Mental Health and Well-Being

Tips on How Support Your Mental Health and Well-Being

  • Take a walk and reflect on what you see and hear at least several times per week.
  • Try something new and often (eat a new food, try a different route to work, go to a new museum display).
  • Do some mind exercises (read, do a puzzle occasionally during the week).
  • Try to focus on a process intensely and complete a segment of it over 1 to several hours, then take a break and do something relaxing (walk, exercise, short nap).
  • Plan to spend some time talking with other people about different subjects.

Banks and financial institutions are no outsiders to biometric technology like the Biometric Access Vault Management System, yet they’re indicating new enthusiasm for this innovation, in light of current circumstances. Passwords have for some time been known as a defective technique for validation.

  • Try to make some leisure time to do some things that interest you every week (hobby, sport).
  • Learn ways to say “no” when something occurs that you do not want to do or be involved with.
  • Have fun (go on a trip with someone you love, go shopping, go fishing; do not let vacation time slip away).
  • Let yourself be pleased with your achievements, both big and small (develop contentment).
  • Have a network of friends; those with strong social support systems lead healthier lives.
  • Seek help and advice early if you feel depressed, have suicidal thoughts, or consider harming yourself or others.
  • People taking medicine for mental health problems should not stop taking these medications, no matter how “well” they feel, until they have discussed their situation with their prescribing doctor(s).

This season can trigger asthma and allergies. Asthmatic patients should always keep the inhaler handy and avoid dust as much as possible.


Control Access with Turnstile


Security Begins With Controlled Access Turnstiles

Security is a rising concern in the world today. From hackers accessing valuable information to intruders threatening the safety of people and property, companies are recognizing the need for better security. To improve the physical security of buildings and facilities, one of the best options is often the use of turnstiles to control employee and visitor access.

Benefits of Turnstiles over Doors

The following highlights the advantages of using a turnstile rather than a door, including improved security, effective integration with the facility’s access control system and increased operational flexibility.

  1. Improved Security

Turnstiles provide superior access control by both detecting and deterring unauthorized entries.

When entering a facility, often the first point of entry is through a door. A common solution to secure the facility is to add a card or biometric reader and electric locks to the door. While a reader and lock requires a valid credential to unlock the door, it cannot control how long the door is open or how many people enter. Unauthorized individuals can follow authorized personnel through the secured door, resulting in a common security issue referred to as “tailgating”. Additionally, a door cannot isolate the direction of authorized passage. For instance, if a door is activated for entry, it will not be able to prevent exiting at the same time while it is open.

Unlike doors, turnstiles can limit the number of people who can enter or exit on each presented credential and control the direction of passage. In order to enter through a turnstile, a person must first present a valid credential. This signals the barriers to unlock and allow one person to pass before immediately relocking. Some turnstiles have enhanced detection features to recognize and notify of instances such as tailgating, loitering and forced passage. An unauthorized entry attempt will trigger an alarm, notify the user and alert the control center of the conflict.

  1. Access Control Integration

The access control system allows turnstiles to work in conjunction with doors, cameras and other security equipment to ensure only specific cleared individuals are using the entry. It can provide useful information such as the specific identity, time and location of each person who entered and exited the facility. The system displays live data used by management to track visitors, pinpoint alarm locations and identify potential security threats.

When a user presents a credential, the access control system communicates with the turnstile whether or not the credential is valid and if passage is allowed. Once a passage occurs, the turnstile immediately communicates back to the access control system that the passage has occurred. When presented with invalid credentials, the access control system signals the turnstile to notify the user that their credential was not accepted. When an alarm activates at the turnstile, the turnstile and access control system can function in unison to alert security, turn on nearby cameras and lock down the appropriate turnstiles and secondary doors.

  1. Operational Flexibility

Turnstiles enhance facility operations by streamlining the entry process.

Turnstiles accommodate a wide array of credential readers, allowing facilities the option of using virtually any type of media to authorize entry, including barcodes, magnetic stripe, proximity cards (RFID/NFC) or biometrics. Readers installed with the turnstiles allow users to present their own credentials to gain entry. The self-validation function lessens the burden on receptionists and security guards, allowing them to focus on their primary job functions instead of having to verify credentials.

