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
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.
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
POS RAD, and
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.
