Anti-Shoplifting System

Right Solution for Right Security

Anti-Shoplifting System

Let's imagine for the moment that you own a large department store, and you are having a big problem with shoplifting. What are you going to do? You cannot let it continue, because every month your accounting system tells you that you are losing thousands of dollars to theft and that can make it very hard to compete.

As a retailer focusing on the problem of what's known in the industry as loss prevention, you basically have three methods at your disposal to slow the shoplifters down:

  • 1- You can watch everyone in the store like a hawk and make sure they don't steal anything. You can do that using security guards and/or video survelliance systems.
  • 2- You can make things hard to remove from the store by bolting them down, attaching cables, putting things in display cases and behind the counter.
  • 3- You can use a system that attaches special tags onto everything so that an alarm goes off whenever a shoplifter tries to walk out with an item.

EAS System

EAS Security is protection for your shop or retail chain and the word it self means Electronic Article Surveillance. An EAS Security system usually consists of EAS Antennas and EAS Tags or labels. These components signals to each other if they come too close.

Detachers and Activator-Deactivator Machines

Desirable qualities in deactivators include a large deactivation zone and 100 percent deactivation with no false alarms. The type of electronic deactivator depends upon the kind of EAS system and tags used by the store. We're all familiar with hand-held scanners and flat scanner pads used to swipe and deactivate merchandise tags.

Traditionally, scanners must touch a label directly to use specific frequency to deactivate it. But with the growing use of source tagging (hiding identification tags somewhere on an item or in its packaging) proximity deactivators, or verifiers that don't require contact with a label, are becoming more important. There are also mass or bulk deactivators, which bring EAS labels from an inactive state to an active state while the products are still packaged in master cartons or cases.

Detector Devices

Devices used to detect knives, weapons or explosives may vary based on method of detection or application. Some devices are suitable for screening people, while other technologies can only be used to search containers or vehicles. Security officers involved in the inspection process are responsible for preventing the introduction of hazardous materials into the area

Labels Tags

EAS security labels tags are the most effective type to combat theft. The EAS system sees tags and labels in communication with an antenna housed near the entrance to a store. When the tagged item comes into proximity of this antenna, an alarm sounds, alerting staff to a potential threat.

There are two main EAS systems (radio frequency and acousto magnetic) and the difference is the frequency at which the tags/labels and antenna operate.
