We all know about the time consuming process of ordering, organising, displaying and managing our product merchandise with the hope that they sell out and generate decent sales revenue. But what happens when on the rare occasion, a customer decides they want to steal the products on display because your current security strategy are not covering blindspots or you are a target of a stealing syndicate.
Did you know that according to the Australian Institute of Criminology, they estimated that customer theft accounted for 30-50% of product losses and staff theft accounted also for roughly the same amount? During the end of year accounting done by all businesses, large department stores found that they lose up to 1.25% of their product stock, while smaller boutique owners can lose up to 7% of their stock inventory. While the percentage figures may appear, the money that has been lost can be quite large. For example, if your turnover is $200,000 for a small boutique, that is $14,000 of your hard earned money GONE!
Main security threats your business may experience throughout the course of your Product Retail business are, for example: fraud behaviour, unexpected robberies and harm to staff, staff theft of inventory and/or shoplifting.
We have years of experience installing alarms, access control, CCTV surveillance and intercom systems for product retailers. Depending on how comprehensive and large the scale of your business is, we have a solution for all product retail store sizes.
There are six main security areas that your Product Retail business may need to look at closely and consider implementing on your business location.
These are: Alarm and Prompt Intruder Phone Alert, Staff Panic Button, Smoke Alarm Sensor, Back to Base Monitoring, Controlled Access to certain areas, CCTV Cameras with minimum 2 megapixel resolution and 80 degrees viewing angle with infrared distance up to 30 metres.

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.
