Blog - Vending Security

Intelligent Vending Ltd >> Blog


As part of our ongoing expansion, we’ve added a few new products to the site

Last week, we introduced the Astro Systems GBA note readers and Microcoin coin mechanisms. But now, a special mention must go to the GBA GV1 Acceptor. This state of the art note reader is perfect for kiosk machines, or the gaming industry. Reliable, simple and holds the capacity to accept notes from a massive range of world currencies – almost where ever you are in the world, this machine will accept your notes! Configured out of the box for GBP, the note guide is a simple snap-change for different currencies, which can then be locked as you want it, into place within the housing.

Specifically designed with security in mind, the GV1 works in harmony with the GBA ST2 note validator, using “Sense Technology” note validation, to minimise fraud on your system.

As with all GBA technology solutions, the mechanism is backed with dedicated support staff, research and development engineers. Its highly unlikely anything will go wrong, but should the worst happen, you’re in safe hands!

At Intelligent Vending, we think this is a fabulous product, and the way forwards with regards to your note reading needs, the simple, yet rigidly designed mechanism is on the cutting edge of note reading technology.

How Secure Are Your Vending Machines?

A drinks vending machine in Kaua’i, Honolulu was reportedly dragged from outside a convenience store early last Saturday morning, before being discarded on a nearby road. Following this, local police have apparently urged businesses to review the security of their vending machines.

Though, had the owners taken advantage of our superior security equipment, we have no doubt those thieves would still be at the scene; perspiring in futility as the vending machine diligently stood its ground, thwarting enemy attacks.

Properly considering any risks or security issues which may threaten a site’s vending machines may seem obvious, but it can be overlooked – sometimes with great detriment to the operator. As with many problems, prevention is the best cure – spending a little extra money early on can save lots of time and money in the future, should the unthinkable occur.

Of course, for sites with outdoor vending machines, security is that much more important. If you are concerned about the security of your vending machines, or would like more information on our products and services, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Specialised Vending Machines

Vending machines are now more than just a place to get a quick snack. Vending machines supplying bespoke products such as music CDs and magazines are becoming increasingly available. These are ideal for creating a custom retail environment and providing consumers with a diverse range of products.

Convenience is becoming increasingly important for businesses and the general public. Providing a self-service option for high-demand products and frequent purchases can offer a high level of convenience which is beneficial to both parties. Stationery items and computer consumables are great examples of such products and vending machines that dispense these products can be popular and profitable.

At Intelligent Vending we are aware that there may be an element of concern regarding the potential of theft from or vandalism to vending machines carrying high value or high-demand products; this is where our advanced technology can help you stay ahead of the game.

Vending Machine Safety and Security

Vending machine manufacturers test their products thoroughly, and build specifically designed units which inhibit theft and injury in accordance with strict consumer guidelines.

The sheer weight of the materials use in construction and the resulting unit size make vending machines very secure. This also makes them very stable, which reduces the risk of them toppling over and causing serious or irreversible damage (a fully stocked machine can weigh as much as 400 kilograms). User safety is of paramount importance.

Sadly, accidents do happen. However these incidents are rare and even fewer are fatal, particularly when vending machines are appropriately used and regularly serviced by a management company like Intelligent Vending Ltd.

Smart vending machine security

No longer is a padlock the only thing standing between a pilferer and your goods. Wherever your vending machines are situated, Intelligent Vending Ltd. can offer you a security solution to suit. From internal camera surveillance to theft indicators, bolt down feet to anti-tilt wall brackets, you’ll find everything to make your machines secure and safe to use.

Vending machine technology has advanced considerably too. Coin weight and size recognition means it’s even harder for people to outsmart your machine. Also modern spiral mechanisms hold products in place until paid for, even if the machine is tilted (within reason).

Internal sensors also know whether or not a product has been vended before taking a customer’s money, resulting in fewer angry outbursts. Smart!

Working together with Intelligent Vending Ltd. you can ensure your vending machines are secure and, most importantly, safe for your staff and clients to use.
