Reply To: Surveillance Systems for Small Museums

Mark Ross


We have used a specific museum sector related surveillance system for our parks that have museum collections. It is called the Acuity system, this company and its product uses the analytics in where you can define protection zones and once those zones are breached can alert you via your I-Phone or other mobile device. Additionally the system can be used with audio to advise the person who breached the zone that they are to close to the exhibit.  Additionally Acuity’s business is 95%  museum/cultural.

You can see a demonstration of their system by going to this link:

Like I stated above I have used this company on 3 occasions, and their product works as advertised. Additionally their installers a true professionals and versed in using great care when working in a museum setting.  They do an outstanding job in hiding the wiring to the cameras, in fact in one of our installations they used brown cabling to match the wood in a mansion.


Don’t think you can not afford a system like this, you could start of small and grow the system.


If you need additional information or need any assistance you can call or e-mail me.
