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.

If you’re a retailer in Australia you understand the difficulties and challenges retailers are facing with a plateaued economy, wages having only increased slightly over the past decade and the infiltration of online shopping taking a sizable chunk of the market. There is one area however that many businesses loathe as it’s something that strikes at the heart of their business and costs Australian retailers over $2.5 billion dollars a year ( source ). What’s worse is that shrinkage seems to be on the rise with a 16% increase over the past two years (according to respondents from The Australia and New Zealand Retail Crime Survey 2019). When combined, both customer theft (shoplifting or shop stealing) and dishonest employees (internal theft) account for just under 80% of overall theft.
