What Our Customers Say

Megapixel Imaging... Worth a Thousand Words

We’ve been successful because our customers value Arecont Vision® products and our market leadership.

Arecont Vision has delivered over 3.5 trillion pixels from our cameras sold around the world since our journey began in 2003. We hold over a dozen patents for our industry-leading technology, which helps account for the many industry firsts we continue to deliver.

What Our Customers Say Matters the Most

“With the valet service, customers will come in and claim that marks on their vehicle weren’t there when they arrived, and quite honestly, they may believe that’s true.

With the Arecont Vision cameras, we’re able to look at the video and say with confidence whether the mark was there when he or she arrived at the hotel.”

-Kevin Miller, Corporate Director of Security for the Davenport Collection of Properties, Spokane, WA

“We conducted a vigorous study of Arecont Vision Costar and other suppliers. We found Arecont Vision’s backend delivery and logistics in complying with our requirements to be far superior than others.

Furthermore, we received references from other local businesses such as other Marriott hotels and Al Nabooda Automobiles for their Audi and Porsche showrooms and service centers.”

-Aditya Rajaram, Managing Director of Radar Holdings, owner, Aloft Hotel Dubai South, UAE

“One of the things that has been of benefit to me is in the way of product offerings, with the new RS series of cameras, particularly the SurroundVideo Omni G3’s. Being able to aim and focus those multi-element cameras remotely has reduced installation time and allows me to make adjustments to field of view remotely without having to go on-site. Anything that reduces ‘ladder time’ impacts my business in a good way.”

-Bernie Greer, Manager, Applied Digital Technologies, Charlottesville, VA

“I had a large school project with about 500 cameras in the beginning of 2019, and two cameras failed shortly after setup. I was really happy that without a fuss, Arecont Vision Costar stepped up and gave us a bunch of spare cameras.

They said ‘If you have this issue again, go get one & hang it up and see what’s going on.’ That made the customer and I feel really good.”

-Don Olson, Owner, Audio Innovations, Fresno, CA

“I have had to hold some pictures for the Chicago Police Department, and they cannot believe how good the [video from the] cameras looks.

I’m very, very happy with the product.”

-Jim Bayci, 7-11 Franchisee, Chicago, IL

“If we’re going to build a new surveillance system, we need to make sure that if we have an incident, we can actually see who was involved.

We wanted an innately high-quality, flexible solution, and we got it with Arecont Vision.”

-Kevin Miller, Corporate Director of Security for the Davenport Collection of Properties, Spokane, WA

“Simplified installation features such as remote focus, along with advanced features such as true WDR (wide dynamic range) were key factors in the decision.

Additionally, the SurroundVideo camera series’ cost effectiveness and coverage capabilities placed Arecont Vision ahead of its competitors for the job.”

-Mike Bales, COO, WW Communications, Mankato, MN

“The overall feedback we received from our reference checks was that the Arecont Vision Costar cameras are highly reliable, stable, and with high quality, and that product support and service was very superior.

Those are all things we required for the hotel.”

-Aditya Rajaram, Managing Director of Radar Holdings, owner, Aloft Hotel Dubai South, UAE

“The new Arecont Vision Costar doesn’t play the ‘blame game’ when you contact them. When you need an RMA, you tell them what’s going on and the response has been ‘OK, we’ll take care of it.'

It seems like whoever I talk to they’re saying ‘Let’s get get this taken care of right now.’ It’s not a 3 phone call or 3-email kind of thing.”

-Don Olson, Owner, Audio Innovations, Fresno, CA.

“I’ve got a downtown urban location with a lot of windows in it. I was looking to upgrade the system to get better resolution on the cameras.

The Contera system has just been a marvel as far as the color quality and the resolution that I’m able to get.”

-Jim Bayci, 7-11 Franchisee, Chicago, IL

“We certainly didn't want to give people the feeling that they're being watched throughout the hotel.

