Had some upgrades made to my virtual guard system. As always with ArcEye, great, fast customer service. The technician who installed the system was friendly but all business - got it done pretty fast, then patiently explained the features and helped me set up the app for remote control of the system. Would highly recommend ArcEye Property Defense to anyone who needs a commercial proactive video monitoring service.

I have relied on ArcEye for my security needs for years now. I have yet to meet an employee who was anything but friendly, respectful and competent. That’s rare these days! I have property security protection, along with cameras now. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Owned an older ArcEye system that needed to be updated and moved to a new location. From the POS to installation everything went VERY well. The technician Austin went over and above to the system was moved to our newly needed location. He was maliciously clean in his work and was very patient with our questions. I highly recommend ArcEye Property Defense.

The Basics of 4G Security Cameras

4G cameras have been the backbone of wireless security systems for some time. These cameras connect to the internet via 4G LTE networks, offering reliable and widespread coverage. Ideal for areas without easy access to traditional Wi-Fi, they provide flexibility in placement and are generally easy to install. 4G cameras are known for their stable connection, ensuring that your surveillance feed remains uninterrupted even in challenging environments. However, it's important to consider the data consumption and potential latency issues that might arise with 4G cameras. They can consume significant data, especially when streaming high-quality video, leading to additional costs. While the connection is stable, it may not always be the fastest, particularly in areas with limited 4G coverage or during peak usage times.

Stepping into the Future with 5G Cameras

5G offers the latest and fastest wireless communication technology. 5G cameras are on the cutting edge, offering lightning-fast data transfer speeds and reduced latency. This means smoother, higher-quality video streaming and the ability to handle more data-intensive tasks like facial recognition and real-time analytics. They are particularly advantageous in scenarios where immediate response and high-definition video quality are non-negotiable. However, the availability of 5G networks is still growing, and these cameras may be overkill for simpler surveillance needs. They also tend to be more expensive, both in terms of initial investment and ongoing data costs. For those in areas with quality 5G coverage who require high-quality surveillance, the investment in a 5G camera system is well worth it.

Finding the Best Fit for Your Security Needs

Several factors come into play when deciding between a 4G and 5G security camera. To determine the best course of action, it's important to evaluate your individual requirements and circumstances. For businesses operating in remote locations or those looking for a cost-effective, reliable solution, 4G cameras are an excellent choice. They offer the flexibility and stability needed for many standard surveillance scenarios. On the other hand, if your premises are in a 5G-ready area and you require high-speed, high-quality surveillance with advanced features, a 5G camera system is the way to go. They are especially suitable for high-security areas, large-scale operations, or facilities that require sophisticated surveillance.

Are You Looking for Reliable Business Security Camera Installers?

Have you decided it's time to upgrade with a new commercial security camera installation? While 4G cameras offer reliability and broader coverage, 5G cameras bring unparalleled speed and advanced capabilities. At ArcEye Property Defense, we're here to provide tailored solutions that work best for your unique security needs. Contact our office for more information or to schedule a convenient appointment with qualified business security camera installers in your community.
