1. An automated teller machine (ATM), comprising:
a housing comprising an interior surface;
a substance adhered to the interior surface, the substance comprising a piezoelectric element; and
a detection circuit coupled to the substance, the detection circuit being configured to:
receive a response pattern generated by the piezoelectric element based on a vibration of at least one component within the ATM;
compare the response pattern to a stored signature corresponding to an expected vibration pattern of the at least one component to detect a vibration pattern indicative of intrusion, the stored signature being derived by the ATM from vibrations of the at least one component within the ATM occurring during a calibration period; and
generate, based on the comparison detecting a vibration pattern indicative of intrusion, an indication of an intrusion into the housing.
