Are you facing difficulty with hiring and retaining security staff which negatively impacts your ability to protect your collection? Are you feeling the pain of museum security staff reductions? Art Sentry’s technology is being used as a force multiplier to fill this security gap. With fewer guards needed to protect the collection, the expense of the system is quickly offset by the cost savings it generates.
Many museums and cultural properties have found that the Art Sentry system enables their guards to cover up to 3-times more galleries. The system features invisible protection zones that can be custom-drawn around each individual object or area. This always-on, object-level protection, augments your security staff and ensures that your priceless treasures are fully guarded at all times.
“The System is like having multiple guards in the gallery at once.”
Tim Main, Security Officer at the Detroit Institute of Art
“In an ideal world, I wish that we could have one or more guards in each gallery.
But since that is not financially possible, Art Sentry’s solution is our very best option.”
Dr. Lou Zona, Executive Director of the Butler Institute of American Art

Data drives improved efficiency
Valuable data from Art Sentry can be used to make museum security staff more efficient and effective. It can be used to modify security guard deployments, allowing them to focus on securing the areas that need the most attention.
“The [Art Sentry] System has added several dimensions as to how we approach protection services…it’s changed the way we deploy our resources and the tactics we use."
Eric Drewry, Director of Protection Services-Detroit Institute of Art.
Time-consuming reporting can also be reduced. Art Sentry automatically compiles data from each infraction. The data is then summarized in reports which highlight issues that need attention and can be used to develop continual protection improvement strategies.
Both large and small museums have implemented our proven technology, which is already deployed in over 25% of America’s top museums.