We really like how the low profile of the cameras and the multi-sensor capabilities enabled us to use just one camera opposed to four separate ones.”

-Kevin Miller, Corporate Director of Security for the Davenport Collection of Properties

“They [Arecont Vision cameras] are small and nearly invisible to anyone who doesn’t know what they’re looking for. The fact that they have such a small footprint makes them ideal for us in the ticketing and front entrance areas.”

-Thomas Uretsky, Director of Security and Emergency Management, Monterey Bay Aquarium, CA

“We were sure to go back to Arecont Vision during this process. We have had a good working relationship with them for the past five years, and they enable us to use less cameras while still maintaining full view of inspection areas.”

-Paul Mueller, Security Manager, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Manchester, NH

“ The customer and our company are very satisfied and very happy with the quality of the equipment. For this project, installation went very smoothly. Arecont Vision provided superior image quality and a user-friendly interface. ”

- Nick Melnyk, of Ficek Electric and Communication Systems, Inc.

“ The school district was so pleased with Arecont Vision products that they are now looking to put additions to the surveillance systems on most of the campuses. We are very satisfied with everything we have received from Arecont Vision. ”

- Nick Melnyk, of Ficek Electric and Communication Systems, Inc.

“We had a burst pipe in the lobby during construction, and the Arecont Vision Costar cameras were able to help us identify the exact source and timeline of the leak due to the quality and clarity of the video. We had another incident where a delivery truck struck one of our pylons. The camera was able to very clearly catch the damage and identify even very minor details of the number plate and driver in order to file the necessary loss prevention complaint. We were very satisfied with the outcome that the cameras were able to deliver.”

-Aditya Rajaram, Managing Director of Radar Holdings, owner, Aloft Hotel Dubai South, UAE

“What’s really nice is we can actually view the cameras from several different locations in real-time or in playback These cameras help reduce our on-floor manpower and increase our effectiveness because there can be one person on the floor and another person who is watching the cameras, who can cover 10 times more area than one person can on foot.”

-Kevin Miller, Corporate Director of Security for the Davenport Collection of Properties, Spokane, WA

“The SurroundVideo Omni cameras are some of our favorites because we are getting four cameras in one. They have the most flexibility. Our blind spots are much more limited, and we don’t need to use nearly as many cameras as we previously had in those areas.”

-Kevin Wright, Security Manager, Monterey Bay Aquarium, CA

“A variety of factors led to the use of Arecont Vision, not least of which was the commitment and quality they provide as an American-based manufacturer. They are one of the few vendors who design and build cameras in the U.S., and their cameras’ features and reliability reflect that.”

-Mike Bales, COO, WW Communications, Mankato, MN

“Every other day we use the cameras to investigate criminal or worker concerns. We go back and monitor them for possible safety issues on the ramps, for passenger interaction, and for worker interactions. Anytime someone expresses a concern to me, they can come in and we can watch the footage together. I try to make sure that the option to view footage is fairly transparent, which has proved very useful to everyone.”

-Paul Mueller, Security Manager, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Manchester, NH

- Mike Bales, COO, WW Communications.

“ No other camera manufacturer could compete with the price and performance of the Arecont Vision Omni series. As a result, no other surveillance camera manufacturers were recommended by Digicom, Inc. or would be able to so effectively cover the 15 acres of new and used vehicle display, public access, and vehicle service areas at the new Dahl Auto Plaza. ”

- Russ Neitzke, Digicom, Inc.

“ Basically, the coverage that you get with the SurroundVideo Omni is really like buying four cameras in one. Being able to effectively cover Dahl’s range of campus requirements with fewer cameras and lower purchase, installation, and operational costs meant that Arecont Vision has hit all the required marks for this project. ”

- Russ Neitzke, Digicom, Inc.

“I approached Sanjit for his Arecont Vision cameras for a very specific purpose. I had a construction site, and I needed a camera that could capture the construction process seamlessly and clearly. Other vendors were quoting me exorbitant prices with over-spec’d cameras.”
