Retail security false alarms

I have a retail system and I am having trouble installing it.
I have an EAS system and it is false alarming
I have a loss prevention system what do I need (electrically).

New retail security systems are much easier to tune than the older models, technology as hade a huge difference, however companies like Sensormatic and checkpoint are switching to systems that only they can tune. This allows them to sell the systems cheap and make it up on the service. There are still Checkpoint compatible systems that can be self installed and tuned. Asks a good used loss prevention specialist and they will the good systems.
New_Retail_Security_SystemThe first step to any retail security system is to have a licensed electrician come out to your store and run an isolated line with a proper ground preferable on it is own circuit to an outlet within 10 feet of the exit. Use a 3 conductor BX cable with 110-15amp. This is the standard so you should not have to say anything to the electrician but it is always worth checking.

This may not be the ultimate solution; however it should be the first step. All retail security system should have be an isolated line for optimum performance. If you having false alarms make sure there is no tagged merchandise within 3 feet of your system. Do not plug any other items into the outlet that the system is plugged into. Neon lights within 5 feet of a retail security system can cause interference. There are lots of situations that can cause “noise” or interference with your detection system and the security tags.
