How art museums can utilize two-way radios for added security

Prepare your museum security with the proper communication tools.

Prepare your museum security with the proper communication tools.

Art museums are always on high alert — or at least they should be. With millions of dollars of art and historical value at every corner, it’s necessary that security is equipped with the proper tools to prevent costly accidents. There’s little room for mistakes when dealing with our most prized cultural icons. If your museum is looking to invest in affordable, efficient communication technology, Tech Wholesale can help.

For art museums, Tech Wholesale’s medium duty two-way radios, like the Motorola CLS 1410, will get the job done and then some. When security thinks it may be dealing with a potential vandal or thief, communication and quick response is key. And perhaps just as likely, a spill or child running too close to a painting or sculpture could potentially result in damaged goods. Accidents happen, but the best thing your team can do is take all of the necessary steps to prevent the worst case scenario. Preventing damage from occurring is much easier than recovery. The right tools can keep everybody on the same page, and while a two-way radio system may be an investment, the security and peace of mind is invaluable.

The Motorola CLS1410 is a great option for museums and other security teams that want a high level of communication, with its user-friendly interface and affordability. This radio is lightweight, practical and is ready for immediate use. In addition to its indoor usage, the CLS1410 has an outdoor range of up to five miles, and it allows users to communicate clearly across as many as fifteen floors or 200,000 square feet. For museums, this is a great fit, as it features a multitude of channels to conduct business. A group of employees can be on one channel while another group of employees can talk on another channel. Don’t force employees to overhear or take part in conversations that don’t pertain to them. Have the flexibility to keep your associates in touch with their necessary colleagues.

Art lives beyond ourselves, and that’s how we should treat it — proper security is invaluable. We know the artists would appreciate the extra caution. It’s always appropriate to consider how your team could improve, whether through general security, safety or communication practices. If you have any questions, get in touch — we have a team of professionals ready and at your disposal, and we’re always happy to help and offer advice. Tech Wholesale even offers free shipping for all online orders with 2 or more CLS1410 devices.
