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.

Bullet Cameras

Bullet cameras, characterized by their slender, cylindrical design, are a popular choice for outdoor surveillance. Their compact form factor allows for focused coverage, making them perfect for monitoring specific areas like entryways and parking lots. Equipped with protective casings, they stand resilient against harsh weather conditions, ensuring your security doesn’t falter when the elements do.

Mini Bullet Cameras

Mini bullet cameras offer similar advantages to their larger counterparts but in a more discreet package. These are great for businesses looking for unobtrusive surveillance that blends seamlessly with the environment. While they might be small, they pack a significant punch in monitoring narrow areas, such as side alleys or office corridors.

Dome Cameras

Dome cameras, with their compact, unobtrusive appearance make them an ideal choice for areas where discreet yet effective monitoring is required. These cameras are capable of covering wide areas, thanks to their 360-degree rotational ability, which allows them to survey a large expanse without any blind spots. Equipped with vandal-resistant features and often supporting night vision, dome cameras are a reliable choice for ensuring safety in diverse environments, from retail spaces to office buildings.

4G Enabled Cameras

4G cameras represent the cutting edge of remote surveillance technology. Independent of traditional internet connectivity, these cameras use cellular networks to transmit video, making them perfect for locations without wired internet access. They are particularly useful for temporary setups like event security or remote construction sites.

PTZ Cameras

Pan-tilt-zoom cameras can pan horizontally, tilt vertically, and zoom in on specific areas, allowing them to offer comprehensive coverage. Ideal for monitoring large expanses like shopping malls or public squares, PTZ cameras ensure no corner goes unseen.

Outdoor PTZ Cameras

Outdoor PTZ cameras are the rugged siblings of standard PTZ cameras, designed to withstand external elements. Their durable build and advanced features like night vision make them suitable for expansive outdoor areas requiring round-the-clock surveillance, such as parking lots and industrial compounds.

Thermal Cameras

Thermal cameras are the best choice for areas with low-light or challenging visual conditions. Unlike conventional cameras, they detect heat signatures, making them invaluable for spotting intruders in complete darkness or through obstructions like smoke and foliage.

WiFi Cameras

WiFi cameras offer ultimate flexibility and ease of installation, eliminating the need for complex wiring. Ideal for small businesses or temporary setups, these cameras can be easily repositioned to adapt to changing surveillance needs. Plus, with remote access capabilities, you can keep an eye on your premises from anywhere.

Facial Recognition Cameras

Facial recognition cameras are at the forefront of surveillance technology. By identifying individuals based on facial features, these cameras enhance security measures, especially in high-security zones like banks and airports. They're also increasingly used in retail for personalized customer experiences.
