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.

Challenges of Using Consumer-Grade Cameras

While it's tempting to go for off-the-shelf cameras to protect your assets, this approach often leads to more headaches than solutions. At ArcEye Property Defense, we offer professional commercial security camera installation and understand why it's important to use quality equipment. Keep reading to find out why consumer-grade devices might not be your best bet.

What's the Difference?

At first glance, consumer cameras that are readily available at your local electronics store seem like a budget-friendly security solution. They promise easy DIY installation and the convenience of monitoring your premises through a smartphone app. However, the devil is in the details, and what initially appears as a cost-effective measure can quickly reveal its limitations in the demanding environment of commercial security.

The Shortcomings of Consumer-Grade Security Cameras

First and foremost, these devices often fall short in durability. Designed for the average homeowner, they aren't built to withstand the rigorous conditions often found in commercial settings, such as extreme weather or prolonged exposure to the elements. The image quality and field of view offered by consumer cameras might suffice for monitoring a small room but become inadequate over larger commercial spaces. This leads to serious blind spots, putting your property at risk. These cameras also frequently lack the advanced features necessary for effective security, such as motion detection accuracy, night vision capabilities, and secure data storage options, making them a less reliable choice for protecting your business assets.

Why Professional-Grade Security Systems Are Worth It

Professional-grade security systems are designed with the complexities of commercial security in mind. These systems have superior durability, enhanced image quality, and a variety of innovative features that meet the specific needs of modern businesses. From advanced motion sensors that minimize false alarms to powerful encryption to protect your data, professional security systems offer comprehensive solutions that consumer-grade cameras simply cannot match.

Advantages That Speak Volumes

Choosing a professional-grade system comes with many great benefits. These systems are scalable, allowing for easy expansion as your business grows or your security needs evolve. They also offer integrated solutions, meaning you can connect various security components, like cameras, access control, and alarms, into a single, manageable network. This integration improves the effectiveness of your security strategy, ensuring a cohesive and responsive system.

Choosing the best cameras is an important part of protecting your company, but so it's selecting the right business security camera installers. At ArcEye Property Defense, we offer professional services and reliable advice on the best security solutions for your specific needs.
