Museums contain many valuable artefacts and artworks and are generally open to the public. It is important for museums to have a high level of security to protect the valuable artefacts, as well as managing the safety and operations of the museum for the staff and visitors.
The artefacts in the museum can be of extremely high financial and cultural value. Consequently, museums are vulnerable to robberies. In addition to the artefacts, the museum itself is susceptible to vandalism and graffiti attacks. Often museum buildings have significant value to the community and the items it holds need to be very securely protected.
Why iOmniscient’s iQ-Museum?
iQ-Museum is a comprehensive portfolio of applications that that can fulfill the specific requirements for security, safety and operations, while operating as a single integrated system to ensure quick distribution of information to all concerned when any event occurs.
To prevent robberies, iQ-Museum has a perimeter protection system to stop intruders entering the premises after hours or in the restricted areas where valuables may be kept. In addition, iQ-Museum has a theft detection system which can identify missing objects instantly, even in crowded scenes.
iQ-Museum also has an accurate vandalism and graffiti detection system to immediately notify the operators of the event. iOmniscient’s many-to-many face recognition system can then be used to identify the suspect for the theft or vandalism.
Automated Surveillance Action Platform (ASAP):
iQ-Museum is armed with iOmniscient’s unique Nuisance Alarm Minimization System (NAMS) which can cope with the complex and crowded scenes that exist in the real world, thus ensuring reliable results.
