Article surveillance

Electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems help prevent retail theft. Although these type of solutions should put off shoplifters, it is important to retailers that they do not pose an obstruction to customers. Century Europe provides a wide range of EAS solutions that offer a positive shopping experience and maximum product protection.

What is Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS)

Electronic article surveillance (EAS) alarm systems are triggered when someone leaves a store or building with a product having an active tag or label attached to it. EAS systems are often applied to prevent shoplifting in stores or theft of valuable properties from e.g. public buildings. There are several types of EAS solutions available. Century Europe’s EAS product range consists of:

  • AM (acoustic-magnetic) systems
  • RF (radio frequency) systems
  • Systems combined with RFID
  • Systems that are RFID-ready
  • RFID only
