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's the Difference Between IP and Analog Cameras

At ArcEye Property Defense, we work with businesses of all sizes and budgets to provide top-quality video surveillance. Our team enjoys helping companies achieve their security goals, and we want you to do the same. If you need to get a security system for your company, you're probably wondering about the differences between analog and IP cameras. Both types of cameras are available in a wide range of makes and models, so it can be confusing and overwhelming for many business owners. Before making a purchase, it's important to know what they are and how they work. Here are some of the most important distinctions between these two types of security cameras.

Installation Requirements

IP cameras and analog cameras have different installation needs. IP cameras use a network cable to connect to the internet and send images back to the computer, while analog cameras need cables for each different kind of signal they send. This means that installing an IP camera is much simpler and faster than alternatives.

Shared Networks

IP cameras can utilize a shared network to provide advanced surveillance and security protection. The cameras use a common connection to the internet, which allows them to communicate with each other and with a central server. This means that if one camera detects motion, it can send an alert to all other connected cameras on the network.

Remote Access

Analog cameras do not have remote access options, while IP cameras do. This is because analog cameras are connected to a monitor and a recording device, while IP cameras are connected to a transmitter that sends a signal over the internet. Remote access is important because it allows you to view live footage from your cameras from anywhere in the world.

Quality of Video

IP cameras offer much higher resolution than analog, with most models able to capture images between 1.3 and 5 megapixels. This allows the camera to zoom in more finely and see more detail even when capturing a wide area. IP cameras also provide high-definition images, allowing you to see things in greater detail and in full color, which is especially useful if you are viewing your cameras from a distance or over a long period.

Security

IP cameras are more secure than analog cameras. Analog cameras use video cables to transmit signals, which can be tapped into by unauthorized users. IP cameras, on the other hand, use Internet Protocol (IP) to send data from one device to another. This makes it much harder for hackers or cybercriminals to tap into the system and see what's going on inside your business.

Cost

On the surface, analog cameras may be more affordable than IP cameras. However, it’s important to consider other cost factors. For example, Analog cameras require a lot of extra hardware and infrastructure, including cables and hardware components. They also require a lot more work to set up and maintain than an IP camera would. This can make them more costly over time.
