Burglaries from outdoor “smash and grab” have been costing retailers millions of dollars of loss. In order to detect if someone is trying to penetrate retail store buildings, retailers need to deploy a detection system that triggers activity and activate cameras and authorities.


Utilizing the OPTEX Redscan RLS02020S vertical mode detection with Genetec RSA allowed this national retail company to achieve just this.


OPTEX installed first 12 stores for a total of 105 RLS-2020S for initial project. Redscans covered the sides of the buildings as well as key areas of the roofs where needed. It was integrated into the Genetec RSA plugin that unifies OPTEX Redscan detectors with cameras creating full control of video recording and security events. Next opportunities are for installing RLS-2020S at 100’s of stores across the United States in 2020-2021. Due to the success of Redscan, the national systems integrator is now introducing the value of this application for other large retail end users.
