For colleges and universities, CCTV systems can prove vital to overall security operations, providing a reliable system for monitoring and deterring crimes on campus, as well as safeguarding the wellbeing of staff and students.
Some of the benefits of installing a CCTV system on university or college property include:
- The protection of valuable university resources and equipment.
- Maintaining a secure environment for students and staff, by detecting suspicious behaviour or unauthorised access.
- Providing video evidence to resolve issues of criminal activity on campus.
- Deterring crimes against students.
- Enforcing the institution's policy, by ensuring that the correct guidelines for conduct and procedure are being followed.
Here at IDS, we have worked with several educational institutions in the past, including the University of Wales and Cardiff University, in order to provide advanced security systems that can be used to maintain campus security. Thanks to our experience in devising and installing CCTV networks on a large scale, we have the knowledge to provide a surveillance system that meets every individual requirement, while also providing optimal functionality to the end user.
In addition, we can also tailor our CCTV services to the scale of the project in question, in order to ensure that the solution is suitable for the level of security and versatility required for each individual environment.

Addressable fire alarms are ideal for protecting large buildings from fire. IDS Security install addressable fire protection systems across England and Wales.
Here at IDS Security Systems Ltd, we have helped countless clients to protect their businesses from fire. Our expert installers frequently carry out site visits in order to evaluate each client's requirements and recommend the best fire alarm system
Often, they judge an addressable fire alarm system to be the most suitable solution, particularly if the business in question spreads its operation across a large building.
What is an addressable fire alarm system?
An addressable fire alarm system differs from a conventional system in that every device in the system (e.g. smoke detectors, call points) has its own unique 'address'. When one of the devices is activated, its address is displayed on the system's central control panel, making it much easier for the user to identify the location of the fire and tackle it before it spreads.
Benefits of addressable fire alarms
The chief advantage of an addressable fire alarm system is the ability to immediately establish where on your premises a fire has broken out. Every second counts when a fire is burning, and knowing its location straight away will help you to minimise the damage. We especially recommend installing an addressable system if your site is very large and/or has several storeys, as is it not always immediately obvious which part of a large building might be on fire.
Interestingly, one additional benefit of using an addressable system is a reduced likelihood of false alarms. Addressable devices monitor air flow in order to stop the alarm being raised unless there really is a fire; false alarms can be disruptive and costly for companies, and many of our clients have told us that they appreciate this added safeguard.
IDS Security Systems Ltd are based in Cardiff, but we install fire protection systems across South Wales as well as in some parts of England. To arrange a site visit or request a quote for your addressable fire alarms, call 029 20 753 251 or contact us online today.
