Supermarket anti-theft system solution
Supermarket: channel solution
- 1. Detector setting: the detector / antenna is set between two cash registers, and the detection antenna spacing is 70cm ~ 90cm.
- 2. Label decoder setting: a soft label decoder and an unlocking device are set on the cashier to decode the soft label and unlock the hard tag respectively, and can be used in combination with the desktop laser scanner without additional decoding board.
- 1. Obvious loss prevention effect: the channel setting scheme can give customers the best hint at the cashier: this mall is equipped with an electronic detection system. Please don’t try by example. This deterrent and warning effect is the most important function of EAS.
- 2. It is easy to judge whether the alarm is true or not: statistics show that more than 90% of the false alarms of EAS detector are caused by the improper operation of the cashier, such as the soft label is not decoded, the hard tag is not removed, etc; The accuracy of judgment can be greatly improved by the cashier’s direct participation and judgment of whether the alarm is true or not.
- 3. Harmonizing and improving the relationship with customers: since it is the cashier who participates in and judges whether the alarm is true or not at the first time, rather than the security guard (loss prevention officer), the former is easier to be accepted by customers in terms of psychological tolerance. In this way, it can improve the adverse situation between shopping malls and customers in alarm handling after the installation of EAS, So as to harmonize and improve the relationship between shopping malls and customers.
- 4. Save business area: compared with the channel outlet setting scheme and the total outlet setting scheme with buffer zone, the channel scheme combining shunting and decoding does not occupy the business area of prime locations because the detection antenna is installed in the middle of the cashier. For large comprehensive supermarkets, some areas at the exit of the cashier are often used for rent, which can also increase a lot of rent and other income.
- 5. Convenient for store layout: since the loss prevention management of the supermarket optional area is different from that of the counter area, installing the EAS antenna in the cashier channel can be easily distinguished and targeted management.
- 6. Reduce loss prevention loopholes: the total export protection is set at the entrance and exit of the gate. Customers can carry goods into and out of various places of the mall as long as they don’t go out of the gate, increasing the opportunity of commodity loss. The channel setting reduces this opportunity.
Composition of electronic anti-theft system:
It is mainly composed of detector, decoder and electronic tag, and the auxiliary equipment is also unlocking device.
The detector, decoder and tag of acoustic magnetic anti-theft system and RF anti-theft system are different.
Electronic labels are divided into soft labels and hard tags. Soft labels have low cost and are directly adhered to hard goods. Soft labels can not be reused; The one-time cost of hard tag is higher than that of soft label, but it can be reused. hard tags must be equipped with special nail extractors, which are mostly used for soft and easily penetrated articles of clothing. Most decoders are non-contact devices with a certain decoding height. When the cashier checks in or bags, the electronic label can be decoded without touching the degaussing area. There is also a device that combines the decoder and the laser bar code scanner, so that the commodity collection and decoding can be completed at one time to facilitate the work of the cashier. This method must cooperate with the laser bar code supplier to eliminate the mutual interference between the two and improve the decoding sensitivity. The detector is generally a detection system device at the entrance and exit of the mall or the cashier channel. After receiving the correct payment from a customer for a commodity, the cashier can authorize the commodity and legally leave a designated area by neutralizing the label pasted on the commodity. When the uncoded goods are taken away from the mall, the alarm will be triggered when they pass through the detector device (mostly door shape), so as to remind the cashier, customers and mall security personnel to deal with them in time.
Several important indicators of electronic anti-theft system:
1. Detection rate:
Detection rate refers to the number of alarms when a unit number of effective labels pass through different positions of the detection area in different directions.
Radio frequency: for the comprehensive supermarket, the radio frequency system will lose the alarm effect and the comprehensive alarm rate will be low if there is tin foil or metal composition on the protected goods because its soft label is ring coil type. Generally 60-80%;
Acoustic magnetic system: Advanced tuning fork oscillation principle is adopted, which is not affected by foil paper or small metal components, and the alarm rate can be greater than 95%.
