Simply throwing one's hands in the air and excepting stock disappearing from shelves is ‘all part of being in retail’ isn’t the attitude needed to turn your retail outlet into a successful business.

Stop thieves in their tracks with an EAS Security System from Easitag.

Put simply, Electronic Article Surveillance is using technology to stop theft attempts from your store by attaching electronic tags, stickers or labels to your products that trigger an alarm system if the product goes past installed detection gates at the entrance of the store.

When goods have been paid for, tags and labels will be removed or deactivated by the store sales staff before the customer leaves the store. Often alarm detection gates will also be installed at the entrance of toilets to stop would-be thieves from taking items in there and hiding them on their persons.

How do EAS gates work?

There are two main formats of EAS gate technologies in use in Australia and these are Radio frequency systems and Acousto-magnetic systems (Radio Frequency systems make up the bulk of EAS systems you see in retail stores). These both differ slightly in the way they work but the concept is still the same.

When an EAS label or tag goes past a gate a signal is sent to the alarm system which trips either a light (usually an LED light), an alarm sound or both. This alerts store employees that an item or product is leaving the store without being deactivated or the tag removed at the point of sale.

It’s hard to believe the release of the very first iPhone was only 13 years ago. If you had told the average consumer fifteen years ago that in the space of little over a decade, almost the entire population of the planet would have a mobile device that could give them instant access to the internet, pay for products, stream their favourite TV shows and music, use GPS to help them navigate, take high-quality video and replace a multitude of electronic and digital products, you could very well have been considered a nut case. Only a few short years later we’ve now come to rely on this technology and take it for granted in our everyday lives. The proliferation of mobile apps and products that integrate with mobile phones has created an entirely new market of opportunity, not only for business but for marketers and advertisers too.

5G is gradually being rolled out in Australia over the next 12 months or so, bringing with it a range of new possibilities. With the advent of 5G we’re going to see better speeds and more security around mobile payments that previously haven’t been possible. This means a surefire uptake in people tapping their devices to exchange information and we will soon see this as a standard procedure with mobile devices across Australia.
