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.

Choose the Right Location

The right location is key to a successful video surveillance system. You’ll want to choose areas that will give you the best view of everything that’s happening in and around your business. For instance, if you have a store that has a lot of cashiers, then put cameras above the registers so that you can see what’s going on at all times. If possible, it’s best to locate your cameras near the entrances of your business. This way, you’ll be able to see when customers enter and exit, plus keep an eye on their interactions with employees and other patrons.

Use Cloud Storage

DVRs, or Digital Video Recorders, used to be the best way to store and manage your videos, but they’re not as effective anymore. They’re bulky and expensive, and they limit access to footage. Switching to cloud-based storage solutions can help you save money and ensure that you have access to all of your videos whenever you need it. Cloud storage allows you to store your videos in one place and access them from anywhere with an internet connection. You won’t need to worry about servers or hard drives breaking down, because the cloud takes care of all those problems for you.

Prioritize System Security

Hackers can break into a business’s network and steal valuable information about customers, employees, or proprietary data. They can also use the company’s resources to spread viruses or other malware. To prevent these types of attacks from happening, businesses should make sure their security systems are secure. They should also install antivirus software and firewall software on all computers in their network. The network itself should be password protected so that only authorized users can gain access. It’s also a good idea for businesses to educate their employees about cybersecurity best practices and encourage them not to open suspicious attachments in emails or click on links.

Implement Mobile Surveillance Solutions

While mounted cameras work well for most businesses, some companies have unique security needs. Mobile surveillance systems can help bridge the gap to ensure that your company stays safe from theft, vandalism and other common criminal activities. Mobile units can be beneficial for a variety of unique circumstances, including:

  • High-risk locations that are frequently targeted.
  • Locations with an unusually large square footage, such as music festivals, fairs or remote areas.
  • Sites that don’t have electrical power. Most mobile surveillance systems can run effectively on solar power.

Utilize Virtual Guards

Video monitoring services allow you to receive alerts when something suspicious happens in real time. The alerts may be sent via phone call or text message so that you can respond quickly and effectively. These services also include virtual guards who can monitor multiple cameras at once and give live updates about what’s happening on site. Best of all, using these advanced security features can help businesses save more money by lowering the cost of hiring, training and maintaining a large security staff on site.