Turnstiles can operate in a single direction or bi-directionally. Passage modes are independent for each direction and include free pass, controlled passage or locked down. Free pass mode allows entry without authorization – often used when users are not required to card out to exit. Controlled passage requires a valid credential before permitting entry. Locked down mode remains locked and does not allow entry, even when presented with a valid credential.

Management can schedule specific modes to activate at certain times of the day to meet operational requirements. For example, more turnstiles may be set as entry-only during morning hours when employees are arriving to work, then switched to exit-only in the afternoon when employees are leaving. Turnstiles can also be locked down at night and on weekends when the facility is closed. Turnstile modes are typically set through the access control system or, for more advanced turnstiles, controlled remotely using an application on the facility’s network.


Video Surveillance in the Workplace

Video Surveillance in the workplace: the benefits to the business and protecting employee rights

CCTV cameras are commonly used to deter criminals, protect people and provide evidence in legal debates. Video Surveillance in the workplace has even increased profitability and productivity for businesses. However, the monitoring of employees comes with the uncertainty of invading their privacy and is, therefore, a controversial topic.

Why use Video Surveillance or CCTV in the workplace?

  • Ensure employees are safe
  • Prevent crimes such as theft, violence, and vandalism, etc
  • Staff training – show employees the dos and don’ts
  • Ensure health and safety rules are being obeyed
  • In legal disputes, the CCTV footage can be used as evidence
  • Increase profitability and productivity

What should businesses consider when implementing Video Surveillance Systems?

Employers must meet the requirements on the use of data, and the rights of privacy under the Human Rights Act.

  • ICO must be notified if you want to use CCTV in the workplace. The data can only be used for one reason and cannot be collected for another reason. For example, if a system was set up to monitor crime, you can’t use it to monitor the amount of work done by staff.
  • Carry out an impact assessment to outline the aim of Video Surveillance and the negative impacts it could have.
  • Create a written policy – ensures that staff knows where the cameras are and provide reasons as to why the cameras are placed there.
  • Staff must be informed that they will be recorded, and the locations of cameras must be distinguished.
  • Areas of high privacy must be respected, and CCTV Camera must not be used in these areas if it invades privacy to comply with the Human Rights Act.
  • Plan how long the data will be stored, where it will be stored and who has access to it, make sure this follows the DPA.
  • Staff can make subject access requests to see recordings of themselves, the data must be provided within 40 days of receiving the request.
  • Make sure there is a written policy covering Video Surveillance usage in the work environment.
  • Mutual trust and confidence – employers must not act in a way that damages the relationship of mutual trust and confidence between themselves and employees.

The process of installing Video Surveillance in business is complex. However, if employers take into consideration the suggestions outlined above then the process should be smooth and result in a highly beneficial procurement.

OFFICE SECURITY: Major importance of Access Control in your office

A critical element in securing your office is controlling access to your business space. While cyber security tends to be front of mind for many businesses, controlling who enters your office and when is your first line of defense against intruders, thieves and even potential employee misconduct. Choosing wisely protects your staff, your stuff and your data.

What is an Access Control System?

Access control systems control entry to your business space and can also establish levels of access for areas of the office and particular devices. The system authenticates the identity of the user and cross references against a database to attain the access authorization level. This system gathers and stores data that then enables a business owner to monitor movement of employees and visitors in the office, which could lead to identification of perpetrators if there is a security breach and enables proactive assessment of security risks to make adjustments as needed.

There are several types of authentication:

  • Key fob/access card – a physical card that can be swiped or scanned for entry.
  • Biometrics – facial recognition or fingerprints that identify the person seeking access.
  • Password or pin code – approved users can enter into a keypad.
  • Mobile apps with barcode – approved users download the app to their phones and then generate a barcode to enter the office in the same way they’d use a key card.

There are many benefits to these forms of authentication. For each, the system administrator can immediately turn off an employee’s access credentials upon his or her leaving the company. Additionally, for companies previously using a security guard or receptionist to approve access, technology supported systems speed up access for employees who previously may have had to wait their turn in line. And, if there’s an emergency, access control systems can enable quick lock-down if needed.

Types of Access Control

There are two approaches to connecting the various components within a system, including door readers, locks, and cameras and the administrative system or dashboard, which is generally a computer:

  • Traditional systems use control panels physically connected to system equipment. This is seen as the more secure option of the two types of systems, but it can be limited or costly in that there are caps on the number of access points that can be attached to a control panel. If one panel doesn’t support the number of access points you require, you either have to reduce access points or invest in additional control panels.
  • IP systems are network-based, connecting door readers using the Ethernet or wireless connections. This removes limits on the number of access points in the system but there is concern about the potential for the system to be hacked.

