What are the differences between Checkpoint Systems and Alpha High Theft Solutions?

What are the differences between Checkpoint Systems and Alpha High Theft Solutions 1 alarm, 2 alarm and 3 alarm solutions?

The following is a brief explanation of the Alpha High Theft Solutions 1, 2 and 3 Alarm products functionality.

1,2, and 3 alarm solutions encompass individual and combined security solutions for whatever your loss issue is.

The functionality begins with our Alpha 1 Alarm device and it will activate the Checkpoint Systems Electronic Article Surveillance antenna if a breach occurs.

The Alpha 2 Alarm device has added security that in addition to activating upon breach it will activate if the device is cut or even tampered with. The cable is coated and made from aircraft strength cable for extreme durability and reliability. The coating on the cable not only protects the merchandise from theft but protects it from the device.

For our most complete device the Alpha 3 Alarm Includes the same as 1 and 2 alarm actions, activation upon breach and activation upon tampering or cutting, It also will continue alarming with an extended range protection at 95 Decibels for up to 10 minutes after shoplifter has left the premises. The standard decibel is a ratio of how much acoustical energy we hear with and for human conversation is 35 to 45 DCB. This technology provides an extra piece of mind when added to your security solution to stop shoplifting.

Display Merchandise Protection


How can display merchandise be kept from being moved, tampered with, or taken from the store?


Up until now, the only way that merchandise could be displayed and still have it be accessible to the customer was to use a system that used wires or cables that directly kept the products tied down. In many cases, this caused a lot of tangled wires and also presented a confusing display to the customer. Usually only one or two display items need to be secured in a specific area of the store. These items also need to be accessible by the staff to be able to move the products easily and quickly.

Because more and more of these needs became evident by vendors, Alpha developed an adjustable 2 Alarm cable lock with a built in sensor to aid retailers with this specific issue. Alpha took this adjustable cable lock a step further by placing a sensor tip on the end of the cable with a micro-tamper switch with an adhesive pad. This allows the display merchandise to be protected by the cable lock and also have the sensor tip anchor to the display fixture which then allows the customer to examine the product and get a feel for it without actually removing it from the store. If by any chance the customer attempts to remove the item or cut the cable lock, the sensor will set off the 95 decibel alarm.

Typically this Alpha Adjustable Cable Lock is available in 2 Alarm configurations. Another unique use for these cable locks is to utilize them by not directly anchoring it to the display platform. For example, a cordless drill with a battery can be protected by wrapping the cable lock around the handle of the drill while the sensor pad is attached to the battery. If the battery is tampered with, the sensor will alarm. These cable locks are also quite versatile in size and are available in 18 inch and 48 inch configurations. The adhesive pads and sensor tips are both replaceable and are available separately for purchase.

Alpha High Theft Solutions has developed a mini hard tag that has all the same features as the standard Alpha 2 or 3 alarm hard tag models.

The Alpha Mini 3 alarm hard tag features a flashing LED light that serves as a deterrent to a shoplifter and that the device is armed. In the occasion that the device is tampered with, the 95 decibel alarm will sound and alert the staff in the store of a possible issue.

The dimensions of the mini hard tag enable it to be used in various items.
