TheMuseum of Funeral History (Houston, TX, USA) has deployed an integrated system comprised of an array of IQinVision (San Juan Capistrano, CA, USA) HD megapixel cameras and Acuity-vct (Cleveland, OH, USA) video analytics software to protect its priceless artifacts.
At present, the museum has a mix of 52 IQinVision cameras and some earlier legacy cameras. Additional IQeye cameras are on order as the museum continues to expand the areas under surveillance.
Most of the museum's exhibits are protected by Acuity-vct's motion detection software. When a protection zone drawn around an item or exhibit is broken, an alarm immediately sounds.
Most cameras are deployed inside the museum, but a small number provide surveillance around the building and for the parking lot, a move that has proved important in thwarting copper theft and helping the police investigate car break-ins.
