The Synergy Series, comprised of network-ready, interconnected devices, helps maximize retailers’ Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) investments by providing a clear migration path from EAS to RFID technology and by gathering valuable shopper, inventory and EAS intelligence sensor data to drive better store performance through real-time visibility across the store. Synergy seamlessly integrates different AM, RFID, IP/Video and Infrared technologies, which feed critical and actionable data to Tyco’s TrueVUE reporting platform for increased store intelligence and optimal retailer value. Its data intelligence capabilities also offer retailers a building block to future Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
Acousto-Magnetic(AM) technology guarantees superior performance and high pick rate that can be deployed in single, dual, split or quad configurations to cover door openings up to 40ft wide. Layer this technology with the integration of powerful RFID beam-steering antennas and IR technology, the Synergy system can determine tag directionality and achieve up to 99% read accuracy that helps retailers gain item-level visibility into all the merchandise passing through the system. This brings valuable insights that have never been available before anywhere.
Leveraging the Infrared traffic sensors embedded into the pedestals, retailers can track in and out traffic, calculate conversion rates, and report on the number of customers entering stores. And integration of IP video allows retailers to capture video of alarm events, and coupled with RFID enabled visibility into specific item detail of a loss event, is extremely useful for post forensic analysis and further improving loss prevention.
Its powerful 9060 Controller, the engine behind Synergy, has an innovative Digital Signal Processing (DSP) engine to help ensure optimal performance, controls up to four pedestals to protect wide or multiple exits, and has more accurate people counting and data reporting due to improved processing and expanded memory. It is 10% smaller, over 50% lighter, and uses 25% less power than prior Sensormatic controllers. Having a powerful controller (9060) with a network ready card that plugs into the controller enables retailers to leverage Synergy’s full interconnectivity with its TrueVUE reporting platform for EAS, Traffic and Inventory data separately or in combination which is a unique benefit for retailers to gain actionable intelligence.
