What is a security tag
A security tag consists of a very small device that emits a radio signal of high frequency. This is something that can easily be turned off by store officials. The signal from the security tag is released all the time and therefore it is not possible for a customer to leave the store without paying for the product. The tag gives off an alarm at the exit if you try taking a product without paying for it. Security tags are suitable for small products that can easily be concealed like video games and cases for DVDs and CDs. Deactivating the security tags is possible only when the product is bought. Deactivation is done by the use of a magnet that is highly powered and it works by neutralizing the signal.
Types of security tags
Benefit denial tags see the stolen merchandise negatively impacted when the thief tries to remove the tag. The most common form is ink dye tags which release indelible ink when the tag is tampered with, effectively rendering the stolen item useless.
EAS(electronic article surveillance) tags
Used by 73 per cent of retailers according to the most recent Global Retail Theft Barometer, EAS security tags are the most effective tag type to combat theft.
The EAS system sees tags in communication with an antenna housed near the entrance to a store. When the tagged item comes into proximity of this antenna, an alarm sounds, alerting staff to a potential threat.
Visual tags give the appearance that an EAS system is in place but do not actually have a receiver that communicates with an antenna.
This means they offer a visual deterrent for shoplifters rather than sounding an alarm and alerting staff when an item is being stolen.
