Super EAS Tags

waveDefeating EAS tags is startlingly easy. Despite confidence in their widespread use, a thief only needs to spend a few minutes online to discover how to overcome them. A new tag product by WG claims to add unprecedented security to EAS, and do it cheaply enough to be used in penny-conscious retail. Do these claims hold water? We dig into details in our 'Super EAS Tags' note.

IP Cash Drawer

IPcashdrawerWith 'Mobile POS' systems on the mind of retailers worldwide, one of the nagging problems is how to securely store cash when no central register is present. One of the world's largest cash drawer manufacturers has designed a product that features an ethernet controller built in to a standard drawer unit. Is this a novel solution to an emerging problem? See our 'IP Cash Drawer' review to find out.

ScanCam

scancamNot all loss prevention solutions are expensive. We saw this firsthand with 'ScanCam', a straightforward sweethearting detector that can be used with any video surveillance system. However, even though it is simple, is it effective? Check out the pros and cons in our 'Inexpensive Sweethearting Solution' note.
