I realize that there are limitations placed on the installation of ATMs, but it would seem to me that an inexpensive addition to those locations that suffer from sun glare in the morning or afternoon would be to install a sun sensor and RV type automaticly deployed shade when the sun glare is a problem. It would be greatly appreciated when trying to read the screen in bright sun.

Speaking of ATMs - would it be possible to reposition the ATM across from the QFC in Enumclaw so it would be usable in the afternoon? The whole unit or just the user interface could be rotated so it facess N or S or as an alternative, position a sun blocking screen on the W side or put a pull down shade behind the user.

This suggestion is similar to one I have forwarded via the survey that got me into this forum. I have the problem described herein, but I also have a problem of allowing informational access to some of my several accounts without allowing said access to all accounts under my name. My suggestion is twofold, first strengthen the authentication process (possibly as a personal option) by following the current login procedure with a text message to one of a set of cell numbers selected by the person logging in from a list supplied by the account owner. Admittance to the accounts is granted only upon presenting the coded msg sent via text after first supplying the correct account name and pw. Thus, the access is constrained by not only the current criteria of knowledge of account name and associated pw, but also the posession of the cell phone in question and responding with the code sent to the cell. While this is not ironclad, it is a great step forward in account access security at very little cost to implement and zero cost for almost all users - some may see a slight uptick in text msg billing. Having implemented the aforementioned security enhancement, the next step is to create a hierarchical account structure where there is a master account holder who holds the ability to instantiate subordinate accounts with access to a subset of the sundry accounts owned by the master with privileges assigned by the master to each subordinate account in a profile for each modifiable only by the master. Assignable privileges would include read-only access and write access and possibly a restricted subset of other banking transactions. If this were implemented, I could instantiate accounts for my several grandchildren giving each the privilege of viewing their individual account balances and the abiliity to deposit funds into their accounts without allowing them to withdraw funds without consulting with me first. I would not allow them privileges to see or modify any of the data in my joint checking, savings or business accounts however. I would maintain the profiles for each of the accounts such that as they grow older and more mature, I would have the option of allowing them more control of their finances by modifying their profiles to allow withdrawls up to a specified limit or no limit when they reach 18 and become responsible for their own finances.
