Of all the potential challenges I have faced with clothing security tags, the hardest is clothing alarms. These alarms are no different than a car alarm. Over time, even the best of us have become immune to the sound of one going off in a parking garage or outside our homes.
Just like many other sensory things (sights, smells) we become immune to repeated sounds over time. Our employees similarly become immune to these alarms – especially when close to 95% of them are false alarms.
How do you solve the problem? Start with the basics of security tags on clothes. The first part is awareness. Your employees actually have to be aware of their surroundings and acknowledge when an alarm goes off.
Make sure you have consistent placement of your tags. It makes them easier for your employees to find. When your employees can find the tags, they can have a better accuracy rate of deactivating the tags thus reducing the number of false alarms.
The better you are with consistency in placing your Checkpoint tags, the better your overall performance will be. You have to train your employees to understand that your clothing security does not stop with the clothing security tags. Responding to and preventing false alarms are also a big part of their job and your success.
