Well, simply put, if the bank is properly secured with modern security systems, then its locks should not be purely mechanical.
Modern security systems, allow any door or lock, to be connected to a centralised hub, a database if you will, which records each and every use of
any door or access point, connected to that system. It should be able to tell when a door was unlocked, and what time it was locked again. Accessing
this data is usually done by either the installer when requested, a companies security management team (who will study products attached to the
buildings under their protection), or the authorities in the event of a heist of some sort.
These systems are used widely in businesses and government offices with high value items or data in them. Technically speaking therefore, if the bank
is up to scratch, then finding out the truth of the matter should be a simple matter of accessing the time stamp database for each use of the access
points which have allegedly been left open when they ought to have been locked.
That said, if the bank has not got those systems, then one would have to rely on the camera systems in the bank, to establish the facts. What I would
say however, is that regarding the possibility of recording your movements around the bank to prove your attention to security concerns, it might be
an idea not to go ahead with that until you have asked permission from the top management of the firm. The reason I say this, is that understandably,
bank management do not like the idea of persons from outside their company, having access to video which shows the operation, model, make,
distribution and application, of security products in their buildings. The reason for this, rather obviously, is that such material, even if recorded
for good reason, can be used by criminals to plan methods for breaking through those security measures to enact a heist of some sort. If, therefore,
that video were to fall into the wrong hands, that would represent a massive breach in bank security.
So in summary, if their equipment is up to snuff, then the facts of this situation are a matter of databased record (these systems do not offer an
"erase" function for entries into the access log as far as I know, since to provide such a feature would be anathemic to the cause of creating the
system in the first place), and if that record is accessed and you have been vigilant as you say, then the record ought to bare that out. If the
equipment within is NOT up to snuff, then make sure you ask permission from the head of the company before acting on your plan to video your passage
through the building, to prove your point.
I wish you every success with this issue. I know what it is like to have customers who choose to make ones life difficult, and I do not envy you the
backbiting and nonsense that you are encountering.
