How Can You Increase Security for an ATM and Safeguard Against Theft?

We all know ATM’s are like candy to would-be thieves. However, that doesn’t mean your ATM has to be a target. People target these machines because they are small and they think they store a lot of money.

In reality, most merchant-owned free-standing ATM’s (the ones in stores) don’t contain much cash. Many store owners remove the cash each evening like a cash register.

As a store owner or ATM operator, there are certain precautions you can take to limit the chance that an ATM is stolen or broken into and increase security for an ATM.

It’s easy to add a camera monitor for your ATM machine to ensure that it puts a person at risk if they try and steal money from it. The more measures you take to secure your machine the less likely someone will attempt to steal money out of it.

5 Tips for Increasing Security

  • ATMSecurity - Surveillance Camera

    Install surveillance cameras around your ATM Machine
    • No one wants to be spotted on camera. Put one directly on top of the machine and another in a location that has a good view of the ATM. These camera systems are inexpensive and work great.
  • Hang a sign up in the area to let people know that it is under constant surveillance.
    • Thieves will think twice before making an attempt to steal from the ATM when cameras are around. Several higher-end machines come with cameras installed inside to help lower the chance of theft.  Some of the new Genmega series ATMs have surveillance deterrents pre-installed at the factory.
  • Put your ATM Machine near a brightly lit area.
    • The more lit the area where the ATM is located, the less chance someone is going to try and break into it. Make sure that the area directly above the machine and the surrounding area has the proper lighting. This will also help customers feel more at ease when completing a transaction. No one wants to withdraw cash from an ATM in an area that is dark. Added security to a machine can help protect the money inside and help draw in customers.
  • Place the machine inside your store.
    • Properly secure windows and doors to prevent people from trying to break in and remove cash each evening like a cash register.
  • Install an alarm in your store so if someone tries to get inside they will trigger it.
    • Your machine should be more secure if it is inside your business. An alarm usually makes criminals move to the next target where they don’t have alarms. Alarms are inexpensive these days and go a long way to make would-be criminals think twice about breaking into your business to steal your ATM or any other valuables inside for that matter.

ATMSecurity - Lock Your SafeProtecting your investment is just good business. You do not need someone stealing from your ATM. Make sure your installer properly secures your machine to the floor or wall. Make sure the area surrounding your establishment is well-lit, and if you own and operate your ATM machines, simply remove the cash when you close and leave the safe door open is the best security measure. If the ATM in your store is operated by someone else, most of the suggestions above deter criminal activity. A few small protective measures are all it takes to increase security for an ATM and protect your valuables.

The Future of ATMs

The Future of ATMsWill ATMs Become Obsolete?

ATMs are far from becoming obsolete, we know this to be true. These machines are evolving into devices that can complete the same type of transactions as tellers. ATMs are also turning into machines that can help a person get cash in a matter of seconds as opposed to minutes. New machines will start popping up in the next few years that will change the way you think of automated banking. Get an idea of what’s to come in the future for ATMs.

Banks are adopting ATMs that resemble tablet devices. These machines take the place of a teller and can receive your check, dispense cash, and complete most transactions a teller would handle. This allows banks to provide superior customer service by providing tellers on the bank floor to greet customers and answer any questions present. Tablet ATMs do not threaten a teller’s job; they simply allow banks to create a more welcoming atmosphere for customers.

How will these New ATMs be More Convenient?

Gaming consoles have used motion sensor technology for years and now ATMs will too. A new motion sensor machine is currently being developed. People that are wary about germs on a keypad do not have to worry any longer. These ATMs allow users to use their hands to pass motions. A number of transaction options are available at these ATMs. The current design has a woman sitting to produce a calm mood for the person using this type of ATM.

We have all experienced waiting in line to withdraw quick cash while the person in front is completing a series of transactions. The Tower is an ATM that is designed specifically to dispense cash. This machine will speed up the lines so that people do not have to wait to get cash. A user sets up a withdrawal from their cell phone and then taps the machine to get cash. These machines can help people in need of quick cash move quickly while others complete longer transactions at traditional ATMs.

Another machine designed to get you money in seconds is the cash barrel dispenser. All that is required is your debit or credit card and thumbprint. There is a selection of withdrawal options available and within seconds a user can take cash. A machine like this takes the worry out of being cautious about inputting your pin number while at an ATM. No one can learn your personalized pin with an ATM that only requires your thumbprint.

Businesses can benefit from having multiple machines available for people to complete simple or complicated transactions. The different machines allow banks to provide customers with a variety of options to choose from to complete a transaction to their liking. The ATM machines of the future have unique designs and offer solutions to make lines move faster. An investment into one of the machines of the future can prove to help make customers pleased with the selection of ATMs available.

Getting More than Just Cash from an ATM

Getting More than Just Cash from an ATM

Are ATMs Going to Become Obsolete?

ATM machines will never grow out of popularity. Cash is always going to be in demand, but the other services an ATM provides might not be necessary any longer. Most banks accept checks through your smart phone now so you do not have to go to an ATM to deposit money into your account. Instead of going to an ATM to withdraw money to pay a friend you can transfer money into their account online. So what are the things an ATM can do that you did not know about? You’d be surprised at what you may find.

  • You can collect gold from an ATM in certain places now. There are already gold dispensing ATMs in places such as Europe. Now gold dispensing ATMs are popping up all over the world. Whenever you decide that you want to invest into gold then you can go to an ATM and withdraw this metal. The machine will literally display an up to date exchange rate so that you can make a wise investment.
  •  Learn about financial opportunities when you visit an ATM. The screens have become highly advanced and now let people look at advertisements. ATM screens now show people ads that target that individual. For instance, if you have recently married, the bank might show you an ad about great home loan rates offered. This type of advertising has helped a lot of people learn about financial opportunities they did not know were present.
  • Did you know you could play the lottery on certain ATMs? As long as the state lottery commission approves it you can purchase a lottery ticket through the machine. A ticket is printed right there on the spot. You can also have your numbers sent to your phone so that you can verify whether or not you are a winner as soon as the numbers are released. Money is taken directly out of your account for the number of tickets you purchase.
  • Pay your taxes at an ATM. You will need to bring some important documents to the machine, but it is possible to pay taxes on certain ATMs. This can take a small amount of time so it is not recommended if there is a line behind you. Once your taxes are filed you can choose to pay any debt right there on the spot. Paperwork is printed and an e-receipt is given to you as proof of paying your taxes.
  • Withdraw money and reload your mobile device if you are on a pre-paid plan. Certain ATMs allow you to add more minutes or data straight from the machine. Every transaction you complete will take money directly out of your account. When you go withdraw cash you may want to add more minutes or additional data to your phone after you have seen your account balance.
  • Limit your spending by setting a limit on yourself. Some banks now allow people to set a budget to follow each week and month. The ATM will notify you of your remaining budget balance on your printed statement balance after every transaction you complete. You are not obligated to follow the budget you set. The purpose of setting a budget is to try and manage your money better so that you do not overspend. This is a good tool to use if you are trying to save money and want to closely monitor your spending habits.

The ATM has evolved to allow people to complete dozens of tasks beyond taking money. One machine that is far from being obsolete is the ATM. ATMs are continuing to expand the range of tasks you may complete at the machines. You can now even apply for loans or make a donation straight from an ATM. Businesses should take note and invest into machines that allow people a range of options to conduct at an ATM to improve the amount of potential customers.
