ABUS secures the East Frisian Tea Museum, Germany

Just a few kilometres away from the North Sea, where fresh sea breezes sweep over the brick houses, lies the East Frisian tea museum. A magnificent Renaissance building from the 16th Century, the former town hall of Norden now houses the entrance of the museum, inviting visitors to discover the world of East Frisian tea culture. The exhibitions, which include precious tea sets made from fine bone china or precious silver, require special protection against theft and vandalism. This protection is provided by a total of 31 ABUS camera domes with night vision, ensuring an overview of all the museum’s winding halls and dimly-lit areas. The richly detailed video image quality and seamless live broadcasting and recording of video material allow the staff to keep watch over everything happening in the museum so they can react accordingly if something does not seem right.
