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.

Shoplifting

Not all guests come into your establishment in peace. Some are looking to fill their pockets and leave you empty-handed. Install CCTV, mirrors, and short shelves so that employees can easily monitor visitors. Consider anti-shoplifting devices and display locks for small-and-expensive products. Anti-theft signage on windows threatening full prosecution is also a great way to intimidate would-be criminals.

Employee Dishonesty

Unfortunately, your employees are not always going to be on your side. Dishonest employees can pocket money, products, and even equipment. Actively participating in your business is key. Practice proper bookkeeping, monitor transactions, and track inventory closely. If you are not able to do this physically, then consider hiring a third-party professional to audit property and monitor employees. Offering meals and discounts to employees can also deter theft and boost morale.

Robberies and Burglaries

We do not recommend playing hero when a criminal enters the business with a weapon. In the event of a robbery, we advise you give the criminal what they ask for and put your safety first. Of course, you should have cameras rolling around the clock and install height markers on doors. This way, you can help authorities identify the criminal. Signage indicating that the premises is under surveillance can help dissuade would-be criminals.
As for burglaries, or theft when the property is unoccupied, you should invest in sophisticated video surveillance. Proactive video monitoring and virtual guards are great here. More on these later.

Vandalism 

If someone takes your shoes but does not wear them or even sell them, have they stolen from you? Of course. The criminal does not have to profit in order for the crime to be considered theft. Vandalism is a serious and common crime that has serious consequences for your business’ reputation and bottom line. Again, video surveillance is important but proactive monitoring is key. You want to stop the criminals before they have a chance to destroy your property.

Get Proactive Video Monitoring and Virtual Guards

Running a profitable business is a time-consuming effort, and theft eats away at your hard work. Rather than invest your limited time on preventing theft, why not hire professionals? In fact, why not employ sophisticated technology as well? Proactive video monitoring uses advanced technology and artificial intelligence to filter out false alarms and notify virtual guards of actual threats. Virtual guards then use two-way audio to warn trespassers and command them to leave the property. Video and audio footage will be used to cooperate with local authorities upon the owner’s request. Call ArcEye Property Defense to learn more about this next-gen property protection.
