Existo & VIVOTEK Provide Security Solutions For Michigan Cannabis Cultivation Facility


Security for your cannabis facility plays a major role in cannabis business compliance in Michigan. The Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) has stringent requirements when it comes to security camera coverage and data storage at cannabis facilities. Access control, loss prevention, fire, and alarm systems are also part of the Michigan MRA Security Requirements. Cannabis compliance experts can implement a Security Plan at your facility to meet these requirements for licensing.

Security And Cannabis Compliance Go Hand In Hand

Michigan MRA requires all licensed cannabis businesses to participate in a tracking system designed to provide transparency in the supply chain. To fulfill this requirement, Michigan MRA has chosen Metrc to provide seed-to-sale tracking of all cannabis products. Security and surveillance is another tool that can be used to monitor inventory. A robust Security Plan can help deter theft and loss of product.

Flawless Security Planning For Cultivation Facilities

Existo recently executed a flawless Security Plan for a new cultivation facility in Northern Michigan, Freedom Green. Freedom Green is a 45,000 sq ft facility that focuses on sustainable, high quality cannabis for medical and recreational use. This facility has six different rooms used to grow and harvest quality controlled cannabis. 

After inspecting the building, we quickly got to work developing a Security Plan to protect the facility and satisfy the MRA security requirements. The MRA requires cameras that can capture clear images of people and activities, at all times. This goes for both inside and outside the facility. 

Grow facilities offer a unique challenge when it comes to security camera surveillance. With varying climates inside grow rooms as well as areas with low lighting, Existo was faced with designing a security camera layout that could be implemented in the facility while satisfying the MRA requirements.


For this project, Existo teamed up with VIVOTEK to establish proper security monitoring of this cultivation facility. As the leading brand in global security surveillance, VIVOTEK offers a variety of high quality products to choose from. In order to cover all areas inside and outside the facility, A total of 70 cameras were used. Each camera was carefully selected for all areas of this facility.

NTEP Scale for Cannabis Industry
Cannabis RetailCannabis Technology

Are Your Scales NTEP Certified?

Cannabis is a product that has been bought and sold by weight since before it was legalized. Prior to legalization, cannabis was bought and sold using scales with pretty questionable accuracy. When sold in small amounts, it might not make a difference to a seller’s bottom line. However, with legalization and expansion of the retail cannabis industry, accuracy and precision in scales used for commercial transactions are imperative. By using NTEP Certified scales, you can ensure that every transaction is precise.

Business Communication Solutions for the Cannabis Industry

Nationwide social distancing orders have changed the way that just about all retail stores do business. The cannabis industry is no exception. In order to keep up with the demand for curbside and delivery services, cannabis provisioning centers must have the right technical infrastructure in place. Initially, as statewide stay-at-home orders were implemented, many retail cannabis businesses had to quickly improvise to adapt to the changing environment in order to keep operations running. As we are starting to see, things are not going back to “normal.” Instead, we’re starting to see a new normal. Things that were meant to be temporary fixes will no longer work now that there will be new regulations and mandates to follow.
