The retail sector continues generating most of its income in physical establishments, despite the pandemic situation caused by Covid-19. Meanwhile, the rate of losses attributed to theft or staff errors continues to rise. The joint implementation of CCTV, Access Control, IoT and Alarm systems has proven to be the most effective solution. For this reason, By Demes introduces the SmartRetailSec retail security system: a global solution that optimizes daily operations, improves the customer experience and allows a unified control of all security and home automation systems.
The importance of security systems in shopping centers, supermarkets and stores
The main cause of losses in the retail sector is due to thefts committed by customers and employees. Although most establishments currently already have a video surveillance system, it is not so common for them to be complemented with intrusion or access control systems, which significantly reduces their effectiveness in preventing theft.
It is also important to consider the resources that are allocated to the different daily operations carried out by the staff, in general those operations that are more complex to automate separately, such as access control to warehouses and changing rooms, light control, control of air quality, cold storage status, connection and disconnection of the alarm, etc. In most cases, these operations are not centralized.
On the other hand, we must also consider the change of habits by the consumer, who expects an increasingly satisfactory shopping experience. That's when the implementation of home automation through IoT devices comes into play.
SmartRetailSec Global Ecosystem Solution
Unifying security and IoT management in the retail sector is now possible thanks to the SmartRetailSec solution. It is applicable to shopping centers, department stores and supermarkets, but also to clothing stores, restaurants and conventional stores.
It includes VESTA, Grade 2 panels, sensors and IoT devices, but it is also possible to integrate and automate third-party devices with the IoT Z-Wave protocol with SmartRetailSec. Another key aspect is the integration with Dahua video surveillance cameras and the new SALTO Systems access control devices.
We can automate a wide variety of functions: authorize staff to open the store by geolocation, verify the occupancy status before allowing customers to enter certain areas, or configure scenes to turn lights on and off when arming or disarming the alarm system. We can also configure an effective access control of the workers through a mobile device or tag, keep the log of the openings and control the temperature of the cold rooms or the air quality.
Advanced functions with live reports to the ARC and the control center of all stores, accessible from the same mobile device. This results in costs reduction, use of less resources and employee time, and at the same time improving competitiveness.
