Sensormatic’s history with item level technologies
Sensormatic has significant experience and history of continuous innovation in both EAS and RFID. Item-level tagging is our core competency. We place over 6 billion security labels on retail merchandise every year, three times the volume of our nearest competitor.
Over the past decade, we’ve developed expertise in a wide variety of item-level technologies, including acousto-magnetic, electro magnetic, radio frequency, microwave, and RFID. This broad and deep background in these technologies led us to develop AM EAS (58 kHz) as a superior solution for item-level security. Unlike other item security technologies, it provides the most robust performance in uncooperative (high-theft) environments and works on items containing liquids and non-ferrous metals. For that reason, AM EAS remains our core offering for anti-theft protection and item-level security. RFID is an enabling technology to provide item visibility for inventory management.
There is no practical link between other item level EAS security technologies and RFID. Beyond being in a frequency spectrum, EAS has nothing in common with RFID.
While it is technically feasible to combine EAS devices with UHF RFID to deliver dual EAS and RFID functionality, a parallel RFID infrastructure still has to be deployed to read UHF in either case. Because AM EAS and UHF RFID are so far apart in the frequency spectrum, dual tagging can occur without interference and they are easier to integrate.
