Art Collector Protects Investment Via RFID
Avante International is providing its AssetGuardian solution to a California businessman, enabling him to protect his personal collection even when his home's main security system is turned off.
The deployment's chief purpose was to provide greater security of the businessman's collection while staff members are inside his residence, and the main security system is thus disarmed. "Our client has many service personnel in residence on any given day, and Avante's system allows his collection to be fully armed and discretely protected while personnel work throughout the home," says John Whipple, the VP of luxury-home design and construction firm Whipple and Brewster, speaking on behalf of the businessman.
Avante provides its active RFID Zoner tags, which are attached to the artwork. The tags' installation is being undertaken according to recommendations by a professional art hanger. Avante has provided tags for several dozen art pieces. Each tag's ID number is linked to the specific artwork to which it is attached. The RFID Zoner tag includes not only a sensor that detects vibration, but also those that measure temperature, humidity and light levels, and then transmit the collected data, along with its own unique ID, to the monitors at a rate of about once per second. The monitors are typically installed every 100 feet on each floor, in order to collect enough data to pinpoint a tagged object's location within approximately 36 inches.
Avante expects to install the system at the businessman's other residences as well during the coming months. "As luxury residential developers," Whipple says, "we will suggest this RFID solution to any of our clients looking to improve their collection's security during parts of the day that the main security system must be disarmed."
