Do clothing security tags set off alarms?
Also know, do security tags make alarms go off?
Without a detection system, security tags are useless. When the sensor passes the detectors, the alarm goes off. Most tags also can be programmed to set off an alarm if someone attempts to remove them without the proper tool.
Also question is, why do I set off security alarms in stores?
“You've purchased an item, you're walking out the door and all of a sudden, security or someone from the store is approaching you.” If you didn't steal anything and the alarm goes off, that means you're carrying or wearing an item with a security tag that somehow didn't get deactivated by a cashier.
basically the little metal strips inside those white anti-theft tags are made to a precise size and thickness that slightly alters the magnetic 'signal' being sent out from the detectors. Stores don't seem to care too much about stopping theft of small items like candy bars.
