Leverage your RFID investment

Enhance inventory tracking and loss prevention capabilities by combining your RFID data with high-definition surveillance video. This valuable integration lets you easily search for and locate RFID-tagged items by date, time, brand, product type, serial number or Electronic Product Code (EPC). You can then access the associated video with a single click to see exactly when and how an item entered or left a location.

Get detailed insights into your business

The Operations Audit feature makes it easy for you to drill down by camera name and timeframe to see what’s happening in specific areas of your business. By creating a filter for the time-window-of-interest, you can see snapshots of certain times of the day – at desired locations – and narrow it down to a particular camera. You can also click on a thumbnail to view corresponding video, and even export the clips to email with ease.
