Parabit Systems, Inc., founded in 1995, counts 17 of the top 20 U.S. banks as our clients. We provide ATM lobby card access control systems that detect skimming attempts. Additionally, Parabit offers surveillance technology to enhance ATM and Bank security, from DVR Systems to specialty cameras, such as the Teller/Transaction camera, Doorway Camera, and our dual Drive-Up camera for face and license plate image capture. Alarm panels and ATM Access Control can be remotely monitored with our proprietary software, as well.
So why does Parabit, a company known for creative, innovative self-service solutions, also maintain its work in the security business? “Unfortunately, the world is not becoming a safer place,” says President and Founder Robert Leiponis. Parabit’s trusted relationships with Banks is what led to the implementation of security and self-service solutions in other industries as well. Where there is a demand, Parabit will fill the supply to make Banks, Campuses, Corporate Buildings, Educational Facilities, Healthcare Facilities/Hospitals, Retail Establishments, and Airports/Transportation Hubs safer and more secure.
In the ever changing banking security landscape, Parabit is at the forefront of keeping up with needs. The SkimGard reader, for example, is one of a kind, and has deterred and detected thousands of skimming attempts at top banks.
Other security solutions include Building Access Control, Emergency Telephones, and a Light Monitor that detects low-light conditions and sends an alert.
So the questions remains – how do Self-Service solutions improve Security?
Mechanical, Electrical, and Information Technology engineers should ensure self-service products (such as Kiosks, AVAs, and Courtesy Phones) are deployed efficiently, professionally, and provide the backbone for additional security solutions, such as cameras that record activities and transactions.
Parabit’s Self-Service solutions provide a safe, efficient, and trackable interaction for information finding, way-finding, and communication. They also enhance customer perceptions and professionalism in any environment, which leads to deterring crime. Research into criminal behavior shows that the decision to offend or not to offend is more influenced by cues to the perceived risk of being caught than by cues to reward or ease of entry.
By creating a self-service landscape that ALSO provides surveillance is an aspect of natural surveillance that is a factor to deter crimes.
