Video surveillance retail stores

Intelligent anti-shoplifting system

In-store video surveillance is essential for shoplifting prevention. Discover our software, Veesion, which detects shoplifting incidents automatically in real-time.

Intelligent video surveillance for retail stores

Veesion is a 100% made in France security company that has developed a gesture recognition technology. Since 2018, we have been detecting gestures of theft in stores around the world, with a goal of eradicating shoplifting.

Our gesture recognition AI-based software uses the latest advances in Deep Learning to automatically detect shoplifting gestures in real-time in supermarkets from existing surveillance cameras.

Do you want to ensure the security of your store? Our anti-shoplifting system is for you!

AI simulation to detect suspicious gestures

The benefits of intelligent video surveillance for stores.

The amount of shoplifting (more precisely, shrinkage) is estimated at up to 3% of the sales turnover of the point of sale annually. The installation of a traditional video surveillance system certainly contributes to limiting these acts, but its preventative measures become less efficient over time. It is difficult for a security guard (when there is one) to monitor everything and spot all suspicious acts.

Less than 5% of shoplifting incidents are detected by a trained agent.

Veesion is a 24/7 video operator that never takes a break or a vacation and never gets tired. Simply put, Veesion helps you optimize your security expenditure while also providing the most efficient results.

Secure your store with an intelligent video surveillance system

Intelligent anti-shoplifting system

In the field of video surveillance, Veesion has developed a powerful tool to help you optimize the security of your store. We offer you an intelligent anti-shoplifting system based on artificial intelligence allowing you to detect suspicious gestures in real-time by warning you every time someone is acting suspicious in your store.

An innovative artificial intelligence system

Veesion is the first gesture recognition software used to fight against theft. We bring to your video protection system the best of Artificial Intelligence to prevent shoplifting in real-time.

How does our anti-shoplifting system for stores work?

Veesion is an anti-shoplifting system for stores around the world. For several months, our developers and AI researchers “trained” the Veesion algorithm to detect shoplifting by giving it millions of examples of suspicious gestures related to shoplifting. Our software is able to detect shoplifting incidents that take place in front of store cameras.

In AI, the continuous learning process allows our technology to get better and better and eventually reach 99% detection rate.

Installation of the software on the store’s existing cameras:

After connecting our server to your video recorder, we synchronize the Veesion software with the cameras in your store. In less than 30 minutes, you‘ll be ready to get your first alerts.

Sending alerts on the tablet or phone available to the store:

Once connected to your cameras, the software will send you notifications on your tablet, phone or computer (even on your cash registers). These notifications are short videos allowing you to quickly identify the suspect and intervene in real-time.

Arrest of the thieves by the store’s security guards

After receiving the alert, the security guard will be able to apprehend the thief before he flees and use the video notification to avoid any outbursts: a proof will allow the security guard to quickly confront the potential thief with its actions, and will be able to judge what to do after the checkout.

Our commitments regarding video surveillance in stores

Veesion technology is based solely on algorithmic processing of gestures. The software does not use facial recognition, customer tracking or identity registration.

Therefore, our technology does not allow for the recognition of physical or physiological characteristics, the deduction of emotions or intentions of people.

This is one of Veesion’s fundamental commitments. This commitment allows us to protect the identity of all our clients’ consumers.

Veesion only uses the data collected in the context of providing the service and for no other purpose

Artificial intelligence is leveraged as a tool to assist customers in making decisions

Veesion’s technology only analyzes gestures, never individuals.

Veesion technology has the same purpose as existing video protection systems.

Questions and Answers

Who can view the video surveillance images of a store?

The recorded images must not be freely accessible to all employees or customers. In its deliberation of April 22, 2010, the NCIL stated that the images captured and recorded must be sufficiently protected against access by unauthorized third parties (NCIL N°2010-112 of 4-22-10).

Thus, in principle, only security managers, security guards or employees can view them. The people filmed also have a right of access to the images on which they appear (article L. 253-5 CSI). The recorded images can be viewed to remove a doubt.

How long is the legal retention period for video surveillance recordings?

The person in charge of the system must determine the duration of the conservation of the images of its cameras and must do it according to the objective pursued by the installation of the surveillance system.

The conservation of the images cannot be superior to 30 days, except for legal proceedings in progress. In fact, some images can be kept for a longer period if this conservation is necessary for an investigation and/or to be used as proof relative to a security incident. The length of time videos are kept is re-evalued regularly.

Does Veesion only work as an anti-shoplifting system or does it have other functionalities?

Today, Veesion allows the detection of gestures potentially associated with different shoplifting incidents. We are also working on another algorithm capable of detecting fraud at traditional checkouts or in self-checkout.

The alerts can be displayed as a popup (in addition to the application) on a PC. Thanks to a dedicated customer interface (soon available), the user can have a view of the Veesion results on all his sales points sorted by date.

Does Veesion also sell video surveillance cameras for stores?

Veesion is a software hosted on a computational server that is implemented on existing cameras. In other words, Veesion does not sell surveillance cameras for retail stores. However, we work in partnership with many camera suppliers and can provide advice on the supply of video surveillance equipment.
