All the latest security news and information, plus insights and updates from IDS Security Systems Ltd.

Combining an access control and security barrier system allows you to benefit from multiple levels of security.  Here at IDS Security Systems Ltd, we offer bespoke security packages that combine our both our access control and security barrier systems to create access control barriers that suit your exact requirements.

The Security Barriers

We install security barriers all over the country. Our customers can choose from gated systems, barrier systems, rising bollards or even turnstile systems depending on the placement and purpose of the security system. Once the security barrier is selected, a decision can then be made about the type of access system you’d like to integrate.

Choosing the right Access Control System

There’s plenty of choices when it comes to choosing the right kind of access control system for your security barriers. At IDS Security, we try to make sure we can offer our customers the most up-to-date and convenient technologies. Some of the options you can choose from include:

  • Key fob systems
  • Smart card systems
  • Intercom

These access control systems are ideal if you have the same people returning frequently, but you want to avoid any unauthorised personnel from accessing your premises. Key fobs and smart card systems are particularly effective for use with security barriers outside places of work. Intercom systems are particularly useful if you need to control the entrance of visitors.

Whichever combination of access system and barriers you require we will do our best to accommodate. Please get in touch if you want to inquire about our access control barrier systems or any of our other security systems.

 

If you run a business, whether it’s large or small, the security measures that you put into place to keep it safe from crime and other forms of disruptive activity are extremely important. Business such as offices, however, will feel the effects of poor security solutions more so than larger ones. Thefts, fires and break-ins cost organisations millions of pounds every single year, so offices would be making a wise investment to install proper and effective security measures. Here at IDS Security Systems, we offer a comprehensive range of security measures that will ensure your office is adequately protected. Take a look at the options we have for you to choose from below!

Access Control Systems

Access control systems are incredibly valuable within an office setting, as they allow access to your premises to authorised personnel only – this is a perfect option for an office that contains private and sensitive information. Access control systems come in various forms also, which makes them a great option for a range of offices. From fully computerised multi-site networks of control points to internal doors, we have the access control system best suited to your office. We utilise the latest security technologies such as biometrics and key fobs to ensure that your security system is up-to-date, offering maximum levels of safety.

CCTV Cameras

These are a simple yet very effective means of keeping your business secure and to detract criminal activity. With surveillance technology progressing massively in recent years, there is no better time to implement a network of CCTV cameras around your office. We are continuously implementing the latest developments in CCTV technology such as fibre optic transmission and digital recording to provide you with contemporary solutions that you can place your entire trust and have full confidence in.

Intruder Alarms

Intruder alarms are also a great measure when it comes to protecting businesses like offices. We are able to create a bespoke system with our state-of-the-art intruder alarms, to be installed and maintained by a team of experienced professionals. These systems are extremely effective as they are able to be monitored around-the-clock from our monitoring station, giving you peace of mind that your office can always be observed. These are particularly effective at detecting people who are not authorised to be on your premises.

Fire Alarms

With fires contributing to countless injuries and deaths every year, particularly within offices and other workplace environments, it is imperative that a proper fire safety measure such as an alarm is present within your business. It is also required by law, under Section 4 of the government’s guide to fire safety in the workplace, to have a ‘fire detection and warning system.’ The type of system depends on the building and the nature of the work that is carried out within your business. To get a better understanding of the exact fire alarm solution you need, help and advice from experts such as IDS Security Systems are available.

Each one of these security measures will go a long way to protecting your office. To make the levels of a safety for your business even greater, why not combining a number of these solutions to create one bespoke, comprehensive office security system?

Smart Card Access Control

A smart card access control system is a type of security system where each authorised individual is issued a unique smart card that gives them access to various places and/or services.

Smart card systems can be used in many different ways on all sorts of different premises. Examples include:

  • Workplaces with restricted / staff-only areas
  • Private car parks
  • Apartment buildings and other residences

Smart cards also make it easy to identify who is entering / leaving your premises. This can be useful for keeping attendance records and other administrative tasks.

How can we help you?

Here at IDS Security, we offer a range of cutting-edge access control systems including contactless smart cards as well as key fobs and biometrics.

We think that a contactless smart card access system is a great choice if you require a secure security system that has the ability to serve multiple functions (which other access systems cannot always allow for).
