Evolving Bank Security: Easy and Effective IP Surveillance Solutions for Banking and Finance

Stay Ahead of Evolving Crime

The world of banking is changing. Not only are criminals finding new and clever ways of conducting their crime, but financial institutions are also facing stronger demands for cost-efficiency and compliance in day-to-day work. Banks have many security challenges, with particularly ATM crimes on the rise. The best surveillance solutions deter criminals, prevent crime and, if worse comes to worst, can be used in identification.

Leading the Way in Network Video Surveillance

Axis, the world leader in network video surveillance, offers a full range of IP surveillance solutions for the banking and finance markets. Our solutions meet new security challenges and deliver excellent HDTV image quality while being compliant with corporate and government legislation for the security and safety of staff and customers. With our solutions, you can stay ahead of evolving crime and make banking safer today and tomorrow.

Expertise in Network Video Solutions

Axis has long experience in network video solutions, driving the transition from analog to digital. IP surveillance is our core, and we understand the challenges, security issues, and possibilities when incorporating network video into the banking world.

Partner for a Future-Proof System

With Axis’ solutions, you can be sure to get an open and flexible platform that can be integrated into existing analog equipment and CCTV installations step by step as needed. Axis’ open system also allows you to add functionality later on, from encoders and cameras to proactive security measures and video intelligence.

Refine Forensic Results

With Axis’ cameras, you can have crystal-clear HDTV quality images, which allow you to see details and identify people faster. Our offer includes cameras for difficult lighting conditions and almost complete darkness, ensuring you always have the best image quality possible. Centralized management of video surveillance with Axis’ cameras makes images easily accessible and deliverable safely and quickly to the police.

Improve Operational Efficiency

It is possible to integrate Axis’ surveillance solutions with alarm and access control systems for a complete and efficient security platform. By having remote access and the possibility for central management, alarms can be visually verified. This means that unnecessary call-outs can be avoided, and costs for false alarms can be reduced.

Fight Crime Proactively

Axis’ cameras can come equipped with smart capabilities, such as video motion detection, audio detection, and anti-tampering alarms, and the installable application cross-line detection. When provoked, the cameras set off an alert at the centralized monitoring room or on a smartphone, so appropriate action can be taken. Axis’ cameras can be fitted with video intelligence such as license plate recognition, face recognition, and loitering. These may be used for both preventive and investigative purposes, giving you all the means to fight crime proactively.

Enhance the Customer Experience

Together with our software partners, we can offer a range of intelligent video applications for our cameras. These include people counting, queue management, and identifying VIP customers—features that can help you be proactive in managing busy hours and the number of open tills, enhancing the customer experience at your branch.

Comprehensive Solutions for Every Banking Situation

At Axis, we have the complete range of products needed to deter criminals and get excellent image quality from cameras placed in branch offices, ATMs, and corporate financial buildings. Ultimately, it’s about improving safety for your customers and employees and ensuring you have the cameras that capture the images you need.

Branch Offices: Every Angle and Corner Covered

There are many angles you need to cover in a branch office, from overviews of the waiting areas and ATM vestibule to images over the tellers, recycling area, and vault, to close-up face images at the entrance and exit. In places with challenging lighting conditions, such as large windows and entrances with glass doors and shiny floors, Axis offers wide dynamic range (WDR) cameras. These cameras adapt to changing lighting conditions and strong backlight to always deliver clear HDTV images.

ATMs: Concealed Installations Catch the Criminal

As the number of ATMs increases with growing cash volumes being handled, criminals see their chance. ATM crimes are on the rise along with new types of criminal behavior such as card skimming, cash or card trapping, transaction reversal fraud, shoulder surfing, vandalism, robberies, loitering, ram raids, and gas explosions. To meet these important ATM security challenges, Axis offers a combination of built-in and external cameras. Covert installations include pinhole HDTV cameras for ATMs, providing close-up face images for identification. Footage can be recorded and stored cost-effectively using a built-in SD card or standard NAS.

Corporate Buildings: Efficient Solutions for All Lighting Conditions

For efficient building surveillance, we offer both indoor and outdoor solutions to cover the reception area, corridors, parking lot, and building perimeter. Our different solutions for these areas can be integrated with access control and intrusion alarms. One challenge when surveilling corporate financial buildings is the varied lighting conditions that need to be dealt with. Axis’ Lightfinder technology is particularly suitable in areas with low light, such as dark corridors and rooms where the light is turned off. Thanks to Lightfinder, you can still get excellent color images in poorly lit situations.
