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.

Step 1: Audit Your Existing Security System

You know you have a variety of security features, but we are going to have to get more detailed. The first step toward integrating your security system is auditing your existing security system. Take stock of what you have and how well the current system works. Do the surveillance cameras capture every inch of the property? Are there any gaps in communication, such as an alarm that is not programmed to contact or communicate with an agent?

Auditing your security system might take time but it should not be rushed. Refer to incidence reports and other data to make sure you get a clear picture of your existing security system.

Step 2: Determine What You Need

Now that you are certain about what your existing security system entails, and what it lacks, you can determine what you need to add. After all, times have changed since you last upgraded your security system. There are new threats and risks that must be addressed. There are also new technologies that are more effective and efficient.

Identify these potential risks and develop a ranking system by charting the risks by their potential impact and likelihood of happening. Next, find a solution for each of these potential risks. One solution CAN mitigate multiple risks.

Step 3: Put the Pieces Together

You might have noticed that you have multiple layers working, and perhaps also failing, at mitigating a single risk. Or you might have found that you have blind spots or missing pieces. With the audit complete and a chart of potential risks in mind, you can now put the pieces together. As you put those pieces together, integrate the components so there’s a seamless flow of information and response as well as a central command. These components include, but are not limited to:

  • Access Control
  • Intrusion Alarms
  • Video Surveillance
  • Audio Surveillance
  • PA System
  • Uniformed Guards

Step 4: Test Your New, Integrated System

You should be testing each component as it is installed, but also make sure to test the integrated system as a whole as well. If there is a flaw in the system, YOU should be the first to find out.