2. Anti metal interference ability:
The most seriously affected by metal shielding is the radio / RF system, which may be one of the main limitations of radio / RF in practical use. The acoustic magnetic system will also be affected by metal objects. When large pieces of metal enter the detection area of the acoustic magnetic system, the system will delay the alarm.
3. Protection width:
Shopping malls need to consider the protection width of the anti-theft system to prevent the width between supports from being too narrow and affecting customers’ access. Moreover, shopping malls hope that the entrances and exits are more spacious.
The application of RF system in supermarkets is generally 90-110cm (channel width)
The application of acoustic magnetic system in supermarkets is generally 130-150 cm (channel width)
4. False positive rate:
False positive rate refers to “electromagnetic compatibility adaptability”. When the system is in normal use for a period of time, the number of false alarms caused by the influence of space electromagnetic environment or other objects is called “false alarm rate”.
The false alarm rate of domestic conventional systems is relatively high, but the new generation wide gate distance system of punard technology can ensure zero false alarm during RF operation.
The electromagnetic compatibility adaptability of acoustic magnetic anti-theft system is relatively good. But it also depends on brand and technical ability
5. Types of protected commodities:
From the protection scope of the whole department store, because many small commodity packaging papers in the supermarket contain tin foil paper or metal components, the protection soft label of the RF system is easy to shield without alarm, the number of protected commodities is relatively small, and the protection type of the acoustic magnetic system is greater than that of the RF system.
Supermarket: entrance / exit anti-theft solution
Passenger flow statistics
The passenger flow statistics system helps supermarkets monitor and analyze the customer flow into stores, and enables retailers to optimize employee resources to improve customers’ shopping experience. The data of the passenger flow statistics system also provides the transaction change rate of products sold, helps measure customers’ response to marketing, and optimizes the layout of stores. From the passenger counter overhead to the integrated passenger flow statistics from the base frame of electronic commodity anti-theft system, a series of passenger flow statistics schemes are provided. No matter how your entrance is designed, we will strive to provide you with a solution suitable for you.
Electronic commodity anti-theft system
Protect your store exits with an electronic commodity anti-theft system to prevent and monitor store pickpockets from taking unpaid goods from your store. If it is not demagnetized at the cashier, the goods protected by hard tags will alarm and inform the staff. The detection system has various designs to suit corridor or exit protection. Retailers can choose the design that suits their own stores. For products containing metals and liquids, such as cigarettes, batteries and beverages, sonomagnetic technology performs better in monitoring and operation than RF technology.
(1) The new electronic commodity anti-theft system provides.
- a. High monitoring rate to prevent goods from being stolen.
- b. Diversified design to meet the needs of stores with different styles.
(2) The intelligent electronic commodity anti-theft system enhances the performance of your electronic commodity anti-theft system.
- A. Formulate the remote service function of the electronic commodity anti-theft system for hardware upgrading and carry out system diagnosis.
- B. Once there is a problem with the equipment, the automatic alarm will be sent to the store staff.
- C. The power management of the electronic commodity anti-theft system reduces the power consumption by setting the low power support mode during the predetermined shutdown of the electronic commodity anti-theft system equipment.
Intrusion monitoring helps you monitor and warn you of any intrusion during non business hours, and helps protect your business premises through a 24-hour monitoring center. In addition, receive store opening and closing time reports to monitor staff compliance with operational guidelines.
- (1). Effective border security. The intrusion monitoring solution can be set as the maximum border security to ensure that illegal intrusion can be effectively monitored before forced intrusion and serious loss.
- (2). Maximum protection. Because the alarm trigger produces two results, one is a high DB alarm and the other is a 24-hour automatic alarm to the monitoring center, the intrusion alarm is very efficient in preventing unauthorized entry.
Install cameras at the entrance to observe video alarm videos and monitor customers entering the store. In order to improve the performance of your camera, your electronic product anti-theft system is integrated to receive alerts when alerts are triggered and it is easier to search for event video clips.
