What are EAS Tags and How do They Work?

Most people in the world of retail surveillance and security know what EAS tags are, but a good number of people don’t know the finer details. Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) is a term used for theft prevention in retail stores, and in libraries. A wide variety of items can have EAS tags affixed to them, and there are multiple form factor types available. The most common ones are pins that go through the item that are usually attached on to the product’s tags with a looping wire.

In each of these types, all products utilize an EAS security tag upon arrival at the store where they need to be deactivated as soon as the respected item is purchased. Stores that utilize EAS tags have gate readers at entry/exit points with a generated field around the area to detect EAS transponder signals that haven’t been deactivated.

Finding the Right EAS and RFID Tags

When looking for EAS tags and RFID tags, there are different options retailers can invest in. CONTROLTEK offers effective security solutions that help prevent shoplifting for apparel, shrink wrapped items, sporting goods, eyewear, footwear and a plethora of other products. These EAS tags and RFID tags are compatible with AM and RF systems, and some work with RFID technology. For example, the SHRINKBUSTER and SHRINKBUSTER MINI offer ironclad anti-theft protection for sporting goods, outerwear, apparel, and footwear. CONTROLTEK has a wide ranging line of RFID tags and EAS tags, and of the entire roster the SHRINKBUSTER boasts the highest detection rate making it a prime choice for retailers across the country. The SHRINKBUSTER has a number of other benefits that include lightweight yet durable construction that doesn’t interfere with a shopper’s ability to try the item on. It also saves employees a great deal of time at checkout, as it is easy to both remove and apply, it has an optional lanyard for expanded uses, and comes with an option for RFID.

RFID Tags for Delicates

According to loss prevention statistics, 1 in 11 people located in the US are shoplifters. And more than 80 percent of the time adult shoplifters target delicates such as eyewear, lingerie, belts, hats, gloves, wallets, scarves, and footwear because the items are small in size making them easy to hide, and they are high-end when it comes to retail / monetary value. Thankfully, retail brands are able to invest in special RFID tags designed for unique items such as these, through the innovations to come out of CONTROLTEK. One of the best-selling RFID tags for smaller, delicate items is the SLIMGUARD, which also works on AM and RF. This RFID tag can be used with a lanyard or a pin, despite its slip profile it is very robust and durable, and it is extremely versatile.

EAS Tags with Ink as a Deterrent

One way to simply discourage shoplifters from stealing apparel is to apply an EAS tag with ink designed to explode the contents all over the garment when one tampers with the tag. The INKGUARD is ready to put shoplifters in their place with two powerful components: the internal ink that’s designed to explode upon tampering, and the EAS technology ready to stop thieves dead in their tracks.

Retailers turn to CONTROLTEK for this EAS tag to secure products such as designer wear, denim, coats, outerwear, sportswear, apparel, designer handbags and more. The visual deterrence with this EAS tag is highly effective, as all it takes is a glance and shoplifters know exactly what will happen if they attempt to remove the tag, making the item they are considering stealing worthless to them.

Padlock RFID Tags, Anti Theft Devices for Retail Stores

Padlock RFID tags are popular choices for managers and leadership teams seeking anti theft devices for retail stores who want to safeguard luggage, bags, and handbags. In addition, high-quality padlock style RFID tags also help prevent the loss of goods such as accessories, footwear, hardware, belts, and outerwear.
