Dahua tailors ATM DVRs for a commercial Bank in Indonesia

Jakarta, Indonesia

For a leading financial institution in Indonesia the rise and development of ATMs not only brings convenience and 24/7 service for clients, but it also reduces manpower investments; but correspondingly, ATM-based crimes are on the increase, which is putting increasingly important demands on the organisation to provide an efficient surveillance system.
One of the largest commercial banks in Indonesia located in Jakarta, is a specialist in financial services, such as insurance, credit card and checking/savings accounts. The bank currently owns more than 875 domestic branch offices and more than 6300 ATM locations all over the country.

In order to protect their existing, new and future ATMs, the bank had a particular set of requirements in addition to the continued implementation of the high standard of camera already in place, equally the back-end device, in this case, the DVR needed to be of the same high quality and significance. The particularly confined installation space and requirements for 24/7 operation inevitably meant that the DVRs to be used should be more compact in design, with excellent ventilation performance and with a reasonable cost.

As a result Dahua Technology proposed a winning solution from a totally new perspective. They would pair 4 ATM kiosks with 4 cameras and 1 DVR, which would at least save on 2/3 DVRs compared with the conventional solution, which is generally adopted in other regions.

On successfully winning the tender Dahua tailored the DH-DVR0404AS-UD for the bank. This model has 4 RS232 ports on the rear panel, and via which, data & information about the card, account, etc. and time can be extracted and added onto the display, this text overlay function helps greatly if malicious transaction attempts or disputes occur. Dahua has designed this DVR with the text overlay function embedded, making the product extremently useful in terms of forensic evidence.

In order to overcome the high temperature endurance problem, the DH-DVR0404AS-UD uses an external power-supply plus a dual-fan to enhance its ventilation performance, which can withstand a working temperature of up to 60 degrees-C.

To date 2000 DH-DVR0404AS-UD have been installed for the bank, half a year has passed by and these DVRs are still in perfect working order. According to spokesman for the bank the DVRs and Dahua's system have successfully brought out several obvious tangible and intangible benefits for the organisation. The achieved results are exactly what they were hoping for.

How to deliver adequate power to security devices in industrial sites

With security found in more and more industrial settings, advanced and heavy-duty network devices are needed on the edge to make implementations effective. Amid this trend, the first major challenge is to deliver enough power to these devices. Increasingly, traditional PoE standards, IEEE 802.3af/at that deliver 15.4W and 30W of power, are proving insufficient in this regard. A hardened 60W PoE switch, on the other hand, can better the power supply needs of industrial users.

How will Brexit affect the security industry?

As the United Kingdom starts to follow through with the necessary steps to leave the European Union (EU), there could be a number of consequences that filter through to security industry stakeholders. In theory, according to Jim Dearing of IHS Markit who has taken a look at the potential impact, in the short-term the market outlook for 2016 and 2017 should be relatively unaffected.

The U.K. has yet to activate Article 50, which instigates the formal procedure to leave the EU. Only the U.K. Prime Minister can invoke Article 50 to begin the negotiation process, which is expected to take around two years to complete.
