Anti-Theft Widget and Built-In Camera – Feature Overview
A built-in kiosk security camera enables you to capture and retrieve the image of a person associated with a walk-away or void transaction via an Anti-Theft widget included with Catapult® Dash. Catapult Dash is part of ECRS’ extensive web office management suite that is provided with all of our kiosk systems at no extra charge. To improve the chances of capturing a usable image before the person walks away, multiple images are captured throughout the transaction starting after the customer is associated. If the transaction is triggered as suspicious, the system automatically sends the data and image to Catapult Dash to be included on the Anti-Theft widget.
The Anti-Theft widget displays suspicious transaction activity within a specific time period with drill down capability to show details such as associated customer name and ID, time and date of transaction, item corrects, and associated dollar amount. Because the widget transaction detail includes a time and date stamp, it makes it easy to locate video footage of the transaction if DVR cameras are installed in the Micro Market®.
The customer will see a small picture of him or herself flash in the top right of the kiosk screen during their transaction. This acts as a theft deterrent by alerting the customer that their image is being captured. The addition of our anti-theft camera not only provides an additional visual deterrent to unwanted shrinkage from your Micro Market locations, but also ensures that you have recorded evidence, should the occurrence be more common than the occasional accidental scanning error or price check.