There are three types of access control systems:

  • Discretionary Access Control (DAC): This is the least stringent form as it provides one level of access for all with approved credentials.
  • Mandatory Access Control (MAC): This is the strictest and most work- intensive form of access control as it requires the system administrator to assign an access level to each individual added to the system.
  • Role Based Access Control (RBAC): This is the most common form. With this approach, roles or job titles are added to the system with a level of access assigned to each based on the access needs someone in that role will have. Then when a new person is added to the system, they are added with a given role or job title and the level of access is automatically assigned. This is also called rules-based access.

There are also several options for hosting your system:

  • Locally hosted via an on-site server generally using a PC for system administration.
  • A cloud-based system that stores access permissions in the cloud and the administrator can access the system dashboard from anywhere via a web browser. The admin should experience uniformity of functionality across
    devices, i.e. access, information and experience should be the same whether on PC, tablet, mobile, or other device.
  • A mobile or smartphone based system offers administrative and user functions via an app.
  • An IoT based system is an “integrated network of intelligent computing devices connected through internet to communicate with each other without any human interference.

The Advantages of a PTZ Camera Over its Peers

What are PTZ Cameras?

Cameras are cameras with the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) and allows you to monitor larger areas that would require multiple fixed cameras. These movements can be manually controlled by using monitoring software or a joy stick, or automatically set up using camera management software.

Being able to move the camera necessary by a security guard allows your security staff to respond quickly to events they spot with the surveillance system.

You can also use camera management software to set up guard tours, where the camera will automatically move to monitor pre-set locations on a schedule. Some cameras can also auto track movement, following a person or car moving in its field of view by moving to monitor suspicious actions or high-action areas, PTZ cameras offer the security of video surveillance while minimizing installation.

How PTZ Works

  • The camera can swivel to the left and right, allowing it to have a wide area of coverage
  • Pan can range from a complete 360 circle to smaller area


  • The camera can tilt up and down, giving it a wide vertical range of coverage
  • The amount the camera can tilt will vary by camera model, but goes up to 180 degrees


  • Optical zoom physically adjusts the camera lens, changing the focal length to zoom in and out; this allows the camera to maintain image quality
  • The amount of optical zoom is expressed as #x, such as 18x, and represents how
    much the camera can zoom (change the lens focal length)
  • Digital zoom blows up the image using software, often resulting in pixilated
    images when zoomed too far, and is not recommended

How PTZ Cameras Can Help You
Because PTZ cameras can automatically move in response to activity or pre-set schedules, a single camera can often be used to monitor an entire room or area that would require two or more fixed cameras. This flexibility makes them idea for locations where a lot of activity occurs including shopping areas and parking lots, because they can follow anything out of the ordinary that happens. Other uses for PTZ cameras can include:

  • Wide open areas with many points of interest, so the camera can move to monitor them all
  • In guard stations, where security personnel can pan, tilt, or zoom the cameras as they see suspicious activity
  • As part of the overall surveillance system, in conjunction with fixed cameras—the PTZ camera can follow activities, while a fixed camera can take detailed shots.

When installing PTZ cameras as part of a surveillance system, there are some important factors to consider. PTZ cameras should be a part of your overall system, so ask yourself:

  • Is facial recognition important? You may want to consider using a PTZ camera to monitor the entire room from a high viewpoint, and a strategically placed HD camera to capture faces
  • How much do you need the camera to pan and tilt? A 360 pan removes all blind spots, but a camera in a corner doesn’t need to record the blank wall directly behind it

Do you want optical or digital zoom? Optical zoom provides clearer, more detailed images because the zoom isn’t taken after the image is taken PTZ cameras are available from all major surveillance camera brands including Vista,  Axis, Optica and Vivotek.

Biometric Vault Management



Banks and financial institutions are no outsiders to biometric technology like the Biometric Access Vault Management System, yet they’re indicating new enthusiasm for this innovation, in light of current circumstances. Passwords have for some time been known as a defective technique for validation. Numerous individuals still utilize a similar secret word on a few sites, making it simple for cybercriminals to take their character. To balance that, FIs influence multifaceted verification, for example, once passwords sent over SMS or email, yet clients discover the procedure cumbersome. Accordingly, biometric validation utilizing facial, unique finger impression and voice acknowledgment, just as other biometric methods and advancements, is on the ascent around the world.

