An Expansion Pack – Retail Anti-Theft Devices

Alpha Security is an industry leader for retail anti-theft devices. One of the reasons why they stand out among other companies whose products prevent shoplifting is their ability to expand.

Your store probably has started out with a basic EAS system. You use towers at the entrance/ exit doors and Alpha 3 alarm retail anti-theft devices on your merchandise.

Now that some time has passed, the thieves (shoplifters or employees) are starting to get creative in how they steal from your store. They might try to take merchandise into the restrooms or out of the back stock room.  It is no longer as simple as protecting your main exit doors.

Since you already have the Alpha 3 alarm products in place, it is easy to expand out and start using the Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate in these alternative exit points.

The small design is the perfect fit for back exits and restrooms. The Alpha Nano Gate has a visible indicator light so passers by know that it is working. There is also a battery backup that prevents the system from being tampered with.

Out of Bounds – Alpha 3 Alarm

Working in a mall setting, it can be a challenge apprehending shoplifters. It was even worse before we started using the Alpha 3 Alarm products by Alpha Security for our retail anti-theft devices.

I should begin by saying that our primary goal is always to recover the stolen merchandise. Given the choice between recovering our product and apprehending a shoplifter, we will always get our product back first. It is purely a financial decision – we want to recover our financial loss. That can include everything from trying to prevent shoplifting before it happens, to apprehending  a shoplifter.

We started to use the Alpha 3 Alarm retail anti-theft device for the simple reason that it is easier to track down our merchandise. When a shoplifter steals an item, we have to wait until he exits our store before we can apprehend. Unfortunately, we now have to contend with all of the mall shoppers. If the shoplifter starts to run, they can easily get lost in the crowd.

Not anymore though. The Alpha 3 Alarm gives an audible signal that lets us follow the product, even if the shoplifter discards the merchandise along the way. We can recover our product, even if the shoplifter manages to escape.

Since you already use Alpha 3 alarm to reduce theft it is easy to expand out and start using the Alpha Nano Gate to prevent losses at these alternative exit points.

The small design is the perfect fit for back exits and restrooms. The Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate has a battery backup that prevents the system from being tampered with.

Find Your Silver Lining – Alpha 3 Alarm

Since the beginning of time, we have been bartering and selling wares to our neighbors and communities. Since the beginning of time, there have been those who are bound and determined to find ways to steal those wares. Shopkeepers have since been forced to find ways to prevent shoplifting.

If you fast forward to modern day methods, you will find one in particular has been a little difficult to combat – foil lined bags or jackets. If retail anti-theft devices (like an EAS tag) are concealed in the foil lining of those bags or jackets, it potentially will not register an alarm like it is supposed to. The thief can remove the tag at their leisure in their own private surroundings.

Alpha Security realized that this has been an ongoing problem and has made a new series of retail anti-theft devices including the Alpha 3 Alarm.

They have performed a series of tests where they wrap one of their Alpha 3 Alarm tags in a layer of foil. They measure the results and work up to four layers of foil. The second added layer creates a small bubble that the Alpha 3 Alarm tag doesn’t register in. However, increasing the layers does not increase that bubble.
