2 Alarm


Creating A Tidal Wave- Prevent Shoplfting

Laundry bottles are hard plastic, curved and relatively heavy. Finding a plausible solution to prevent shoplifting has not been easy for the general merchandise retailers who carry these items. That makes it that much easier for shoplifters, mostly within the drug trade, to abscond with these expensive and largely unprotected detergent bottles.
EAS labels can be peeled off the outside, and would damage the contents if affixed to the inside. Straight pin EAS tags have nowhere to go, and puncturing the bottle would cause it to leak- spoiling the soap inside.
There are, however, some retail anti theft devices, which are, designed more for clothing security than detergent but still work surprisingly well. 
Alpha 2 Alarm and the Alpha 3 Alarm Alpha Security branded Cable Loks have a secured loop that wraps around the bottle’s handle. 
The Cable Loks can utilize either the Alpha 2 Alarm or the Alpha 3 Alarm technology. Store employees will have a much better chance of being aware of the thefts before the damage can be done. The Alpha 2 Alarm will sound as the lock is tampered with. If a shoplifter doesn’t tamper with the lock to defeat it before they leave the store, the Cable Lok will stay armed. If they pass by the exit door towers and the Lok has an Alpha 3 Alarm, the lock will emit an audible alarm for up to ten minutes allowing the shoplifter to be noticed and the merchandise to be followed.
Visit the Loss Prevention Store for Alpha 2Alarm, Alpha 3Alarm, Alpha Fashion2, Alpha Jewel Lok, Alpha Nano Gate,  Alpha Shark Tag, Alpha Spider Wrap and other retail anti-theft devices from Alpha Security to use in conjunction with your Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system that can help you prevent shoplifting in your business.

Simply Ineffective- Alpha Security

When I consult for small businesses, they often ask which items of merchandise they need to focus on to prevent shoplifting. I often suggest using a layered approach to their retail anti theft devices. 
Alpha Security retail anti theft devices are solutions to protecting specific product groups. There is no reason why a retail business needs to try and fit the same EAS tag to every piece of merchandise. It simply is ineffective. 
Since Alpha Security created different designs and abilities for different products it is easy to layer on security. 
If you have merchandise that needs to be on a hook or rounder, then you can look to using Alpha Fashion2 Alarms or Alpha Jewel Lok. A necklace is well protected with those solutions.
Obviously with those products to prevent shoplifting, why would you try and use a keeper box for that same necklace? While it would protect the necklace, it would be a deterrent to customer actually wanting to purchase it. A keeper box is best used for packaged product like cologne or razors.
It’s not only about having retail anti theft devices, it is really about having solutions that work for your security and are easy for customers to shop around.

Did I Really Loose That Again? – Retail Anti Theft Devices

I often consider buying those remote tags that you can put on your remote control or your car keys. All you have to do is push a button and you hear an audible alarm or see a flashing light and you are drawn to your missing item’s location. It would be extremely handy for when I misplace my cell phone- especially when I leave it on silent! It reminds me of Alpha 2 Alarm and Alpha 3 Alarm retail anti theft devices.
The Alpha Security Alpha 2 Alarm and Alpha 3 Alarm products are alarms that are triggered when a product is being tampered with or is being stolen. Inside the store, an early warning alarm sounds when the devices are being tampered with. 
With any retail anti theft devices that use the Alpha 3 Alarm, if a shoplifter leaves the store with a product, the alarm will sound allowing you to follow the noise and retrieve your lost/-stolen merchandise. It is an important enhancement to prevent shoplifting, or more importantly, an enhancement to be able to recover your merchandise from a shoplifting attempt.

CableLok – Alpha Security

Within the Alpha Security family of products to prevent shoplifting, Alpha 2 Alarm and Alpha 3 Alarm are not actual products but rather identifiers of the technology that is utilized. Lets take a closer look at one of their retail anti theft devices- the CableLok.
A CableLok is a portable and reusable locking system. It is an alarm base with an attached lanyard that is threaded through or around the merchandise to secure it and prevent shoplifting. The cable lanyard comes in three sizes: 6”, 48” and 72”.
There are two options of alarm systems to choose from- either the Alpha 3 Alarm or the Alpha 2 Alarm.
Standard EAS protection if a breech occurs is the first part of the Alpha 2 Alarm system. The second part provides an early warning alarm if the lock is tampered with inside of the store.
The Alpha 3 Alarm incorporates those same functionalities. Additionally, the third alarm is the 95 dBA self alarm if the lock and merchandise is removed from the store. The long lasting lithium battery, flashing light and visible speaker are standard on both models of the CableLok.
So the Alpha 2 Alarm and the Alpha 3 Alarm are not the actual retail anti theft devices. They are the alarming parts of the products like the Alpha Security CableLok.

A Cut Above The Rest – Alpha 2 Alarm

When you attach an Alpha 2 Alarm retail anti-theft device, you want to be sure it is going to do everything it can to prevent shoplifting. That is why when Alpha Security made their retail anti-theft devices like the Alpha 2 Alarm, they thought about every single component.

One of the most impressive parts of the Alpha 2 Alarm tags is not the actual alarm or the technology that is carried inside of these little devices. What is really impressive is the security cable that wraps around the merchandise and connects the tag.

