Integrated security platform protects science museum

Tyco Security Products : 03 October, 2013  (Application Story)
San Francisco's Exploratorium interactive museum is using unified video management and access control technologies to provide high security at the facility
Integrated security platform protects science museum

The Exploratorium, an interactive science museum and modern learning laboratory, has chosen Tyco Security Products' video and access control technologies as part of a unified security solution for its new state-of-the-art facility on San Francisco’s historic waterfront.

The system includes American Dynamics’ video management system, which provides security personnel with the ability to view, search and export video from VideoEdge NVRs as well as manage the museum’s network of Illustra IP mini-domes.  The video platform also unifies access control operations from the museum’s C CURE 9000 security and event management system, ensuring that museum security officials can centrally manage security operations of its new $220 million-dollar facility from one user interface.

“Our new, expansive facility required a flexible and scaleable system that would allow us to easily manage our public exhibits and private areas during viewing hours and off hours, as well as bring on additional sub systems and sites in the future,” said Jennifer Fragomeni, Director of Facilities and Operations, Exploratorium.

Spanning San Francisco’s historic Pier 15, the museum’s campus encompasses 330,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor space, along with a portion of Pier 17, which the Exploratorium also controls for behind-the-scenes work. Working with its consultant, Security By Design, and systems integrator, Johnson Controls, the Exploratorium’s custom plan includes 75 access control panels and 100 card readers from Software House and approximately 150 American Dynamics cameras to protect staff, visitors and museum displays.

The Exploratorium opened its new facility in April 2013.
