Financial Institutions

Whether you’re a top financial institution or an independent bank with fewer than 10 branches, you need a physical security system that gives you full control over video surveillance and access control as well as a global view of all your sites. Rely on Genetec IP security solutions to:

  • Identify threats
  • Reduce fraud losses
  • Close cases faster
  • Centrally manage security at every branch

With a clear migration path to IP technology, our solutions allow you to keep existing investments while benefitting from advancements in physical security systems.

Where banks used to focus on preventing and solving loss resulting from robbery or other similar crimes, today you are also concerned with fraud. In fact, loss due to fraud surpasses loss due to robbery in every way.

When it comes to closing fraud cases as quickly as possible, traditional video search methods and bandwidth can be prohibitive. Moving large amounts of data through a small network and then fast-forwarding and rewinding through raw video footage can become counterproductive. You need a solution that allows you to retrieve crucial evidence from any location quickly and painlessly to help speed up fraud investigations while keeping your employees, customers and assets secure.

Omnicast, the IP video management system (VMS) in Security Center, helps your team proactively manage risk and minimize loss. By allowing them to detect threats in real-time, instantly playback or forward video, search through video thumbnails, quickly compile and export evidence and protect evidence with advanced cyber security features, Omnicast helps your team prevent and solve both robbery and fraud cases. Watch this Omnicast video for a quick demo.

Invest in a reliable and flexible IP video system.

Secure Your Doors with Flexible IP Access Control

As part of Security Center, our unified security platform, Genetec Synergis offers real-time monitoring and investigative tools that help your security and fraud teams prevent, investigate and solve cases. It improves branch security by helping you move away from keys and allowing you to manage cardholders around the world.

Reasons Financial Institutions Choose Synergis IP Access Control

  • Ability to lock and unlock doors from the map-based interface or mobile device
  • Receive real-time info on access-denied alarms that are linked to video
  • Detect suspicious activity with access control reports
  • Set automatic door schedules for branches
  • Grant access for vaults and server rooms to specific people

Synergis gives you better control at every door. In addition, using the Security Center Federation™ feature, you can manage all of them and your alarms from one central location.

And, because Synergis is an open access control system (ACS), it allows you to preserve existing door hardware, including keypads, controllers and readers, and offers unification with industry-standard intrusion panels. These benefits make Synergis an easy and affordable way to upgrade your legacy ACS to an IP solution.

Genetec SV Network Security Appliances come pre-loaded with Security Center and offer a turnkey network video recorder (NVR) with powerful investigative features and support for a wide range of edge devices. With an SV appliance you can install your IP security system in less time, choose from an extensive list of supported devices or re-use existing hardware, grow your system one camera or door at a time, and protect your investment with a 3-year hardware warranty.

The SV-32 appliance provides standalone video surveillance or unified video and access control in one and supports up to 32 cameras and 100 readers. With it, you can keep your existing hardware investment and minimize your upgrade costs.

The SV-32 appliance allows you to decode and store both video and access control data locally at each branch. You can also send video and data back to your corporate office or a central control room using the Security Center Federation feature or our cloud-based subscription model, Federation-as-a-Service. This lets you manage all operations from a single location.

For branches or locations requiring a smaller option, the SV-16 appliance is a compact lightweight appliance that supports up to 16 cameras or readers, or 8 cameras and 8 readers in a unified configuration.

Choose the more affordable path to IP.

Monitor incoming and outgoing vehicles at vulnerable sites or larger distribution terminals.

With AutoVu, the automatic license plate recognition system of Security Center, our unified security platform, you can complement your security efforts by monitoring the traffic into your high-risk locations or distribution terminals.

As each vehicle comes onto your premises, the AutoVu Sharp ALPR cameras will scan license plates. This records a log with the license plate number, image of the vehicle, time and date stamp and associated video in the system.

In case of theft, insurance claims, or other incidents, you can conduct quick searches with varied criteria to find out what happened. Or you can generate weekly reports to ensure distribution operations are running smoothly.

You can also install ALPR cameras at your larger headquarters for license plate-enabled access control to parking lots. Automate a paperless parking management system that only allows entry to whitelisted employee license plates. In case of denied entry, you are immediately alerted, and can quickly verify video to resolve the issue.

Minimize risk with an advanced ALPR system.

Standardize on IP access control to restrict physical access to your highly critical or corporate sites.

Choosing to standardize on Synergis, the IP access control system of our unified platform Security Center, means you can manage cardholder information right alongside video.

With every swipe of a badge, you get the cardholder's picture, credentials, and actual video of the person moving through your facility. In case of access denied events, you can verify video, prompt an intercom and either unlock the door or dispatch personnel.

With Synergis, you can also install our intelligent master controller to freely choose from the latest ASSA ABLOY, HID or SALTO access control hardware. This helps ensure your investment is future-proof, and that you are not tied to any hardware devices.

Grow your system to hundreds of controllers, readers or cardholders, without limitation. And standardize on Synergis across all your sites for universal credentials and cards, and ease of central management. Also benefit from pulling reports on cardholder activity to support investigations, or using active directory integration to increase efficiency and reduce errors during cardholder enrollment.

Strengthen security with flexible IP access control.

Improve operational efficiencies by receiving all security and equipment data in one platform, while keeping property and people safe.

With Omnicast, the video surveillance system of our unified platform Security Center, you can stay one step of ahead of security breaches or theft by preprogramming alarms that alert you to suspicious activity.

Since Omnicast is an open and flexible platform, you can also tie video to other critical systems like SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition). With deep integrations, the system can notify you of equipment malfunctions or rising temperature gauges so you can immediately respond by pulling up video or dispatching personnel before the situation becomes critical.

Omnicast's IP flexibility extends into unmatched and proven system growth. With Omnicast, you can freely scale to thousands of cameras across thousands of sites. Its revolutionary features, including the Federation™ feature, also allow you to centralize the management of all remote sites, efficiently monitoring all system activity from one or two central locations.

Other features like mobile access, map-based navigation, and fault-proof redundancy help you stay connected to the information you need, from anywhere. And for smaller remote location, consider the all-in-one SV-16 network appliance for quick and easy deployment of Omnicast.

Protect your assets and community with IP video.
