Electronic Article Surveillance: Annoy Thieves, Not Customers
Anti Theft Pedestal
Frequently Asked Questions
Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) is a technology used to prevent shoplifting. If you've ever been to a store and heard an alarm when someone was leaving, you've seen EAS in action. The system detects unpaid items in customers' pockets or bags as they exit the premises.
EAS systems work by tagging merchandise with labels or hard tags. The tags contain Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips that, if not deactivated, set off an alarm. Only store employees can remove the tags with a detacher.
EAS systems use RFID tags to detect unpaid items, but RFID is also useful for other purposes, such as tracking inventory or monitoring employee access to certain areas. RFID tags can be read from a distance, while EAS tags must be close to the reader to set off the alarm.
