The Ups and Downs – Alpha Nano Gate

Once upon a time I used only retail anti-theft devices like hard and soft tags in conjunction with my exit door towers to prevent shoplifting. For the most part, we saw very few attempts at theft because we were diligent in our tagging efforts. Things looked good for our store and our shrink results reinforced our dedication to retail anti-theft devices.

This was at a high-end retailer that I used to work for. The store had two levels with escalators going up and down in the center atrium. If anyone went up or down, we knew about it. There was no need to have anything like the Alpha Security Nano Gate at the escalators because of our great visibility.

What we could have used the Alpha Nano Gate for (if it had existed back then) was the elevator. The elevator was tucked away in a far corner right next to an exterior door.  To this day, I don’t know how much merchandise we lost out that door because someone picked up something on the second floor, went down the elevator and then scooted right out the door. It was because we had no way of monitoring the elevator or that exit door.
