New Door-Mounted EAS System from USS Unveiled
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., (February 26, 2015) –
USS has announced a nationwide release of its new Blade EAS system. Being hailed as the perfect solution for locations where floor pedestals are either impractical or not allowed, the new system can be mounted on a door frame or a wall.
“The Blade sports a modern, thin design, that easily blends with store décor,” says Anthony Oliver, USS’ chief technology officer. “It offers a lot of features, such as jammer alarm, near-tag alarm, energy-saving mode and an integrated people counter, to name just a few. Because it does not touch the floor, it poses no trip hazard for shoppers, and its acrylic sides can even be used for displaying advertizing.”
“One of the best features of the Blade system is that it is compatible with our TechConnect remote access program,” says Doug McHose, president of USS. “With TechConnect, USS service engineers can remotely tune and troubleshoot the pedestals, reducing the number of times a technician needs to be dispatched on location. This offers significant savings in both time and money to our customers because the service hours are kept to a minimum.”
“Four retailers are already using the Blade system,” says Marc Trincale, R&D manager at USS. “The feedback has been very positive, and we are very excited to now offer it to a wider market.”
