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.

ArcEye Property Defense has been exceptional for the years we have been a customer. They are just super people to work with and always explain everything in layman terms.  They are Johnny on the spot with any problems. To bad more companies should replicate the way they operate with there customer base. They certainly have my business.

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.

Whether you want to protect physical assets or proprietary, intangible assets, a good commercial security system is the key to success. Not all commercial security systems are built the same though. In this article brought to you by ArcEye Property Defense, we will go over several elements that define the quality of a commercial security system. Feel free to call ArcEye Property Defense if you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to learn more about our virtual guards and proactive video monitoring services.

Great Coverage

When it comes to property security, you don’t want to miss a thing, which is why coverage is so important. Obviously, a handful of cameras are not going to be enough for a large property with multiple buildings. You want the cameras as well as audio input to be precise and cover every inch of your property. Professional companies offering quality commercial security systems will help you ensure that there are no blind spots and that there are multiple angles in critical points of your property.

Sensors and Alarms

There is always more than meets the eye, and sensors and alarms will help with the difference. Security guards, or virtual guards if you choose, can only do so much with their two eyes. Sensors will give guards a leg up in detecting unusual activity on the property and alarms notify the guard as well as appropriate authorities. There are a host of available sensors ranging from simple door and window contact sensors to heat sensors. A sophisticated combination of these options will yield better results.

Backup Power Systems

What good is a commercial security system if it’s powered off? Power outages are more common than we might like to think, and clever trespassers will find ways to cut off your property’s power source. This is why a backup power system is so important. A standby generator will automatically turn on in response to a power outage. Some models are outfitted with WiFi connectivity, allowing owners to monitor the generator’s status remotely.

Real-Time Communication

This might be obvious but worth noting. A lag in the system gives trespassers and criminals time to maneuver. Real-time communication, whether that’s phone-to-phone, through the internet, or via an intercom system, is a major component of successful property security. Your property’s connectivity is key here. Invest in quality communications systems and infrastructure so that your team is connected.

Access Control

We hate to say it, but you have to protect your property from everyone including your employees and "authorized" individuals. According to the US Chamber of Commerce, over 50 percent of company employees have stolen commercial property. An access control system can prevent or at least capture evidence of that sort of behavior. These systems control, monitor, and record movement in, around, and out of a commercial property. Remember, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
