems.
Access Control Systems
Access control systems are extremely useful as small businesses security systems. These systems allow access only to authorised persons past a certain point - ideal for companies that deal with sensitive and/or confidential information.
IDS are able to supply and install a wide range of access control systems, from internal doors through to full computerised multi-site network of control points. Not only do we utilise the latest technologies (such as key fobs, smart cards and biometrics), we can also fully integrate your access control system to your alarm and/or CCTV systems to provide you with a truly comprehensive security system for your business.

UK employers are required by law to provide a safe workplace for their employees. One of the most crucial considerations for a business owner is fire safety - fires cause countless injuries and fatalities every year, and many of these incidents occurred in offices and other workplaces.
As an employer, your fire risk assessment will supply you with a number of different safety measures that you'll need to take in order to protect your staff from the risk of fire-related death or injury. Under the fire risk assessment, you must provide easily accessible fire exits, making sure that these points are clearly labelled and kept free from obstructions; you must also ensure that your workers know what to do and where to go in the event of a fire, as well as keeping fire extinguishers in the building in case a blaze breaks out.
Of course, installing an office fire alarm is one of the most important fire safety measures of all - here's why:
Why does my office need a fire alarm system?
A high-quality office fire alarm system will:
- Warn your entire building when a fire starts
- Speed up evacuation in the event of a fire
- Alert the emergency services right away
- Allow you to carry out regular fire drills if signalling is installed (at least 1 per quarter)
- Protect your premises from fire even when nobody's around
- Carry out weekly fire alarm tests
Of course, even if the list above doesn't convince you, there's one even more compelling reason to install a fire detection system in your office: it will ensure that you meet the requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2006.
Office Fire Alarm Requirements
Section 4 of the UK government's guide fire safety in the workplace states:
"You must have a fire detection and warning system. You may need different types of detectors, depending on the type of building and the work carried out in it."
As the excerpt suggests, every workplace must have some
kind of fire detection system in place, but the exact requirements vary depending on a range of different factors.
In order to ensure that your office fire alarm system is suitable for your business and its premises, it's a good idea to seek the help of an experienced professional. We at IDS Security Systems
