Camera Installation Considerations For ATM Surveillance

Nanjing Yuantuo Tech : 22 July, 2010  (Technical Article)
Chinese surveillance system manufacturer gives details behind achieving an effective alarm and surveillance system for bank ATM kiosks
Camera Installation Considerations For ATM Surveillance
The embedded ATM special surveillance host with an 8 inch or larger LED supports mouse operation and dual-stream technology. The system can be upgraded and is easy to extend. It uses a metal chassis and the single block supports a 2000G DVR special hard disk. The system mainly uses sensor surveillance recording supplemented by video motion detection based recording in order to guarantee that the surveillance data can be stored over a mandatory 3 month period.

The video surveillance recording clearly records the whole transaction process including the cardholder's facial features, banknote output process, environment of the ATM's frontal operation area and the whole note-issuing process.

It uses human activity detection to record both normal and exceptional transaction processes and thus avoid simple motion detection which generates excess recorded material.

A local management system is used to achieve classified search, playback, backup and management of the video recordings on the surveillance host and write the normal working situations and exceptional alarm data in the recording files.

Automatic networking continuously connects with the central management server.

The video recording search and playback feature can search the video and audio recording information according to bank card number, time, date and front-end surveillance host. It uses a special device to capture the bank card number from the ATM card reader rather than the host or network.

An electric map reflects the real alarm situation at the surveillance site. When the alarm is raised, it can automatically switch to the E-map image. The alarm location will be indicated by a blinking cursor at the monitoring station and thus the alarm location and alarm nature is clear. Customers can choose to check the actual situations of the surveillance site which means that they can see the image, monitor the voice and control the front-end surveillance device.

There is a video motion alarm, dynamic track triggering video recording, detector input alarm and lens-shielded alarm functions; it also has a vibration alarm function. When the ATM is under attack, it can record the event and raise the alarm. A blacklist alarm function is also included which can raise the local and remote network alarm to the blacklist number.

Vibration surveillance recording and alarm functions not only trigger the surveillance host recording but also record the waveform data in the dimensional-directions and event occurrence time and date at the same time. In this respect, it can present the vibration waveform amplitude for post-event analysis.

When the alarm is raised, the surveillance system can link the recording according to the operation modes to control the lights, warning signals, voice prompts and video images at various sensor locations in the bank and alert the remote surveillance centre. It also uploads the video and audio recording data to the host computer of the alarm network centre for backup and archive.

Single ATM 5-way colour video surveillance sensor:

The first sensor uses a pinhole video camera with backlight compensation. This should be installed inside the front bezel of the ATM to record customer's facial features but it should be kept away from the PIN pad area or have this area masked;

The second sensor uses a pinhole video camera with backlight compensation. This should be installed in the cabinet above the ATM to record banknote output and withdrawals

The third sensor uses a ceiling, day night, IR integrated Dome camera installed indoors. It is used to monitor and record the whole process including ATM cleaning, banknote issuing and banknote adding as well as maintenance;

The fourth and fifth sensors use ceiling, day night, IR integrated dome cameras with backlight compensation. They are installed outside the hall. They are used to monitor the environment around the ATM. The single way camera can cover a range of 90° while the two-way covers 180° panorama.
