Knight Security Systems Selected as Security Partner for City of Arlington

The third-largest municipality in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, Arlington, TX, has selected Knight Security Systems as their primary security integrator, partner, and long-term architect for their security infrastructure overhaul.

According to Phil Lake, President and CEO at Knight Security Systems, “We are pleased to announce that The City of Arlington has chosen Knight Security Systems to provide support and administration for their citywide video surveillance system. Knight was chosen for our extensive experience with large camera deployments and our unique ability to proactively monitor their video infrastructure for problems and to quickly resolve these issues. Knight’s DFW service team will be available 24 x 7 to keep these critical systems operational.”

The overhaul is to be powered by KnightSentry, Knight’s upgraded system health monitoring solution, featuring new and enhanced software capabilities that enable partners like the City of Arlington to experience faster-than-ever resolution of system issues.

Backed by Vunetrix, Knight is committed to providing scalable benefits that alert clients to system-wide issues at any given time, including:

  • Hard-drive failure
  • System-wide power failure
  • Backup power failure
  • Video recording services
  • Critical services failure
  • Device data traffic throughput
  • Device website access
  • ...and more

“Too often security teams are unaware that a part of their security system is down or malfunctioning until it’s too late,” says Curtis Nikel, CEO of Vunetrix. “Learning that Knight Security Systems will be installing Vunetrix for The City of Arlington confirms the value that both Vunetrix and Knight contributes to municipalities both large and small.”

Knight Security Systems has secured more than 5,000 Texas businesses since 1983, from large-scale security system builds for cities, to oil rig build-outs, to schools. With a focus on honor, integrity, and service, Knight is committed to providing a wholesale security system experience from conception to completion, and beyond. To learn more about Knight, visit
