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

If you’re a home or business owner, one of the things that you would have no doubt considered is whether or not you need a security system in place and what are the pros and cons of getting one installed. Well here at IDS, we believe that there should be no doubting such thing and that in order for your home, business and valuables to be safe, installing an appropriate security solution should be one of the first things you do once moving into a new home or setting up a business. One of the most common and effective forms of protecting yourself is through the use of security cameras, so if you find yourself asking ‘do I need security cameras?’ Read on and find out why you do!

 

Advantages of Security Cameras

The security camera is one of the many wonders of modern technology, used within a home and office settings across the globe. Gaining huge popularity as an effective security solution due to the array of benefits that it offers. As with everything else in the world, they have their pitfalls but these are outnumbered massively by the advantages that they bring. We take a look at a number of these below:

Prevent Crime

The biggest and most obvious advantage of getting security cameras installed within your home or business is their ability to prevent criminal activity, or at least go some way to minimise it. Just the sight of a camera looking at them and the thought of getting caught red-handed is enough for most criminals to stop and think about breaking any sort of laws, as they know that their actions and sometimes identity will be captured. The presence of a security camera empowers you as a home and/or business owner and prevents your premises from becoming an easy target.

Gather Evidence

By placing security cameras in strategic areas, you are able to monitor both the actions and words of individuals during the occurrence of a specific event, as many modern security cameras are able to also pick up audio as well as high-quality video. Clear images alongside crisp sound make security cameras an efficient tool in gathering evidence that occurs within an important happening such as a legal scenario. Authorities are able to review the footage that a witness or person of interest may have either forgotten or missed.

Monitor Activities and Occurrences

Linked with the previous advantage of gathering evidence, security cameras have the ability to be placed in an abundance of places, meaning they are able to capture many activities that occur in and around your home or business. As they come in many shapes and sizes, they can either be placed so that they are hidden or within vantage points. Both will result in rich recording data that can keep tabs on an individual’s activities and are a great way to spot suspicious behaviour.

Correct Conclusions

The footage captured by security cameras has the ability to aid in making the correct decision if you find yourself in a dispute, whether domestic or professional. This could involve settling an argument with a family member, customer or employee. Doubts can be squashed with a simple review of what your security camera has recorded. Untrue, made-up and inappropriate claims made by members of staff, customers or others can be quickly found out with the help of a security camera.

Keeping Records

Another benefit of installing security cameras is that because they are systematically and continuously recording footage at your home or business, you always have a record of the happenings that occur at these places. If for any reason you require to review footage, you have the ability to check your records and gather the information you need.

These are just a few examples of how you can benefit from the installation of security cameras. We believe here at IDS, that whenever you ask yourself ‘should I get security cameras’, the answer should be yes, as it’s always better to be safe than sorry! We specialise in bespoke security systems for both your home and business, so no matter what you would like, we are able to provide the security solution that you need.

Security Camera Installation

If you've decided to protect your business with CCTV surveillance cameras, you may be tempted to simply buy a cheap system online and put it up in the office yourself.

However, it's a far better idea to contact a professional security installer and ask them to undertake a survey of your site - this will enable them to offer their expert opinion and recommend a CCTV system that is perfectly tailored to your requirements. They will also be able to install your new security cameras in such a way as to minimise blind spots and provide the best possible coverage of your premises.

All of the above services are available from IDS Security Systems Ltd. Based in Cardiff but serving clients throughout South Wales and beyond, we employ a team of experience security camera installers who have worked in a wide range of different business premises, including shops, offices, factories, warehouses and more. We'll send a security specialist to visit your site, conduct a full survey, and recommend the right security system for your business. We can also supply your state-of-the-art security cameras, take care of the installation, and even service them if you take out a maintenance contract with us.
