Phantom Alarms Caused by Holiday Decorations


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 antennas.
