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.

Understanding 1080p and 720p Security Cameras

The terms 1080p and 720p refer to the resolution of the camera or the clarity and detail of the video footage they capture. A 1080p camera offers a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, which means it's capable of delivering high-definition video quality that's crisp and detailed. On the other hand, 720p cameras, with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, also offer HD quality but at a slightly lower level of detail than their 1080p counterparts.

The Key Differences Between 1080p and 720p Security Cameras

When comparing 1080p to 720p security cameras, the most noticeable difference is in the image quality. With 1080p cameras, you get a higher pixel count, resulting in sharper, more detailed images. This is especially beneficial in situations where identifying small details like license plate numbers or facial features is important. Another difference is in the storage and bandwidth requirements. Higher-resolution videos from 1080p cameras consume more storage space and require more bandwidth for live streaming compared to 720p videos. This means you may need to invest in additional storage solutions or a more powerful network infrastructure to accommodate the larger file sizes. There's also the matter of cost. Generally, 1080p security cameras are more expensive than 720p cameras due to the advanced technology required to capture higher-resolution footage. However, the price gap has been narrowing, making 1080p cameras an increasingly accessible option for many.

Deciding Which Resolution Is Best for You

The choice between 1080p and 720p ultimately depends on the specific security needs, budget, and the environment you're monitoring. If you require detailed video footage for identifying individuals or vehicles, or if you're covering a large area where clarity at a distance is essential, 1080p cameras might be the better choice. They are especially suited for locations like retail stores, parking lots, and large commercial spaces. If your primary goal is general surveillance of smaller areas or if budget constraints are a big consideration, 720p cameras offer a cost-effective solution that still provides good-quality video footage. They are ideal for residential properties, small offices, or indoor spaces where the level of detail required is not as critical.
