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.

Strategic Router Placement

The position of your router can have a dramatic impact on the performance of your wireless security cameras. The router is the central hub managing your surveillance streams, and its location can make or break the effectiveness of your security system. It's also worth considering the height of your router; higher placements often lead to better signal distribution. Keep the router away from devices that emit electromagnetic interference, like televisions and speakers, to avoid signal disruption. For optimal signal strength, position your router centrally and elevated. Avoid placing it near metal objects, mirrors, or thick walls, as these can obstruct the signal. Sometimes, moving your router a few feet can dramatically improve your camera's connectivity.

Combatting Signal Interference

Interference from other devices can be a major culprit in weakening your wireless security camera's signal. Regularly rebooting your router can also help in clearing out any interference issues. If possible, set your security cameras on a separate network to minimize interference from other devices. To overcome these interfering signals, consider changing the channel on your router. Most routers operate on multiple channels, and switching to a less congested one can significantly improve your camera's signal quality. Additionally, keeping your router's firmware updated ensures it operates efficiently, reducing potential interference.

Boosting Reach and Clarity

When your router's signal doesn't quite reach your camera, signal extenders can be very helpful. These devices, also known as Wi-Fi extenders or repeaters, amplify your router's signal, extending its reach to cover more area. Be mindful of the extender's placement; it should have a clear line of sight to both the router and the camera for maximum efficiency. Also, avoid placing extenders near other electronics that can interfere with the signal. This is particularly useful for large properties or areas where the router's signal is weakened by obstructions. When selecting a signal extender, ensure it's compatible with your router and security system. For best results, place the extender halfway between your router and the camera, in a location free from obstructions.

Do You Need to Upgrade Your Business Security Cameras?
