Clear Fazor Security System
This elegant tower will detect tags 3 ft to the right and left of the tower, making it good to use on single or double doors. Many stores will use two of these, one on each side of a double door entrance for a wider unobstructed feel to the entrance.
Ink tags come in many sizes and shapes to accommodate any need. These can be used as the pin into your current tags to make the items you are tagging more secure.
What is wrong with this picture?
Yes, you guessed it! There is metal too close to the system. A metal filing cabinet to right of tower can cause false alarms. Clear all heavy metal items at least 3 ft from the system. Another type of metal that is not normally thought of as metal, is mannequins. Many times they have a heavy metal stand and a rod that goes up one leg to steady them. This metal can also affect the system and needs to be kept 3 ft away. The other issue with mannequins is that someone can leave a tag on the clothing it is dressed in, causing major false alarms if left too close to the towers.
False alarms here for 2 reasons…
Although they have done a good job of keeping the system 18″ away from the door frame, the electrical cord goes straight up the wall to plug into the ceiling too close to the tower. Keep all vertical wires away from the towers at least 3 feet. The way to fix this is to run the wire along the wall to the right at least 3 feet then up the wall and back to the outlet in the ceiling. The bundle of blue wire in round loops is also a problem and must be straightened out as the tower will feel it like a tag.
Giving back to your community is key to a healthy business. Let us know the charities you and your employees support. Here are ones that Sensortags.com is blessed to be able to support.
First Baptist Food Bank
This church, as many in our area, has a local food bank for those in need. We have helped supply a particular need of theirs for breakfast cereals. Besides the boxed variety, we purchase oatmeal by the 50 lb bag and ziplock bags. The food pantry re-packages it into gallon size bags and gets it to those in need of a hot breakfast. By doing this, we are able to help more people with the same amount of money.
Everyone deserves a chance to compete and feel the joy of success and the camaraderie of teamwork. We are blessed to have the games here at Indiana State University every year. Sensortags is glad to donate to the cause.
Fraternal Order of Police
Sensortags likes that this charity works with kids. They organize “Shop with a Cop” to get warm coats for kids in need while bonding with a police officer. Some of the funds from this charity also go to support the families of police officers shot and or killed while on duty as well. We can not thank our police enough for all they do to keep our community safe.
Security Specialist, Susann Shanks, wants to share with you the new booklet, “How to choose your security system” We have it in a PDF file that can easily be sent by email, so just give her a call or an email today for your free copy.
Just a heads up, we will be closed for Thanksgiving as usual. Thank you for your business. We know you have a choice where you do business, and we hope that you will continue to allow us to meet your needs and exceed your expectations. We appreciate the opportunity to help keep your store secure and give you the peace of mind that your security systems are doing their job.
