What Do You Need to Install an ATM?

Getting an ATM installed in your business is an easy way to bring in more foot traffic with minimal work on your part. You must consider a few things before an ATM can be installed, though. Learn what your business needs for a successful ATM installation so you can start making the necessary adjustments today!

ATM Location

Having a location chosen is essential before your new ATM can be installed. The ATM location should be visible to customers and easily accessible. Additionally, it needs to be located near a power outlet. ATMs do generate heat when they’re used, so having a space with good ventilation can help prevent overheating issues. 

ATMs are typically located toward the front of a business. This allows someone to use the ATM without walking through the whole building if they don’t need to. Outdoor signage promoting the new ATM inside can help draw in more foot traffic too. 

Security Around the ATM 

It’s no surprise that ATMs full of cash are a hot target for thieves. Installing good security measures around the ATM isn’t technically a requirement, but it’s highly encouraged by any reputable ATM installer. ATM security can include surveillance cameras, alarms, and WiFi network security. ATMs use network connections to contact banking institutions, so having a secure connection is non-negotiable.

Your ATM installer can offer suggestions on the best locations for security cameras. They can also assess the security measures your business already has to determine where there’s room for improvement to better protect your new ATM. In addition to upgraded security measures, you should contact your insurance company to discuss your current coverage and adjust it as needed to cover this valuable new addition to your business. 

Machine Codes and Training

Every ATM requires training at the time of installation. You’ll be taught how to use different machine codes, how to update the emergency contact number, and how to troubleshoot simple problems with the machine. This training can feel overwhelming for first-time machine owners, but you’ll get the hang of it in no time. 

Depending on the size of your business, it may be a good idea to share the machine codes with a trusted second-in-command. Be sure you know what number to contact if you have any problems with the ATM after installers have left.
