Exacq Technologies, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, announces an integration with the Sensormatic anti-theft system from Tyco Retail Solutions. The combination of exacqVision video management system (VMS) and the Sensormatic system gives retail customers a unified Tyco solution, capturing loss event data and providing video recognition to improve loss prevention efforts.
The Sensormatic pedestals capture valuable loss prevention data to create a surveillance zone at the end of a checkout lane or at the store exit. When an alarm event occurs, the system notifies store employees when someone exits the store or if merchandise still has the electronic article surveillance (EAS) tag attached.
With the exacqVision integration, retail customers have the benefit of an added layer of video surveillance and real-time loss event insights. Retailers can view live video images of the alarm event as it occurs or search previous EAS system events and see the corresponding exacqVision video at the time the event happened. This integration enables retail store managers to quickly identify suspects for potential theft instances and improve their real-time response to shrinkage control.
This integration requires exacqVision server version 6.6 and Local Device Manager Configurator version 8.3 to connect the Sensormatic pedestals and manage data output.
