Albertson's Inc. to install CCTV systems from Sensormatic Electronics Corp.; one of nation's largest grocery chains uses Sensormatic systems for security and store management.

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 25, 1995-- Albertson's Inc. is installing more than a half million dollars worth of closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems from Sensormatic Electronics Corporation (SRM/NYSE) in 10 of its new Houston stores.

Albertson's Inc., headquartered in Boise, Idaho, will use Sensormatic's SensorVision CCTV systems to keep customers and employees safe in stores and parking lots, combat internal and external theft and reduce fraudulent slip-and-fall claims.

Each Albertson's store will use Sensormatic's VM96 video management system to control multiple color Speed Domes and fixed cameras installed throughout the store and parking lot. These cameras will connect to a video multiplexer, which allows operators to simultaneously view and record several cameras' activity from a single monitor. Albertson's Inc. will also mount public view monitors at each store's entrance and customer service area so that people realize they are being monitored for their safety.

The VM96 system has advanced programming capabilities such as the ability to preprogram camera patterns and targets. Each Albertson's Inc. store will program its receiving schedules into the VM96 and install alarm switches at every door. If a door opens past the scheduled receiving time, the VM96 will trigger a SpeedDome camera to target the area in less than one second and immediately begin recording the event.

"Sensormatic's VM96 is the only video management system which offers such extensive programmable capabilities," said John Meskill, Sensormatic's Vice President, Food Group. "Albertson's has already established itself as an industry leader by protecting its high theft merchandise with electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems from Sensormatic, and now it is furthering that role with its extensive use of CCTV."

In addition to using Sensormatic's CCTV systems for security, Albertson's Inc. is also using the VM96 as a management tool. A Touch Tracker camera controller is dedicated to the security manager's office, and an additional Touch Tracker and monitor are located on the store director's desk. These allow management to oversee customer and employee activity in the store.

Sensormatic Electronics Corp., the world leader in electronic security, and the Official Electronic Security Supplier for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, is a fully integrated supplier of electronic security systems to retail, commercial and industrial markets.

The company's electronic article-surveillance (EAS), closed circuit television (CCTV) and exception monitoring systems are used by both soft goods and hard goods retailers to deter shoplifting and internal theft.

Sensormatic's CCTV, access control and electronic asset protection (EAP) security systems are used by retail, commercial and industrial customers to protect assets, information and people. All of the company's products are marketed by an extensive worldwide sales and service organization complemented by a broad distribution network.
