Why do you need a EAS system for your business?
To protect your inventory from theft. Theft from customers and employees.
As a business owner weather you have one location or thousands you can’t see everything that goes on in your business. You can install mirrors, video at the register and various vantage points in your store but a EAS system is a deterrent to thieves as soon as they enter the door.
Is there a way around the sensors at the door? Of course there is and career criminals know how to by pass the system. But what so many people don’t know is that it is the impulse shoplifters that cost a business the most. The mother of two who picks something up just for the thrill of it all. The kid that tucks that $500.00 item into his jacket.
A EAS system will deter criminals as soon as they walk in. Why chance stealing from a store that has a detection system when the store next door doesn’t?
How can putting a EAS system in your store stop employees?
First of all I suggest getting a barcode scanner that deactivates the tags when you scan the item. This will stop pass through – When a checkers scans one item and bags it then bags the next without scanning.
The tag will sound the alarm at the door and the customer will have to come back – preferably to a different checker or store personell to verify the products verse the receipt.
There are two major players in the EAS world. Checkpoint and Sensormatic. Checkpoint uses Radio frequency tags and labels while Sensormatic uses a magnetic field.
The Barcode Lady has Labels and Tags for both of these users. We offer both the genuine product and a generic that is more cost effective yet 100% guaranteed to work with the system you have. Hard Tags, Detachers, Lanyards and more.
For Checkpoint customers we have blank tags that can used with your current Zebra, Godex, Datamax and other popular barcode printers so you won’t have to double tag. This also makes it look like a regular barcode label and not a security label.
Wikipedia defines –
Electronic article surveillance (EAS) is a technological method for preventing shoplifting from retail stores, pilferage of books from libraries or removal of properties from office buildings. Special tags are fixed to merchandise or books. These tags are removed or deactivated by the clerks when the item is properly bought or checked out. At the exits of the store, a detection system sounds an alarm or otherwise alerts the staff when it senses active tags. Some stores also have detection systems at the entrance to the restrooms that sound an alarm if someone tries to take unpaid merchandise with them into the restroom. For high-value goods that are to be manipulated by the patrons, wired alarm clips called spider wrap may be used instead of tags.
