About Us >> What is Conservation? >> Preventive Conservation
  It is an integral part of a conservator's work in providing the best conditions for cultural objects to survive. Certain conditions such as intense sunlight, extreme temperatures, high humidity can cause the objects to deteriorate, so the environment is monitored and controlled to provide an optimum balance between the preservation needs of the object and the viewing and operational requirement of the visitors and museum curators. With the application of the wireless environmental monitoring system, conservators can readily collect and monitor environmental data for various museums and off-site storage 24-hour a day on real-time basis via a modem connected to the computer terminal.
