Did you know that 1% of all retail business revenue is lost yearly due to crime-related incidences? Although this figure may seem small, it can make a massive difference over a full financial year. It is a fact that all retail owners need to accept wherever there are shops, there is the likelihood of shoplifters. This is true for all retail stores, whether it’s fashion, homewares, electronics or bookshops; your shop is always at risk of theft or vandalism. A reliable integrated security system can help safeguard your business against these revenue losses. An effective retail security system uses a few different security hardware and software products so that you can manage your retail stock and activities within your store as closely as possible.
At Adeva Security, we recommend a combination of different security systems to best secure your store against the possibility of theft and vandalism. This commonly starts with the use of robbery-deterring CCTV cameras. These are placed at all entry points and are usually large and easily visible to deter potential intruders. We also recommend smaller cameras within the store, allowing you to monitor day-to-day activities within the shop, including staff movements. We also recommend using software that tracks your employee’s transactions to ensure no revenue loss due to workers giving away items or goods without the permission of management and ownership. A sound security system also comes in handy for insurance claims. With a quality security system, the vast majority of your retail store should be monitored at all times, which means if anything is stolen, there should be irrefutable evidence of this on your CCTV system.
For our retail security packages, we ensure that we use only the very best products to give you the utmost confidence that your security system will work properly and protect you against potential theft and vandalism. We suggest a Hikvision camera for a shop, ideal for small to medium-sized retail stores.

CCTV (closed-circuit television) and RFID (radio-frequency identification) are commonly used for loss prevention in retail and other industries. In recent years, CCTV has become increasingly popular as a preferred loss prevention solution over RFID.
One reason for this trend is that CCTV is more effective at identifying and deterring theft. CCTV systems use high-resolution cameras and advanced software to provide clear, reliable footage that can be used to identify perpetrators and assist in investigations. On the other hand, RFID relies on tags attached to items and can be detected by scanners. While RFID can be useful for tracking inventory and identifying things removed from their designated areas, it is not as effective at identifying individuals or deterring theft.
Another reason for the shift towards CCTV is that it is more flexible and adaptable than RFID. CCTV systems can be customised to meet the specific needs of a business, with cameras placed in strategic locations to provide optimal coverage. On the other hand, RFID systems are more limited in terms of placement and require a specific infrastructure to function.
In summary, CCTV is becoming a preferred loss prevention solution over RFID due to its effectiveness at identifying and deterring theft and its flexibility and adaptability.
