If you are a bar owner and you are experiencing theft in your establishment, you will want to pay attention right about now. You might not think that you have any options to secure your liquor other than hiding it and locking it up in a cabinet. Liquor bottle security technology has greatly advanced in recent years. Assuming that saving money and reducing loss from theft sound good to you, these awesome little gadgets are definitely something you’ll want to look into for your business.
Alpha security has developed an entire line of products made specifically for wine and liquor bottle security. For a bar, bottle locks are a must have. They have a product that fits nearly every type of liquor and wine bottle. These devices aren’t some huge bulky thing that looks like a padlock, they are very sleek looking, and fit right on top of the bottles.
Not only do the bottle locks have an alarm that sounds if the lock is being tampered with, but they also work in benefit denial. What this means is that if someone tries to remove one of the locks, they will damage the bottle. Think of it like a bank robber who gets the big bag of cash and think they are home free, but then the dye pack ruins all of the money with ink, rendering it useless. Although dye packs will not be exploding on your liquor bottles, it’s the same principle, denying the thief the benefits of the product.
So you’re probably wondering how you attach and remove the locks from the wine and liquor bottles. It’s a very quick and easy process. There is a special key that is used with the locks, that is small enough to be carried around by a bartender or manager. I would recommend ordering a few of the keys, keeping one as a backup, and limiting access to the others with a log that your team can sign them in and out. This will ensure that you know exactly has had their hands on them.
Also, if you already have an existing EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) system or plan to integrate one into your liquor bottle security strategy, Alpha security carries EASy bottle locks as well. These devices still offer benefit denial, but will also cause your EAS system to sound an alarm at the door if someone passes through the antennas with the device attached to your inventory.
With this in mind, potential thieves would think twice about even attempting to steal your products. What would be the point? They will most likely take one look at the bottle locks and not even waste their time trying. They’ll just go hit a neighboring establishment that doesn’t require as much work to get their score. That’s the beauty of these products. Just seeing the devices on a bottle provides a visual deterrence, and will stop most would be thieves in their tracks.
The team at Alpha security have really thought of everything with their bottle security product line. These are extremely durable devices that provide the best protection, and the products are visually pleasing, so you can display them proudly without your customers being put off by some crazy looking contraption attached to your bottles.
