Chance & Counters is a board game café that opened in the centre of Cardiff last month. Spread over three storeys in a picturesque Victorian building on High Street, Chance & Counters is home to more than 500 board games, which visitors are encouraged to try out while they sample a variety of dishes and drinks.

As one of Cardiff's leading security companies, IDS Security Systems Ltd were asked to provide a range security and fire protection solutions for the new café. Not only did we supply the cameras and alarms for Chance & Counters, we also designed the whole system and installed it ourselves. Our experienced engineers handled the job with their usual professionalism, and we are very proud to have been involved in this fantastic, unique addition to Cardiff's food and drink scene.

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.

The garage is often one part of the house that is forgotten by many homeowners when it comes to security. Research shows that homes containing no security measures are almost five times more likely to be targeted by criminals than those with the simplest of security measures. It’s not just the main living area of the home that’s at risk of break-ins, however, with burglaries involving garages incredibly common. Often the place where cars, bikes, tools and other valuables are kept. Despite this, many homeowners still choose to not properly secure their garages with sufficient security systems.
Here at IDS Security Solutions, we offer a number of high-quality security systems that provide your garage with fantastic levels of protection. These measures involve:
- Intruder Alarms – A simple but effective way to secure your garage. Our state-of-the-art intruder alarms can be specially designed, installed and maintained by us to ensure efficient levels of security. These systems can be monitored around the clock from our monitoring station, with our engineers on call every hour of every day throughout the year. Particularly effective at detecting unauthorised intruders, this is a great measure when it comes to protecting the good in your garage.

- Packages – To ensure maximum levels of security for your garage, you are able to combine our security solutions into one, bespoke package. Integrating a number of our systems such as an intruder alarm with a CCTV camera will provide you with further assurance that your garage is being properly protected with a tailored surveillance package.
