Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) – Sensormatic – ADT Security
Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS)
|Electronic Article Surveillance is a system that protects merchandise from theft using advanced Sensormatic Acousto-Magnetic technologies. Designed to protect individual items against theft while providing honest customers with the chance to browse and staff more time to spend on customer service, it is a popular and cost effective solution. EAS system Componets include: |
1) Labels and Hard Tags - electronic sensors that are attached to merchandise.
2) Deactivators and Detachers - used at the point of sale to electronically deactivate labels and detach reusable hard tags as items are purchased.
3) Detectors - that create a surveillance zone at exits or checkout aisles.
The EAS process begins by attaching labels or hard tags to merchandise. When an item is purchased, the label is deactivated or the hard tag is removed. However, if merchandise with an active label or hard tag is carried past the detector, an alarm sounds.
Over 800,000 EAS systems are installed worldwide, primarily in the retail market. This includes Apparel, Drug, Discount, Home Centers, Hypermarkets, Food, and Entertainment stores.
Systems are designed to integrate into the normal operations of a store without detracting from customer service. At the same time the pedestals act as a powerful and reliable deterrent to would-be shoplifters, and enable retailers to open merchandise more effectively.
