Door Guards as retail anti-theft devices

Larger stores sometimes have the luxury of an employee only entrance which utilizes some type of door guard or watchman.  This system offers a huge advantage in the ongoing battle to mitigate and control internal theft. These watchmen are hired to inspect bags and check refunds as well as to sign off on employee purchases. They are also alert to retail anti-theft devices that may have accidentally (or otherwise) failed to be deactivated.

It is not that easy for most of us. Although there might be an approved entrance and/or exit, there is always a back door which is normally used for trash and receipt of deliveries.  Any security measures used at the back door are designed to prevent employee theft and not to prevent shoplifting.

This back door area offers a huge opportunity for employee theft to occur unless someone is watching this door.  Unfortunately there are many employees who are looking for opportunities to sneak merchandise out the back door.

This is where a device like Nano Gate is the perfect solution. The design is compact enabling it to hang discreetly on a wall and out of the way of damage. The big bulky EAS towers are not conducive to receiving a truck full of boxed-up merchandise. The Nano Gate is a much better fit.

Employing this extra alarm creates one more barrier that an employee attempting to steal must thwart. They are now prevented from sneaking EAS tagged merchandise out the back door and attempting to deactivate tags in the privacy of their own home. A Nano Gate absolutely reduces or eliminates high dollar items walking out the back.
