DVR/POS Cash Register Security Camera Systemsdvr cash register pos


Canadian retailers lose some $8 million every day from combined customer and employee theft. That's the conclusion of the 2003 Canadian Retail Security Report. 40% of that sum is pocketed by dishonest employees. Respondents reported a dramatic rise in theft by organized theft rings., which account for over 17% of overall losses. And the trend appears to indicate an increase in losses due to shoplifting and dishonest employees.

An obvious focus of theft by dishonest employees is the Point of Sale (POS), that is, at your cash register. That's  where goods and cash change hands and it's the easiest place to steal. Dishonest employees may be stealing from your clients too, by short changing them. This is unfair to your clients and it ruins your reputation. So the loss to you may be even greater than the sums stolen. 

Magen Security Alarm Systems Integrated DVR / POS Cash Register Security Camera Systems can significantly reduce POS Cash Register fraud. With Magen Security Alarm Systems, the balance in your cash register will be the actual value of what you sold or the data they provide will allow you to finger the employee who is depriving you of your income. Magen Security Alarm System can help you minimize losses due to scams and rip-offs at your POS Cash Register. Our Integrated Digital Video Recording (DVR) / Point of Sale ( POS ) Cash Register Security Camera System will help protect your income.

Benefits of Digital Video Recording ( DVR ) / Point of Sale ( POS ) Security Camera Systems Integrationpos dvr systems

With the integrated Digital Video Recording ( DVR ) / Point of Sale ( POS ) electronic security system a complete picture of cash register activity is captured. DVR / POS integration allows users to monitor and collect data on all cash registers in real time while simultaneously recording all activity for review at a later date. All transactions are superimposed onto the matching video of the cashier, customer, cash register/POS and products. The system permits identification and pinpointing of questionable activity.

With the Digital Video Recording ( DVR ) activated, the action can be viewed online from a remote site or reviewed at a later date. Live action can be viewed through the internet on any browser on the monitor of your computer. Data can be stored on CD, DVD or on hard disks. A unique feature is the ability to easily search for an event or group of events and view the synchronized security camera picture and POS cash register data on a PC screen. This search feature can be applied to a large number of variables such as date & time, receipt numbers, credit card numbers, cash register number, security camera number, transaction number, type of transaction, badge number, Point of Sale ( POS ) cash register device and others. It may also be used to conduct searches to investigate unusual activities, such as abnormally high numbers of refunds, No Sales, manual price overrides or voided transactions.

The DVR / POS Cash Register system may be set to monitor all cash register transactions or it may be automatically activated only to capture transactions that violate predefined rules or criteria. This method is known as "DVR / POS exception based". The DVR / POS exception based system is normally preferred because of the huge amounts of data which would otherwise be generated documenting innocent and honest activity. The DVR / POS exception based system can spot patterns in cases indicating questionable employee practices. This eliminates the need to continuously monitor, without diluting the ability to identify suspicious activity and to spot the offender. Each DVR / POS Cash Register can be programmed with a different set of rules and criteria for activation.
