Knock Knock Children’s Museum opened on August 22, 2017 as an inclusive gathering place where families and children of all backgrounds and experiences can interact and learn through play. The 26,000-square-foot facility sits atop Knock Knock Hill overlooking City-Brooks Community Park in Baton Rouge, LA. The opening of this great museum has been very anticipated by not only the community, but also CMA.
In 2015 Cate Heroman, Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee, inquired to Ben Cherbonnier, Founder of CMA, about helping out with video surveillance. Ben knew he wanted to take part in this great project for the community of Baton Rouge. From that point on, Cherbonnier and Justin Moore, Pre-Sales Technical Architect at CMA, began serving on the technology committee for the museum. CMA became Knock Knock’s IT service provider as the grand opening approached and has been working diligently to ensure quality IT support.
CMA gave an in-kind donation of industry leading video surveillance and helpdesk assistance services to the Knock Knock Museum. With this system, they can monitor roughly 40 cameras that cover the entire museum. Each camera can be isolated and in case of an incident can be captured and saved for future playback analysis. The system has expansion possibilities and can grow its camera count internally and externally to meet the future needs of the museum.
Cherbonnier explained that this is part of CMA’s commitment to the community and he is excited to see the opportunities the Knock Knock Children’s Museum will bring to the children in the Baton Rouge community. Moore also remarked on his experience, “Working with Cate, Melissa and the rest of the Knock Knock staff has been personally and professionally rewarding, and CMA looks forward helping this project throughout its lifetime”.
