Retail loss prevention and asset protection teams are faced with many challenges, but perhaps one of the biggest pain points is getting the solutions delivered when they need them. Each retailer’s challenges are unique and finding the right solution is vital for success, however, a solution is only effective if it is deployed and operating. From the pandemic to component shortages and supply chain issues, getting solutions has been a challenge for retailers, but we’re here to change that. At CONTROLTEK, we are on a mission to ensure retailers have exceptional, technology-agnostic EAS and RFID solutions that are in stock and ready to be deployed to support their unique needs.
CONTROLTEK’s CT360 EAS and RFID Solutions
Whether your asset protection program requires AM, RF, RFID, or a combination of technologies, CONTROLTEK offers a comprehensive portfolio of EAS and RFID tags and systems to fit your needs. We recognize that there is no one‑size‑fits‑all approach to asset protection, so our team of experts use our design thinking approach to truly understand your challenges and partner side-by-side to assist in finding the right solution.
Every detail of our EAS and RFID solutions are built to perform, starting with the high‑performing technology—which can be tailored to meet your requirements—to the sleek yet durable hardware built to keep up with the demands of any retail environment. And with our First Time Right approach to solutions deployment, we deliver high‑quality tags and systems on time and install your systems right on the very first visit, thus saving you time, minimizing the impact to your business, and saving you money.
Meet the SAM Family
CONTROLTEK’s broad line of AM systems boast sleek design, state‑of‑the-art AM technology, and a variety of installation options to fit your retail environment. Whether it is securing large entry points, requiring a concealed solution, or using multiple technologies for the best asset protection, our SAM systems stand up to the test. From acrylic and aluminum designs, 6- and 9-foot ranges, door‑mounted and “invisible” floor installations, and even an integrated camera for enhanced visibility, the SAM Family AM system offering has you covered.
The New Standard in RF
CONTROLTEK’s SRF RF system boasts the same high-quality and sleek design as our AM system, yet it is equipped with state-of‑the-art RF technology. The high‑performing software can be customized to meet your unique asset protection needs, including the option to upgrade to RFID to future-proof your operations, while the design creates a streamlined aesthetic that will stand the test of time in your fast-paced retail environment.
The Most Versatile System in Retail
For retailers, EAS poses an unexpected problem because it requires you to choose between using AM and RF technology in your stores; however, you no longer have to choose. CONTROLTEK’s Omni SAM+RF system combines the power of both AM and RF without compromising on performance. Also equipped with the option to upgrade to RFID, Omni SAM+RF combines all available technologies into one system to give retailers the ability to use any EAS tag on the market, while opening the possibility of automated inventory management, real‑time asset tracking, and improved customer insights for the forward-thinking retailer.
Next Generation RFID as EAS
InFlight RFID is the world’s thinnest and most advanced overhead RFID as EAS reader on the market, combining state‑of‑the-art UHF RFID with Time-of-Flight (ToF) in the form of light detection and ranging (LIDAR) sensors. This system accurately tracks speed and direction of merchandise movement, virtually eliminating false alarms. Equipped with an integrated variable alarm, the system can alert in different sequencing based on the number of assets leaving the store. This can help decipher between single item theft and organized retail crime theft, in real-time. And with built-in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), the reader can serve as a hub for other handheld readers syncing data for automated inventory management.
High Performing AM, RF, RFID Tagging Solutions
We offer a vast selection of tagging solutions for protecting a wide range of products, from eyewear, handbags, clothing, and accessories, to liquor and electronics. Our AM, RF, and RFID tags and labels distinguish themselves by their high detection rate, ease of use, sturdy construction, and budget-friendliness. Our experts are here to help you choose the right EAS tags for your stores for maximum protection and deterrence. Some of the tags we offer that retailers love the most include:
- InkGuard: An ink tag designed to stand out and let would-be thieves know they will not succeed at shoplifting in your store.
- The SurfaceTag: The go-to solution to protect boxed merchandise while eliminating product lockdown, not taking up too much shelf space, or interfering with the customer experience.
