These systems are incredibly scalable and are considered one of the most successful ways to deal with stock loss and product shrinkage.

Why Retail Security Systems Work

Put simply, an EAS security system is a great visual reminder to would-be shoplifters that your store is not an easy target. This combined with the visual and audible alarm abilities of many systems gives a clear indication to shop-stealers that there is an increased risk associated with stealing from your outlet.

What type of Retail EAS Systems are there?

There’s a wide range of combinations when it comes to security systems for your store. There are many options including gates, labels, device mounting and other elements that you will need to take into account.

Let’s break down some of these elements so you can get a better understanding of what’s involved with implementing a retail security solution in your store.

Complete Retail Alarm System

This would incorporate gates, labels and possibly source tagging of your products. Let’s expand on each of these items.

Security Gates
These are the gates you will see at the entrance and exit of most retail outlets. We stock three amazing security gates. The Aquila Wide Aisle EAS System, the Merkur 8.2 MHz EAS System and the Venus Orion Wide Aisle EAS System. These three gates will suit a vast majority of retail outlets around Australia.

Security Labels
Security labels come in a wide range of sizes, types and colours – from stickers that can be applied to product packaging and cans, bottles and boxes, through to pin tags for clothing and buttons or hard tags for a wide range of other retail items. Security labels work in conjunction with security gates to ensure that if a product leaves the store without being ‘deactivated’ the alarm system will sound or signal.

Source Tagging
Source tagging is where you put labels onto or into your products during the manufacturing process. This solves a multitude of issues with staff adding labels to products like misplaced labels, staff time spent adding security stickers and incorrect labels being applied to products.

If you take all three of these aspects (Gates, Labels and Source Tagging) and put them together you have a great anti-theft security system for your retail outlet or store.

If you’re a retailer in Australia you understand the difficulties and challenges retailers are facing with a plateaued economy, wages having only increased slightly over the past decade and the infiltration of online shopping taking a sizable chunk of the market. There is one area however that many businesses loathe as it’s something that strikes at the heart of their business and costs Australian retailers over $2.5 billion dollars a year ( source ). What’s worse is that shrinkage seems to be on the rise with a 16% increase over the past two years (according to respondents from The Australia and New Zealand Retail Crime Survey 2019). When combined, both customer theft (shoplifting or shop stealing) and dishonest employees (internal theft) account for just under 80% of overall theft.
