Sentinel Technology

Sentinel represents the greatest leap in asset protection technology in quite some time. Pedestal technology has dominated the EAS world for so long, we started thinking, "why can't we eliminate pedestals and antennas altogether?"

The result became Sentinel, a robust security and tracking system that eliminates all pedestals yet secures all your high-risk items. This unique smart technology is designed to contain all tagged merchandise within a specified area without the use of cables of lock up. Using readers installed on or near the ceiling and sophisticated tags that communicate with the readers, tagged products can move freely within the Sentinel readers' detection range. Only when the tags are tampered with or leave the secured perimeter will the Sentinel system alarm.

Sentinel is a very discreet system which works as a standalone system, or can work in conjunction with your current EAS system, providing an extra layer of protection for your most valuable goods. The Sentinel comes with software which displays movement of each tag. This allows for stockroom, dressing room, and other sensitive area monitoring.

Sentinel's application exceed retail stores, as it can secure any type of good or even people, from leaving an area. Hospitals and correctional facilities can be secured with Sentinel to track the movement of medicine, medical equipment, prisoners, patients...the possibilities are endless with Sentinel.

Sentinel Components

The main component of the Sentinel system are the Sentinel Readers, called RADs (Radiate And Detect). All RADs communicate wirelessly, making installation extremely simple. The RADs are placed throughout the store's ceiling to create a large secured perimeter zone to ensure free product movement within the store. There are three types of RADs, which each perform a vital function for the system to work including Field RAD, POS RAD, and EAS RAD.


Sentinel Tags

The Sentinel Tags are sophisticated devices which perform multiple functions. Each tag is engineered to "listen" to signals emitted from the RADs. Constant communication between tag and RAD ensures the alarm remains silent. The tag is designed to self-alarm at any point of signal disruption, be it tampering, not being disarmed prior to removal from the merchandise, or removal from the protected zone. When tags enter into an alarm state, they will also notify the EAS RAD to audibly alarm. Since the tag is in constant communication, if it is removed accidentally from the protected zone, once it is brought back into the zone, alarming will cease since the signal is regained. Sentinel Tags come in lanyard form, but any size or shape tag can be made into a Sentinel Tag, depending on your store's needs.
