Art Sentry's automated museum security system is a valuable addition to security teams at prestigious museums around the world. It warns visitors when they get too close to priceless artwork and historical objects. The system reports 75 times more touches than what guards see on their own. The technology also prevents more than 92 percent of object touches, allowing museums to save tens of thousands in maintenance and repair costs.
Our technicians work with each museum to outline an invisible, customized protected zone around selected objects or artifacts. Then the space is monitored with an advanced, camera-based motion-detection system. If visitors breach the defined zone, an audible alarm suggests that they step away – prompting them not to extend a hand to touch.
When that happens, security team members are alerted, and data is collected. The real-time notification gives the security team the opportunity to respond if necessary.
The data is used to determine whether certain items receive too many attempted touches and need a different approach to their presentation. It’s a critical system to help ensure longevity for art and antique pieces in museums, galleries, and other cultural institutions.
