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

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:

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.

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.
