Lockdown-Enabled Locks<p>​Westinghouse Security of Davenport, Florida, added a lockdown function to its RTS Lock series. The locks are designed to address the needs of users who require that doors can be locked immediately in case of an emergency. To employ lockdown, users press the programming up and down arrow keys simultaneously and hold for five seconds. Because the arrow keys are inside the room, the user need not access the exterior side of the lock. When successfully locked down, users can see “Device Secured” on the lock’s screen. Only someone with authorized credentials can access the door from the outside when it is in lockdown.</p><img alt="" src="/ASIS%20SM%20Product%20Images/Westinghouse.png" style="BORDER&#58;0px solid;" />

EAS Tags<p>​Checkpoint Systems of Thorofare, New Jersey, created its smallest Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) tag with organized retail crime leave-behind protection. Designed for high-theft retail categories, the 2928 S Swat Micro Tag optimizes protection without obscuring branding and product information. The clear RF EAS label includes visible circuitry and messaging for visual deterrence against theft. It offers the added protection of an indelible graphic that’s left behind on product packaging if the tag’s EAS circuitry layer is forcibly peeled away; this makes stolen goods more difficult to fence. The tag is easily deactivated at point of sale for an improved customer experience. Custom printing options enhance targeted protection and store branding.</p><img alt="" src="/ASIS%20SM%20Product%20Images/Checkpoint.png" style="BORDER&#58;0px solid;" />
