§ 75-c. Security measures. Every banking institution shall maintain
the following security measures with respect to each of the automated
teller machine facilities within its dominion and control:

1. A surveillance camera or cameras, which shall view and record all
persons entering an automated teller machine facility located within the
interior of a building, or which shall view and record all activity
occurring within a minimum of three feet in front of an automated teller
machine located outside a building and open to the outdoor air. Such
camera or cameras need not record banking transactions made at the
automated teller machines. The recordings made by such cameras shall be
preserved by the banking institution for at least forty-five days.

competence in such matters and as permitted by local building codes, at
least one exterior wall which provides an unobstructed view of the
interior of the automated teller machine facility.

(c) A reflective mirror or mirrors, as necessary, placed in such a
manner as to permit a person entering an indoor automated teller machine
facility to view areas within such facility that are otherwise concealed
to plain view.

information:

(1) the activity of the automated teller machine facility is being
recorded by a surveillance camera or cameras;

(2) customers should close the entry door completely upon entering and
exiting;
