Walk-Throughs at Self-Checkout
The increased use of Self-Checkout terminals has amplified the Push-Out challenge to include Walk-Throughs. Walk-Throughs refer to visitors who take baskets, boxes, bags, and increasingly, shopping carts filled with goods, through the Self-Checkout zone without paying. Self-Checkout zones are known to have low staffing levels and little or no security or surveillance making them easier target zones for this type of theft.

- Push-Out Check® uses Visual AI Video Analytics to remotely and permanently control any store entry or exit points
- Staff receive automatic real time notifications of suspicious visitor movements, with or without shopping carts, baskets, boxes or bags
- Push-Out Check® can also be used to detect Walk-Throughs in the Self-Checkout zone when visitors walk past the checkouts without paying
