“CAI Vision were chosen to provide the security for the De Beers Diamond Collection. Their professionalism ensured that the installation created the minimum of disruption to the museum”.

From the Evening Standard

“The Natural History Museum has had to invest in no fewer than seven layers of security, in addition to the normal alarms and patrols. The room through which the public will wander is equipped so that all those entering are automatically recorded on camera, while the gems are protected with beam, pressure and sonic glass-breaking alarms, together with other devices the museum won’t divulge.”
