June 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Vancouver, BC  – GalleryGuard has formally launched its state-of-the-art, fine art security system.  Its goal is to make available museum-grade security technologies at a price that all types of art collectors can afford.

“Stolen artwork is a $6 billion dollar a year problem, and in many cases art thefts could be prevented if people had more effective security systems," says Kevin Ridinger, product manager at GalleryGuard.  "We wanted to enable people at all levels in the art world to have the same ‘item-level’ monitoring and protection that museums with large security budgets use.  In doing so, we knew we had to produce a product that was highly effective, affordable, easy to use, and did not require technicians or installation teams.  With GalleryGuard, we succeeded in all four areas, added some extras like remote phone and email alerts and completely eliminated monthly monitoring fees.”  

GalleryGuard uses small, battery powered, motion detectors that attach to almost any piece of artwork and transmit a signal when that specific piece of artwork is moved.  The main system receives the signal and then determines if the movement is suspicious or incidental.  If it is suspicious, it triggers a siren, screen alert, and seconds later notifies a list of people via phone (text/sms) or email.

“The best part about GalleryGuard is that you never have to turn it off.  Because each piece is monitored individually, people can move in and around the artwork while the system is armed.  For commercial galleries and public museums, this enables GalleryGuard to be equally effective both inside and outside of business hours; and for private collectors, eliminates the need to enable/disable the security system on a daily basis, share security passcodes, or leave the premises unprotected when guests or support staff are present. “

Current pricing starts below $8,000 US per system.
