Arkansas has entered the American cannabis marketplace and the state is now in the process of rolling out a Medical Marijuana program. Arkansas will be issuing licenses to medical marijuana businesses thru the states Medical Marijuana Commission and will issue up to 32 dispensary licenses and 5 cultivator licenses (with possible plans for additional applications). For Arkansas Marijuana businesses that means they will have to go thru the rigorous process of making sure their buildings are compliant with the state, and that includes making sure that their Video Security camera system is compliant as well as effective.
A quality security camera system has the ability to do more for Arkansas Medical Marijuana security than simply pass inspection, with the proper HD camera resolutions in place business owners, have the ability to track plant growth, check in on plant health, as well as keep tabs on everyday operations. With systems like the ones, we sell at Security Camera King, Inc. you can do all of this from anywhere.
Each of our systems are equipped with remote monitoring, so by simply using a mobile app, or a web browser you can login, view and control the system from anywhere; this includes viewing and monitoring multiple locations.
According to Arkansas Medical Marijuana Security section on video surveillance, marijuana facilities shall be equipped with video surveillance systems that consist of digital video cameras, with a recording system that is able to record 24 hours a day for 7 days per week. With the required storage to be maintained for 90 days. The system is required to remain operations during a power outage and must process digital archiving capabilities and on-site and off-site monitoring abilities. Each facility is required to maintain at least one on-site display monitor (with a screen size of at least 12 inches) that is to be connected to the video surveillance system at all times. All recording devices (NVR/ DVR) shall display an accurate date and time stamp on all recorded video as well as have the ability to produce a still image.
Beyond the basic CCTV equipment requirements, Arkansas medical marijuana security systems also must comply with Arkansas security camera coverage requirements. The Medical Marijuana commission states that facilities shall maintain security camera footage at all points of ingress and egress (entry and exit points) including but not limited to, windows, loading docks, skylights, doorways, and even retractable roofing. Any rooms with an exterior wall, with an exception of restrooms, will require adequate camera coverage, any room containing a safe, any area used to grow, process, manufacture, or store medical marijuana plants.

And all Access to you on site surveillance systems will be limited to trusted, authorized and documented personnel.
