Digital Retail Security Solutions
Sennco wanted to help its retail customers increase sales and profits by developing an innovative alarm system as opposed to conventional connected alarms that are permanently tethered to display products. These traditional security systems were cumbersome and intrusive to the customer shopping experience. Additionally, they provided no useful data or analytics.
ThingLogixThingLogix propels the modern business with the Internet of Things by combining insight-driven IoT services and the power of the cloud - creating new business value and accelerating time-to-market.
Customers are from the retail sector especially those in the computer and personal electronics segment.
- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
Sennco's Genesis Wireless which is a far less cumbersome security system. It has small wireless attachments that generate an audio alarm when the device leaves a geofence perimeter around the display. Customers can now move around the store, test the feel of a device in their pocket, compare products side by side, and connect the product with a wearable or other bluetooth devices. In addition, customer behavior analytics can be performed which can improve the marketing and sales tactics of the retailer. Thinglogix became the glue for this solution and took over all the cloud and IoT integration that was out of Sennco's core area of expertise.

- QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
- USE CASES
GeofencingGeofencing is a technology that uses GPS, RFID, or other location tracking or object detection technology to define geographical boundaries. It allows administrators to set up triggers such as push notifications, email alerts, or kill switches when a device crosses a “geofence” and enters or exits an area. For example, equipment that exits a construction could be programmed to shut down beyond the borders of a geofence in order to prevent theft. Likewise, the departure of power tools from a shop floor could trigger a text message alert. The geofencing market is segmented on the basis of components (solution and services), geofencing type, organization size, verticals, and regions. Geofencing services are further segmented into deployment and integration, support and maintenance, consulting and advisory, and API management and testing services. Market growth is driven by the connectivity of mobile assets and industrial campuses.
