How To Tackle Retail Theft

Retailers across the US are currently experiencing high-level inventory theft, leading to increased demand for electronic security systems.

How big of a problem is retail theft?

Shockingly, statistics show that 1 in 11 people in the US is a shoplifter, and more than 10 million people have been arrested for this offense over the past five years, according to the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention

Yet, actions against shoplifters and dishonest employees have decreased significantly.

Retailers need to stem the flow of losses to theft; this is where LotGuard’s surveillance technology helps retailers take control of the situation.

LotGuard How To Tackle Retail Theft

Remote Monitoring

Video surveillance is one of the most powerful security tools for retailers.

When paired with remote monitoring they are a 24/7 virtual security guard.

This type of video surveillance can do the job faster, cheaper, and more efficiently than traditional security plans that rely solely on guards.

Our LotGuard Mobile Surveillance Units deliver live and recorded video via 4G LTE. The video can be accessed anytime, anywhere, with any connected device.

When a camera is being 'remotely monitored,’ the video stream from the unit is transmitted directly to our Interactive Surveillance Operations Center (ISOC), where a team of security professionals will receive an alarm or alert from your site, immediately review the footage to verify the alarm and then take appropriate action.

This action will include capturing as much video evidence of the activity occurring and challenging any criminal activity through audio alerts, live voice down functionality, and even the dispatching of guards or local law enforcement.

Typically, these alarms are generated via Video Analytics - intelligent rule-based surveillance algorithms built into LotGaurd cameras that detect movement at your properties.
