security systems for shops

Shop owners have enough to worry about without the additional stress of keeping their property, goods, staff and customers safe.

Unfortunately, security threats such as burglary, employee theft and damage to company property are common occurrences and can be extremely harmful, particularly for small businesses. That’s why a proper security system is an essential investment.

Here’s what a state-of-the-art security system can do for your shop.


What are security systems for shops?

Shops can benefit from the following security systems:


Why do shops need security systems?


Prevent theft

Regardless of what your shop sells – expensive electronics, jewellery, clothes, furniture, you name it – there are thieves out there who’ll be tempted to take what isn’t theirs.

Security systems such as CCTV cameras and intruder alarms are hugely important in preventing theft and other crimes on your premises.

CCTV cameras in particular are a big deterrent for thieves – their presence alone is often enough to prevent theft in your shop.

We recommend installing cameras in view of all key locations. These include:

  • Cash registers
  • Stock on the sales floor
  • Stock cupboards
  • Entry/exit points
  • Safes

Intruder alarms can also help to ward off burglars. If someone attempts to enter your premises, motion detectors will trigger a loud alarm/siren to draw attention to intruder and alert any passersby so that they can notify the police.


24/7 protection

Security systems such as CCTV cameras and intruder alarms also enable shop owners to monitor any suspicious goings-on in and around their property – not just while the business is open, but out of hours as well. Here at IDS, our 24hr monitoring service means that you'll be protected around the clock.


Staff management

It’s not just criminals you need to look out for. Employee theft is another big problem for shop owners.

Access control systems ensure only authorised persons have access to certain areas of your business. By placing access points on stock cupboards, safes and other company assets, you can feel confident that only vetted personnel will be able to access them.

On top of this, by including access control points on employee entry/exit doors, you can keep track of who is on the premises and when, making it a lot easier to investigate any incidents of theft, damage, etc.
