EAS Technology Integrated into Janam's XG100 Rugged Mobile Computers

Janam Technologies announced it is integrating Sensormatic electronic article surveillance (EAS) tags from ADT Security Services within the body of all of its new XG100 series of gun-shaped rugged mobile computers. The devices from Janam scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly to enterprise networks.

Janam reports that in partnering with ADT, a provider of retail loss prevention technologies, it is the first mobile computer company in the world to meet loss prevention challenges with an integrated EAS tag solution.

The Janam-ADT approach is designed to enable retailers and other businesses to utilize a Sensormatic detection system to proactively protect against theft or the accidental removal of Janam's mobile computing devices. According to the companies, if someone attempts to exit a store or warehouse by walking through a Sensormatic detection system while carrying Janam's XG100 device, the integrated EAS tag will trigger the system's alarm.

In announcing the integration, Janam cited a survey conducted last year by the University of Florida, noting that retailers in 2007 lost almost $12 billion to approximately 27 million shoplifters. The company noted also that a proliferation of anonymous seller Internet web sites specializing in used equipment makes it even easier for thieves to find buyers for non-traditional items.
