CEM Systems has secured the new Silesian Museum located in Katowice, Poland with its AC2000 Access Control and Security Management System delivered by CEM’s approved reseller Samaxon and installed by local company IB Systems & Budimex.

The new Silesian Museum houses 109,000 items from different fields of art, as well as archaeological, ethnographic and historical artefacts. The museum building, which opens in mid-2015, boasts an exhibition space that’s buried below ground with only glass tower skylight extensions visible above.

“Systems integration is an important part of the site’s overall security strategy,” explained Philip Verner, EMEA sales director at CEM Systems. “The client requires its existing intruder alarm and CCTV security solutions to work seamlessly with the access control regime.”

CEM Systems worked in parallel with Samaxon to develop a software interface between CEM AC2000 and Avigilon’s video management system, and also used the AC2000 Galaxy Dimension Interface to integrate with Honeywell’s Galaxy intrusion detection system.

The AC2000 Galaxy interface enables inputs from intruder panels to be placed as icons on the AC2000 AED application, allowing for central monitoring of both access control and intruder alarms.
