Holiday decorations are causing “phantom alarms” on my Checkpoint system.


Your Checkpoint Anti-Shoplifting system is designed to detect a radio frequency (such as RF

tags and labels) tuned to 8.2 MHz. If you have placed a Christmas tree or other holiday

decoration that contains lights, metallic garland, or any other metallic items within 4 ft. of one

of the antennas, it will likely cause phantom alarms.

In addition, you should never decorate

the Checkpoint antennas with anything metallic, including any wires, foil garland, and other

items of that nature. It is always best to never place anything directly on your Checkpoint
