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.

What Exactly is Smart Motion Detection?

Unlike traditional motion detectors that trigger alerts for any movement, SMD intelligently distinguishes between non-threatening movements, like a tree swaying in the wind, and potential security threats, such as an unauthorized person entering a restricted area. This precision reduces false alarms, and ensures that your security team focuses on real threats.

What Types of Smart Motion Detection Are Available

As technology evolves, so does smart motion detection. Below are various versions and a description of what each brings to the table:

  • SMD+ was among the first to enhance the basic SMD by incorporating advanced algorithms capable of distinguishing between human and vehicular movement. This specificity further reduced false alarms and improved the efficiency of security monitoring.
  • SMD 3.0 built on its predecessors and introduced improved algorithms and deeper learning capabilities. These advancements allowed for even more precise detections, making it harder for intruders to slip through unnoticed.
  • SMD 4.0 is the latest iteration and offers state-of-the-art detection capabilities. This version is designed to offer unparalleled accuracy, even in environments with challenging lighting conditions or heavy pedestrian traffic.

Integrating SMD with Other Security Systems

Expanding the capabilities of your security system doesn’t have to stop with the installation of smart motion detection. Integration with other security measures can create a comprehensive defense mechanism for your business. For example, when SMD identifies a potential threat, it can automatically trigger other systems, such as door locks, lights, and alarms, to activate, thereby enhancing the deterrence factor. Coupling SMD with video analytics can provide detailed insights into the behavior and characteristics of potential intruders, improving the ability of security personnel to respond effectively. Such integrations can streamline your security operations and also leverage the full potential of your technology.

Benefits Beyond Security

While the primary function of smart motion detection is enhancing security, the benefits extend into other aspects of business operations. The intelligence gathered by SMD systems can contribute valuable data for business analytics. For instance, tracking the flow of traffic through your premises can help in optimizing layout and operational efficiency. Understanding peak times and areas of high activity can inform staffing decisions and customer service strategies. Also, the presence of a sophisticated security system with SMD can positively impact employee morale and customer perception, as it demonstrates a commitment to safety and security. This, in turn, can bolster trust in your brand and potentially drive business growth.
