The original Telus World of Science closed in early 2011 to make room for expansion. It was renamed Telus Spark and is a science museum with interactive exhibits, multimedia presentations and educational demonstrations in Calgary, Alberta. The challenge was ensuring the exterior of the building was secure against vandalism and the contents of the building remained protected. Genesis Integration also provided a migration path for the customer today and moving forward by utilizing an open platform solution.
Genesis utilized Genetec Security Centre which was able to combine intrusion and access control systems with Closed Circuit Television as a unified platform to allow the end user one single system to monitor the facility.
Telus Spark now has a new state of the art building that they call home. Their ability to easily monitor and control their facility has exceeded their expectations. The client feels secure knowing the large open spaces can be monitored and both visitors and exhibits are protected at all times.
