Your Arcules Cloud Journey

We know security isn’t one-and-done.
From connecting your first camera, to scaling your hundredth site, Arcules delivers benefits throughout your entire journey.

Key Steps

Key Benefits

Planning Your Solution

A drastic reduction in hardware requirements means a easier system design. Add to that the ability to utilize your existing cameras and network infrastructure, and you have a simple plan over time – a plan that benefits integrators, installers, and IT admins equally.

Planning & System Design

Massive savings in up-front costs at every site:

  • No expensive servers for hosting data
  • Say goodbye to complex licensing fees
  • Minimal or no changes to existing networking
  • Less hands = faster work: fewer on-site visits and fewer installers

Why an open platform?

By supporting over 6,000+ camera models, we eliminate the need for a rip-and-replace and give you the flexibility to choose your own devices.

Your First Site

Adding a new site takes minutes and the only task you need to be on-site for is to plug in the Gateway. Once connected, your cameras are connected to the Arcules cloud, and everything else just works!

Initial Deployment

Deploy quickly and cost-effectively:

  • Use existing network infrastructure
  • Use existing cameras (no rip-and-replace)
  • Auto-discovery of cameras and devices

A smooth roll-out experience:

Most of our customers report setup times of less than five minutes from the time they first plug in their Gateway, to their first cloud-enabled camera.

Setup & Configuration

If you’re coming from an on-premises solution where you had to manage a server, operating system, and device drivers, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how simple it is to set up your system using Arcules.

Setup & Configuration

Simplified configuration:

  • Drivers are pre-installed on our Gateway
  • One interface to remotely manage all devices
  • Access ONVIF and many native driver advanced camera settings

Reduce time on site:

Because device configuration can be remotely managed, an installer can simply get a camera up and running, and other team members can adjust settings and configuration remotely any time.

Managing People & Roles

Once you’re ready to invite more people across an organization it’s a simple process of entering their name/email and they get an invitation to self-register. There’s no limit to the number of users or locations.

Invite & Manage Users

No complex licenses or account management:

  • No limits on how many users access the system
  • Grant access to both locations and roles
  • Control who can access which features
  • Speed up user management with User Groups
  • Simplify on-boarding with SSO integration

Not just for security:

Our customer WeWork demanded the ability to onboard hundreds of users fast. It was so efficient and easy, they were comfortable with more people outside security using the Arcules platform.

Alerts & Insights

Both cloud and edge analytics ensure timely events are delivered via a fully customizable rules engine. Let the right people know about health events or video and access control incidents fast.

Get Smart Insights

Help your teams focus on what’s important:

  • Accurately target very specific events
  • Deliver events to the right people
  • Receive SMS, email, or app push notifications
  • Set notifications to individuals or user groups

It’s all about speed:

Live video with industry-lowest latency, powerful playback search, and fast export/case management designed to help you investigate and respond fast.

Scaling it Up

Ready to Scale? Put on Your Seat Belt!

You can scale Arcules practically at the click of a button. Once you have a single site up and running, very little is needed for your next site (or the next 100+). A unified cloud platform means that just one application instance is necessary for all your sites.

Adding more sites is this simple:

  1. Add new Gateways at the locations
  2. Discover and configure new cameras
  3. Invite new teams with a few clicks
  4. Add the locations to existing rules, alerts, exports/cases
