Fortecho Luxe specifications

Fortecho provides the world’s premier wireless artwork & valuable asset monitoring solution.

Fortecho enables artworks and their locations to be monitored discretely 24/7 in real-time for theft, damage, and dangerous environmental change. Designed to be fully integrated with existing security infrastructures including CCTV, SMS, VMS, digital mobile radio and intruder detection systems.

Protection and Climate Sensors

We specialise in Active RFID technology, the most versatile and suitable tool for protecting assets in dynamic environments. Our sensors monitor for:

The Software

The Fortecho software is highly sophisticated but simple to use. The software controlling and monitoring sensors at store level is hosted by a PC in a control room. It integrates with your security and video management systems to consolidate all alarms and quicken response times. Features include:

Environment Monitoring

Designed for conservators, curators and collection managers, the environmental monitoring module is a popular extension to the core Fortecho system. Environmental monitoring provides a digital record of the exact conditions an artwork has been kept in. Over time this forms a crucial cornerstone of the artwork’s identity. Unlike traditional climate-monitoring systems, our miniature wireless sensors record temperature, relative humidity and LUX at the exact location of the artwork—on, next to, or even inside the object. Coupled with reliable protection from theft and tamper Fortecho Solution offers a holistic approach to collection management.

How do we protect your artworks?

Our tags communicate wirelessly with long-range RFID receivers. Tags are extremely versatile, but their shape, size and functionality differ depending on the intended application.

Fortecho tags attach discretely and safely onto, next to, or even inside artworks. They are completely hidden from view and are controlled remotely via the Fortecho software to minimise handling time and disruption. 

Our tags work in real-time to detect movement, damage, tamper (whether the tag has been removed from the artwork or object) and the location of the asset or personnel. As standard, tags check in every minute but send a burst of four messages a second in the event of an activation.

We also deploy PIR, VOS or laser devices fitted with our I/O wireless tags to monitor for proximity/approach. Similarly, we use pressure plinth/kit systems for sculptures and small objects where traditional tag attachment isn’t possible.

Sensors communicate wirelessly with a network of RFID Receivers or ‘Readers’ at distances of 15-70m indoors, or up to 200m outdoors. Readers create a cocoon of RFID coverage within which all assets are protected. Because tags communicate at 433 MHz, encrypted messages penetrate through most materials (including walls, floors and ceilings), allowing readers to be easily hidden inside walls, floors and furniture, though some of our clients prefer to mount them visible as a deterrent. Only a few receivers are required to cover any given space.

The FS-1000

The new FS-1000 reader detects and decodes RFID (radio frequency identification) signals from Fortecho Solutions’ range of active RFID tags.

Dual Antenna technology provides RF redundancy coverage, giving a better wireless range. This reader is ideally suited for use in systems that track and secure tagged assets such as artwork, containers, plant and machinery or high-value assets, or for monitoring personnel in health and safety or security applications. The FS-1000 readers can be used to create RFID networks within buildings. For more robust and rigorous uses, they can be deployed externally across large complexes, such as container ports, warehouses or external yards if suitably protected.
The tag data and reader status information is fed into the end-user application enabling complete management of all tagged assets and the automation of business decisions about them based on accurate and near real-time knowledge of their location and condition.

Software Interfaces

Fortecho integrates with most intruder detection, CCTV, security management (SMS) and video management (VMS) software systems as well as TETRA radios. This allows consolidated alarms, fewer screens, fewer cables, automatic activation and control of CCTV cameras, real-time object alarm information overlaying video footage, and more.

Alarms can be presented with the following information: artwork or object image, artwork or object information, location image, alarm priority, event timings, suggested action, reader information and floor map, alarm data transmitted to pagers and/or security radios and zonal tracking data.

Integrated Technologies

Physical Integration

For non-software systems, Fortecho integrates via our ADR IO boards using physical relay outputs (NC or NO). Adding a Variable Input Output Module (VIOM), it is possible to monitor the processing PC and send out an alert in case of a crash or power failure.
