Ultra•Post Self-Contained Pedestal

 Ultra•Post Self-Contained Pedestal  

Energy-efficient pedestal saves on power without sacrificing performance.

The energy-efficient Ultra•Post provides superior Sensormatic AM EAS antitheft protection with up to 1.8m (6ft) of coverage between pedestals. The onboard electronics are contained within the base cover of the primary pedestal, eliminating the need for an external controller, and reducing installation and maintenance costs. The integrated audio and visual alarms notify store personnel if protected merchandise passes through the detection zone.

The optional integrated Traffic Counter add-on device provides visibility into shopper traffic patterns and directional traffic information that is customizable to control alarm events. This add-on also provides visibility into shopper directionality by discerning between inbound and outbound traffic and helps virtually eliminate unintended EAS alarms triggered by shoppers carrying tagged goods near EAS detectors. The integrated Traffic Counter also provides the “power-on- demand” feature that places this dual detection system into low-power standby mode during periods of low or no traffic activity to reduce power consumption up to 86% when in this mode.

Through system configuration, “Tags-too-Close” is an offered feature developed to help store associates better manage merchandising of tagged goods at the front of the store. This feature helps reduce unnecessary and costly service calls and decreases nuisance alarms to enhance the shopper experience. Another system-configured feature is Jammer Detection. This software triggers a pedestal alarm as soon as an electronic signal from a Jammer device is detected; helping eliminate the threat of would-be thieves using this method.

The optional Advertising Upgrade Kit leverages valuable pedestal real estate at the store entrance to reach a large number of shoppers on-the-move. The easy-to-install poster helps draw shoppers into the retail environment with advertisements, modern designs or simple low-cost printed graphics. This add-on also provides an opportunity to generate additional marketing co-op profit by biding out this valuable advertising space to vendors.
