What is Retail security?
Security applications for the retail sector are predominantly focused on loss prevention. While addressing the issue of shoplifting, security measures also create a secure environment for staff. The retail sector includes department stores, food stores and supermarkets, pharmacy / drug stores, apparel retailers, specialty chains, restaurants, and convenience stores.
Compatibility with cash registers and EPOS terminals allows integration to associate data with relevant CCTV footage provides the ability to review activity for sweet-hearting, under-rings, and other forms of staff pilfering – a deterrent for staff, and useful should disputes arise.
Overt cameras and live monitor displays act as a deterrent to shoplifters and create a level of reassurance for customers and staff.
Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS), or the tagging of articles, is a common means of loss prevention, particularly for clothing.
