  • an early warning approach to a precise measurement of an artwork or valuable item;
  • a detection system accurate to the millimetre to alert if an artwork has shifted and requires attention;
  • a tracking system to check if artwork has been moved and/or misplaced;
  • the provision of alerts if any small valuables are removed from view or an object is placed within its proximity that may cause damage;
  • an early warning smoke identification system, capable of detecting invisible smoke particles in the vicinity before risk of fire.

Security incidents are also recorded and logged for local or remote viewing.

In addition, new technology in the works at Frankentek to protect art on yachts is due to include:

  • multi-layer scanners providing pre-warning zones and a “final alert” layer close in for art hung on walls;
  • a product based on contour reference technology to detect when an artwork has been moved;
  • a setting to detect if mist is sprayed towards any artwork, of particular use at sea with the risk of sea salt mist affecting artwork on-board.
