Universal Surveillance Systems began like many other businesses– in the founder’s garage. In 1995 Adel Sayegh, a dedicated entrepreneur, saw the opportunity to sell used radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and electronic article surveillance (EAS) tags to retailers. Working long days and nights, he dedicated himself to growing his fledgling company by visiting large and small retailers across the nation.

The turning point came in 1999 when Adel’s keen market acumen told him that the retail industry needed a better EAS tag; as a result he invented the Milli Tag. This small, easy to use tag became a major hit among retailers for its small size and ease of installation and removal.

Since that time, USS has been issued more than 75 patents with numerous others pending and has gone from offering just tags to inventing cutting edge EAS and CCTV systems and solutions for customers ranging from Fortune 500 giants to small chains.

This powerhouse has also grown from one man’s vision to a grand complex in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and is now home to nearly 50 dedicated professionals, a state of the art research and development facility, and massive warehouse. As the largest privately held loss prevention solution provider, today USS is known throughout the industry for its innovative products, superior customer service and dedication to giving back to the industry and the world through its charitable activities.


“The Universal Surveillance team is committed to providing innovative protection solutions of the highest quality with an unsurpassed level of customer service.”

Since 1995, we have worked closely with both national and regional retailers to offer solutions that help deter theft with our cutting edge EAS and CCTV technology.

We work together with you to secure your merchandise, please your customers and protect your bottom line. Our motto is “If you can dream it, we can build it.” From that philosophy has come some of the most revolutionary, game changing innovations in loss prevention seen in decades.

But our dedication to the industry goes far beyond our providing it with effective products and systems– USS gives back to the LP community by sponsoring numerous regional Organized Retail Crime (ORC) conferences that bring LP professionals together to share knowledge and help stop this growing threat to retailers of all sizes.


Comprised of professionals with more than 350 years combined LP experience, the Universal Surveillance Systems team provides the kind of expertise and knowledge that has made us an industry leader in innovative EAS and CCTV technology since 1995. USS understands loss prevention because we have an intimate working knowledge of the day-to-day challenges faced by LP professionals and what is needed to build successful programs and solutions.

As a result, we have pioneered the creation of some of the smallest, most effective, aesthetic, innovative solutions available. Retailers ranging from national chains to small regional stores have chosen USS products as the reliable, cost effective, easy to use solutions to protect their merchandise.
