Case Study

Odeabank

To secure Odeabank's state-of-the-art premises throughout Turkey, Sensormatic Güvenlik Hizmetleri worked closely with Tyco Security Products to provide a highly integrated security solution.

Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management system provided the main integration platform for high definition CCTV cameras, DSC intrusion panels and Tyco's fire detection system. The C•CURE 9000 system also provided Odeabank with ease of reporting and the ability to seamlessly grow as the branch portfolio expanded.

Introduction
Odeabank (part of Lebanon's Bank Audi group) was established in Turkey in March 2012. To secure the bank's new state-of-the-art premises throughout Turkey, Odeabank required a highly integrated security management solution that could seamlessly grow as the branch portfolio expanded.

Solution
Systems integrator, Sensormatic Güvenlik Hizmetleri, worked closely with Odeabank and Tyco Security Products to meet these security requirements.

The overall security management system (SMS) of choice for the project was the powerful Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management system which provided an integration platform for the bank's video, intrusion and fire detection systems. To date, over 12 branches have successfully been installed with the C•CURE 9000 solution, with a total of 34 branches forecast to open by the end of 2013. Each branch utilises Software House's iSTAR Pro door controllers and third party readers to secure critical doors. iSTAR Pro door controllers are intelligent, modular, controllers that offer an access control solution for up to 16 doors. Featuring on-board Ethernet and up to 128 MB memory, the controllers store over 500,000 cardholders in its internal memory and continue to operate offline should communication be temporarily lost from the host server.

"The C•CURE 9000 Security Management System was the preferred system of choice for Odeabank as it is a highly reliable and dependable security solution that we have been installing for years. Not only is the software powerful and intuitive, but the iSTAR Pro IP door controllers are network ready and extremely easy to install. This enabled us to quickly commission six Odeabank branches within six weeks".

Systems Integration
Built on an innovative integration platform, C•CURE 9000 delivered Odeabank with integration of DSC PowerSeries intrusion panels, high definition IP video surveillance cameras and Tyco's MZX Technology® fire detection system. Using one friendly user interface (C•CURE 9000 monitoring station), Odeabank security can centrally view and manage in real-time all access control, video, fire and intrusion alarms.

Central alarm monitoring
The central C•CURE 9000 monitoring station features editable maps to create complex floor plans that graphically illustrate design and security architecture within each branch. Using a familiar Windows 7 environment, the intuitive client software enables Odeabank security personnel to create dynamic views of events, personnel activity and live video feeds. It also enables the bank to manage and view events from DSC intrusion panels and MZX Technology® fire panels from this single powerful interface. With one monitoring station managing individual branch activity, this greatly enhances operational efficiency.

The C•CURE 9000 system was also integrated with the bank's human resources system so that all branches and personnel activity can be managed and reportable from a single centre. Using a database partitioning feature, the C•CURE 9000 server is divided into multiple branch partitions. This enables bank personnel information to be shared and monitored across all branches, with employees only requiring one ID smart card to access every location. Each staff member has time restrictions, access levels and area control added to their card credentials, so that only authorised personnel have access to vaults, server rooms and other high security areas.

Reporting
Odeabank found the C•CURE 9000 Time & Attendance report extremely valuable for their operations. With HR data integrated into the access control system, Odeabank security can conveniently report on employee system activity and transactions centrally. Reports can be synchronised, with additional reports including; door access reports and inactivity card reports that can be used to initiate the deactivation of cards not used.

"We are delighted with the C•CURE 9000 security solution as it offered Odeabank high integration capabilities, powerful time & attendance reporting and the scalability to expand as branches open. We simply increased the size of the system by upgrading the software license".
