To protect employees and customers, banks have put in place various types of measures to ensure protection against theft, aggressions and robberies. Unfortunately, the use of stand-alone mantraps, metal detectors and turnstiles for controlled access – more generally, accessible only with electronic consent – and the traditional video surveillance systems do not adequately respond to the actual security needs.
The general trend (also reflected in the private, public and industrial markets) is toward the use of a series of high-technology products based on IP technology, also integrated in existing security systems, which banks these organizations to automatically manage all their security, including video surveillance.
With regard to access control through the use of biometric recognition software systems, the cameras installed inside and/or outside access mantraps can detect the faces of the people showing up and authorize access to certain areas based on identity and access rights. These functions are supplemented by video Analytics, which automatically detects the movements of persons in the monitored area and identifies anybody who passes through a physical barrier (window, balcony, terrace, grid, door, etc.) and any abandoned bag or object.
Furthermore, additional modules consisting of field cards or supervision protocols of third-party anti-intrusion control units, access control and fire detection systems can be integrated with other devices installed in the premises of the organization (such as volumetric and seismic sensors, contacts, smoke detectors, badges, transponders, etc.) to display their status within a software platform.
These modules, equipped with a web interface, PoE power supply and DIN bar arrangement, allow to remotely control any device, thus integrating security, home automation and building automation systems in a single solution.
Through a software, the notion of ‘open platform’ allows for extreme flexibility of customization of functionalities and user interfaces, to adapt systems to every installation environment and put the needs of the bank in the foreground:
- Check of perimeters (anti-intrusion)
- Control of accesses to the facility
- Video-surveillance of indoor and outdoor areas
- Access control in higher security areas
- Intrusion control in internal areas
- Integration with IT security systems
- Fire detection and extinguishing management