This security cable is specially designed to not be cut. There is an exterior coating that protects your merchandise from catches and snags. The interior is super strong while remaining thin and pliable. You could try to cut this cable with everything from kitchen scissors to wire cutters and the cable will remain uncut and undamaged.

When you put a retail anti-theft device on your merchandise you want to ensure that it stays put and can stand up against tampering. The Alpha 2 Alarm tags will do just that.

It’s a Wrap – Alpha 2 Alarm

Alpha Security created their Alpha 2 Alarm lanyard lock for more than just purses, even though this is one of the best uses for that particular type of EAS alarm.

The Alpha 2 Alarm is a versatile retail anti-theft device. It can prevent shoplifting of a wide variety of accessories. The lanyards are large enough to work with large totes and handbags. They are not so big that they would not work for the smaller wristlets that are in fashion right now. The lanyard can also be used for other suitcases and luggage.

The Alpha 2 Alarm retail anti-theft device is a small block (only a few inches long) that has a wire lanyard permanently attached at one end. The wire is a heavy-duty wire that prevents it from easily being cut. In order to protect your merchandise, the cable wire is covered in a protective coating. This makes sure the wire does not snag on any fabrics or decorative embellishments.

The other end of the wire remains loose until it is attached to the merchandise. Then the loose end is inserted into the block. There is a push button release for easy removal with a detacher at your POS.

Your First Choice – Alpha Security

So why would you choose Alpha Security products to prevent shoplifting? One word explains it all – versatility.

Alpha Security retail anti-theft devices are created to be the solution to all of your individual inventory needs. One size fits all might work with some things, but not to prevent shoplifting. In order to truly protect your inventory assets, you need to have retail anti-theft devices that are specific to your needs.

For example, why use a conventional hard tag on your jewelry when you have options of either the Alpha Jewel Lok or the Alpha Fashion2 product? The Alpha Jewel Lok is designed to attach a retail anti-theft device onto the actual merchandise, not the accessory cards. The Alpha Fashion2 alarm is a small hard tag that will do a much better job at keeping your accessories and jewelry safe than the larger conventional tags.

Alpha Security didn’t just stop with the jewelry and accessory department. They created viable solutions in each department and also in several different types or retail. From clothing to liquor to grocery, there is a solution for almost every way to prevent shoplifting.

Visit the Loss Prevention Store for Alpha 2Alarm, Alpha 3Alarm, Alpha Fashion2, Alpha Jewel Lok, Alpha Nano Gate,  Alpha Shark Tag, Alpha Spider Wrap and other retail anti-theft devices from Alpha Security to use in conjunction with your Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system that can help you prevent shoplifting in your business.

High Performance Vehicle – Prevent Shoplifting

What do cars and clothes have in common? Both have alarms on them that people have stopped paying attention to. Retail theft prevention needs to find a way to get past the false alarm and really start to prevent shoplifting.

Alpha Security systems are designed with a retail anti-theft device (like their Alpha 2 Alarm or the Alpha 3 Alarm) and some sort of transmission system like a pedestal or the Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate.

These components come in a variety of applications and specializations. They also provide specific levels of protection.

For an item like a high theft, expensive handbag you might want an Alpha 3 Alarm. The alarm will activate not only if the tag is tampered with, but will also provide an audible directly from the tag if the handbag is removed from the store without being deactivated. It is handy if the bag is concealed as the method of theft.

If your retail anti-theft device needs are simple, use an Alpha 2 Alarm product. It will only activate if tampered with and the door alarms will sound if not deactivated. That is good for products where someone tries to take merchandise out of the box/packaging to steal it, like electronics or power tools.

Visit the Loss Prevention Store for Alpha 2Alarm, Alpha 3Alarm, Alpha Fashion2, Alpha Jewel Lok, Alpha Nano Gate,  Alpha Shark Tag, Alpha Spider Wrap and other retail anti-theft devices from Alpha Security to use in conjunction with your Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system that can help you prevent shoplifting in your business.

A Little Something For You – Alpha 2 Alarm

When I picture EAS alarms, I have images of hard plastic tags with pins designed for clothing stores or stuck inside of DVDs. These tags set off the alarms at the doors at the big retail shops that need them to prevent shoplifting. What doesn’t come to mind is liquor stores using retail anti theft devices for security in their stores. 

Obviously, the little plastic tags and pins are completely ineffective on a glass liquor or wine bottle. As a small business owner with limited resources, there is no room for error or for the margin loss incurred by the theft of even one bottle. It is shame that these hardworking shop owners were left with minimal protection. 

Luckily, Alpha Security changed all of that. They created several retail anti theft devices specifically designed for liquor and wine bottles. Alpha Security created a line of bottle locks that range from small clear caps to steel bands all embedded with EAS tags. Some of them even boast the alarms (think Alpha 2 Alarm) hidden inside. 

The Alpha 2 Alarm will sound at the exit doors, as well as sounding inside the store if the Alpha 2 alarm is tampered with. 

Visit the Loss Prevention Store for Alpha 2Alarm, Alpha 3Alarm, Alpha Fashion2, Alpha Jewel Lok, Alpha Nano Gate,  Alpha Shark Tag, Alpha Spider Wrap and other retail anti-theft devices from Alpha Security to use in conjunction with your Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system that can help you prevent shoplifting in your business.
