Unison – a Singular Approach to Integrated Security

An open, product-agnostic security management platform, Unison integrates access control, intrusion detection, video, fire and intercom into a single intuitive user interface. Unison is designed for operations that demand rich system integration within large, complex environments such as prisons, airports, universities and hospitals. Unison was launched in April 2014 and is gearing up to make a splash in the healthcare and higher education markets.

Big Lots! Embracing Digitally Enabled Integrated Security

“This was fun, working with STANLEY. They didn’t bring tired notions of security that focus just on loss prevention. Together we built something people have always dreamed of in retail—truly, fully integrated protection. The systems talk to each other. We pull data reports whenever we want. And in retail protection, data is king. If we see something wrong in the data, or if an alarm is triggered, it’s on camera—every store, monitored from one location 24/7. This is helping us create a better shopping environment for our customers—safer to be in and nicer to shop in. That’s the key, creating a positive, more productive experience for 'Jennifer,' our target shopper.”

Steve McClain,
Vice President of Asset Protection,
Big Lots!

Big Lots! has over 1,500 stores, many of which did not have electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems in place. For our first major EAS assignment, we took a revolutionary approach: instead of focusing on just reducing shrink, we designed integrated systems to capture data that can improve the efficiency of operations, thereby delivering margin improvement to our customer. The radio frequency (RF) systems we deployed count more than just merchandise. They also provide people counting and remote service capabilities, integrated with video. This enables Big Lots! headquarters to have a real-time picture—data and video—of its entire retail operations. Finally, we integrate POS data to deliver enhanced data reporting to the customer. Now Big Lots! can staff more intelligently while cutting shrink, returns and price overrides, with an expected annual margin improvement that can more than pay for the investment.

As part of our integrated security relationship with the Big Lots! chain, we are now the designated vendor for automatic doors for new builds and remodels going forward, where today only 20 percent of their stores use automatic doors from STANLEY Access Technologies.

Our success at Big Lots! with this integrated, internet-protocol-based solution is also opening doors at other retail chains.
