There is a lot of debate and fear around whether or not customers would be scared off by visible security pedestals on shop entrance and exit areas. For most shoppers, this is not even a concern. They are either indifferent or in favour of it because it makes them feel safer. Only some feel discomfort or embarrassment when, for example, the alarm goes if someone walks through.
Whatever the case might be, there is one way other than using concealed systems, to make everyone happy: advertising panels.
Advertising panels are thin, but sturdy plastic covers that clip into your electronic article surveillance (EAS) system. It is important to be sure you are using panels made for your EAS system; otherwise, you might block the sensors or visitor counting!
These panels can be utilized in a variety of ways:
Key factors to consider when determining your loss prevention strategy are how well your security tags and labels can be deactivated and detected by your EAS system. The third factor is to determine how your store staff respond to alarms.
If any of these elements are not performing well, the effectiveness of an EAS alarm system is significantly lowered, as there is a high risk that there may be no alarms or false alarms. Our latest EAS technology innovation solves this problem. The Checkout Assisted Shrinkage Antenna is specifically designed for grocery retailers and offers a customer-friendly way to significantly reduce theft by positioning the EAS technology right at the point of sale.
