Financial institutions face many challenges in today's economic climate. The ability
to protect customers, staff, assets and premises is as important to a bank as providing
customers with a more open 'self service' style of banking, but this can leave staff
more vulnerable to physical attack.
Common issues associated with multisite financial institutions include monitoring
high risk areas, customer and staff safety and managing restricted access. All these
challenges however can be met with an integrated solution from Tyco Security Products.
Monitoring High Risk Areas
With ATMs requiring regular replenishment and the self service style 'fast drop'
facilities needing emptying, the risk of security issues from robberies, muggings,
forced withdrawals and even ram raids is increased. Our integrated solution can
be configured to respond to movement with a cameras field of view which in turn
is recorded via the digital video recorder. An alarm is activated and displayed
live on the Tyco access control system enabling the operator to respond in an appropriate
manner. Having this video footage as evidence can greatly increase the chance of
recovering stolen cash.
With the move to reducing physical barriers in branches, electronic security can
help make it more difficult for unauthorized personnel to gain access to restricted
areas. Using our access control badging software each employee can be issued one
ID/access card which eliminates the need for multiple cards for multiple sites,
thus reducing time and cost. This one card grants them access depending on their
security level, for example to offices but not to safety deposit box rooms.
Customer and Staff Safety
The ever present and worrying threat to staff and customers is of violence from
bank raids, ATM muggings, forced cash withdrawals and even ram raids. Having cameras
positioned effectively and recording high quality images is an essential deterrent.
It gives peace of mind knowing that any incidents will be seen on cameras and then
recorded onto the Video Management System. Video clips can be quickly exported to
DVD/USB for any ensuing police investigation.
With an integrated solution from Tyco International we can provide a proven application
for your unique Financial and Banking requirements.
