We all assume, in fact expect, a bank to be secure. The major challenge: the customers should not notice the actually highly complex security equipment. As they definitely should not have the feeling of being watched. Apart from Regiobank Solothurn being our house bank, the collaboration between the bank and Siaxma has already extended over ten years.
With the new building in Zuchwil, there was the opportunity for the first time to plan and install a totally digital system
All the branches have the video surveillance equipment which is controlled at a computer workstation at the Solothurn headquarters, where the data is analysed too. The access control was added gradually and is initially being used in Biberist and Zuchwil.
With the new building in Zuchwil, there was the opportunity for the first time to plan and install a totally digital system. This includes access control, door management, video surveillance, a burglar alarm system and alarm management – all from one source. This was one of the requirements the Regiobank specified.
Authorisation using one badge
Digital access control has one major advantage for all users: they can enter all the buildings and rooms they have authorisation for with just one badge. These badges are issued and managed at the Solothurn headquarters.
Mechanical keys have largely disappeared from everyday business at the Zuchwil and Biberist branches. The administrator can change or extend the access rights in comfort at their PC workstation.
Saves cost for additional licenses
Using their personal badge, customers can now use the lift to the basement, on their own or accompanied, and open their boxHow do customers get to their deposit boxes now? Keys are also a thing of the past here. Customers report to the desk where the bank employee then authorises them with access to the vault for one whole day. Using their personal badge, they can now use the lift to the basement, on their own or accompanied, and open their box.
So that the Regionbank does not have to release and pay for hundreds of additional licences, we manage the vault in the system like a client. This means: one license with as many users as you like.
Advantages for the end user:
- Centralised administration with customised issuing of rights by user, building, day and time frame
- One system for all locations
- Clear responsibilities
