Did you know that according to the Australian Institute of Criminology, typical product theft in retail stores do not just come from customers, but also from staff working on the premise? With inflated responsibilities to manage the liquor store, some staff feel they can get away with product theft, while customers are also attempting to getaway with theft when staff are not looking. According to statistics, up to 7% in revenue is lost to instore theft. That means, if you turnover $150,000, that is $10,500 that has already disappeared from potential customer and staff theft.

Other notes to take into account for the installation process

While our team are trained to install our security equipment in all types of building structures, these are the common issues we encounter when performing an onsite inspection. So please advise on the phone with our sales representative if any of the following meets your situation, so we can draw up the most efficient way to install your security system with minimal time delays and disruptions to your business.

> Please let us know if you have suspended ceilings or a concrete ceiling. Also, please let us know if your walls are also gyprock or solid cement.

> If your premises do not have a manhole for our technician to perform cabling and wiring requirements in the ceiling or roof of your business, you may need to budget an extra small fee for possible conduit or external cabling requirements

> If your premises already have cabling in place from an old security system, please let us know so we can determine if the cables and wires are available for use on the new security system. Most of the time, this is possible if the structure is relatively new. If however the old security system was installed decades ago, we may need to replace all wiring to ensure your new system works effectively on new cables and wires.