To expand client maintenance and income, budgetary foundations are evading a one-size-fits-all methodology.

The bank vault is one of the most important aspects of the banking sector, this is where treasures, valuables, money, records, and documents are kept, and any compromise to this section of the bank can lead to the fold-up of the bank.


Bank vaults are a vital piece of the structure inside which they are developed utilizing protected dividers and a solidly planned entryway shut with a mind-boggling lock. The security of the vault is the absolute most significant part of the vault framework. The bank vault, for the most part, comprises of locks that include a correct mix for it to open and after that two uncommonly planned keys are additionally utilized together with the lock blend, these keys are given to two distinctive faculty in the bank to keep and at whatever point there’s a requirement for anything to be removed from the vault or to be put inside the vault the two workforces are constantly required to be around to both open and lock the vault framework. Regardless of the security level engaged with the bank vault framework, there is as yet the waiting likelihood of trade-off.

A wrongly handled key, a divulged password, a malicious hacker, and organized criminal groups can almost easily make a vault system vulnerable. To prevent the possibility of internal compromise by the staffs of the banks that have been given the duty to keep the keys to the vault and the passcodes of the vault higher level of security such as the use of biometrics has to be implemented. Biometrics technology now has a very wide range of applications in virtually all industries Biometric Access Vault Management System (BAVMS) is a solution used to automate and authenticate vault door access control. The mode of authentication is based on individual unique behavioral or physical traits such as iris, fingerprints, facial, etc. is referred to as biometrics.

Biometrics Framework

Biometrics is utilized for robotized individual acknowledgment. The study of perceiving people dependent on their interesting conduct or physical characteristics, for example, fingerprints, face, voice, walk and so on is alluded to as biometrics. Sensors are typically used to get biometric qualities. Biometric frameworks procure the one of a kind attributes curious to it just because by means of a procedure called enlistment. The one of a kind highlights of a biometric attribute is procured during enlistment. To confirm the realness of a client, the biometric framework makes a correlation between enlisted biometric quality and the question attribute. This correlation, as a rule, restores a match or confuse. Biometric attributes are novel. Biometric frameworks use the uniqueness of biometric qualities to forestall pantomime. Most biometric frameworks are either Unimodal or Multimodal. The Unimodal biometric framework, as the name infers, utilizes only one biometric quality while the Multimodal framework utilizes more than one biometric attribute. The utilization of multimodal strategy improves the proficiency of biometric framework.

Fingerprint Recognition

Fingerprints are the most settled for and most part uses a kind of biometric recognizable proof. Each individual’s fingerprint is extraordinary. The structure of the edges and valley on the outside of the fingers is in charge of this uniqueness. Explicit focuses, called details focuses are utilized to separate fingerprints. In Unique finger impression acknowledgment, the particular edges on the fingertips delivered the impressions from which highlights are being separated.


BAVMS Lock Operation

More than 2 persons (Vault Custodians) will be given access privilege to the vault doors. Any two must combine both fingerprint and unique individual password to have access to any of the doors (i.e. if Vault Custodians with Access Privilege in each bank branch are A, B, C, D: to gain access to the vault anytime will require both password and fingerprint combinations). Possible combinations are A&B or B&C or B&D or A&C or A&D or C&D. The system is designed to follow a predefined sequence of steps in an orderly fashion. These steps are Idle state, Request state,

Registration state and authentication state. At the idle state, the system is not being operated upon or used. This is the initial state of the system at startup; it can be changed from this state to another and back. Request state involves the users to press the enter key on the keypad and the state of the machine transit to the request state, where the fingerprint and the Passcode of the user are requested for, In the case where only the fingerprint is presented without the Passcode for scanning the system returns to an idle state. Registration state occurs only once, and it is the stage where the authorized personnel fingerprint and Passcode are picked and stored in the database. At the authentication state, the individual presents his fingerprint or Passcode to be scanned depending on the biometric trait registered for the individual, the scanner then extracts the features and runs a check with the registered features that are in the database for a match. When a match is found the system moves to the authenticated state if a match is not found then the system returns to the request state.
