Security cameras are an excellent way of offering you peace of mind; the reassurance of an active security camera means you know any potential intrusions or security risks will be caught on camera. Security camera installation is arguably as important as having the security cameras in the first place; it is critical cameras are installed professionally and positioned to effectively monitor the largest area possible to provide you with the best surveillance.

Positioning

Where a camera is positioned is one of the most important parts of security camera installation - our expert engineers will be able to seek out the best position for your security camera. During the installation process, our engineers will consider the footage the camera will capture (dependant on the angle), how high up it is secured, and whether it is displayed discreetly or obviously. We are happy to work to your specific needs when installing your security camera(s), so whether you want your camera somewhere obvious, as a deterrent, or somewhere less obvious - IDS can meet your needs.

Here at IDS we know our security cameras inside out (literally), so when handling a security camera installation we can worry about all the technical stuff, so you don't have to! IDS will handle the wiring of your camera(s) and expertly select the most logical power source for your security system. We'll think about your local area network (LAN) and give you suggestions on what we think is best. With an IDS security camera installation, you can rest assured your security is in good hands.

Fully integrated security systems

Many business owners focus only on things like profits, productivity, and keeping ahead of the competition. This is understandable - time is money, after all - but it does mean that the crucial matter of security sometimes falls by the wayside.

Business security is a multifaceted, potentially complex issue to which some turn a blind eye until it's too late. A simple solution sometimes isn't enough - a single CCTV camera or burglar alarm can't protect your business as well as a fully-integrated system that combines a number of different security products into the perfect solution for your business.

What is an integrated security system?

An integrated security system takes a number of different security systems and merges them into one comprehensive solution that may include any combination of the following:

Why do you need an integrated security system?

So what are the specific benefits and advantages that come from utilising a fully-integrated security system? Here are a few examples:

  • Improved Productivity - An integrated system can help to boost the productivity levels of your employees, with increased monitoring having a positive impact on customer satisfaction and employee performance.

  • Conflict Resolution - A multifaceted security system makes it easier to monitor actions taken in the workplace, leading to improved conflict resolution if necessary.

  • Centralisation - With the implementation of an integrated security system, your company's security will become more centralised rather than having to report to different areas. This saves management time and allows the business to be more organised.

  • Theft Deterrence - Theft is an ever-present fear for all business owners. A good security system can be tailored to the needs of your operation, minimising the risk of burglary.

  • Real-Time Monitoring - With an integrated security system, businesses are able to see the activities of their premises instantly whenever needed through the use of computers, smartphones and/or tablets.

Fire safety is a very important subject - it truly is a matter of life and death. Homes and commercial premises both require certain measures to ensure that, in the event of a fire, the dangers to human life are kept to a minimum.

We specialise in fire protection systems here at IDS, but how much do you know about fire safety? Read our infographic to make sure you understand how to make your property safe:

Infographic Transcript

Research shows that buildings burn faster now than ever before:

  • 30 years ago you would have approximately 17 minutes to escape a house fire
  • Nowadays you can have less than 5!

Fire exit: Always know where public fire exits are and the safest way to evacuate your house if there is a fire.

Make sure you have a fire alarm installed and test the ones you do have.

2/3 fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke or fire alarms or have alarms that don't work.

Fire alarms should be tested once a month and have their batteries changed once a year

Be sure to take all the correct safety precautions by installing the right fire alarm!

You should have a smoke alarm on every floor of your home.
