Retail Theft Skyrockets: AI-Powered Tech Offers Hope and Solution

AI-powered unusual behavior detection (UBD)

Luxury retailers are under siege. In the last year, bold mass robberies have ransacked stores from LA to New York - causing millions in losses. Organized flash mobs overwhelm security, grab luxury goods, and vanish within minutes. As brazen retail theft surges, companies desperately need solutions. 

AI-powered unusual behavior detection (UBD) offers a high-tech answer. UBD uses AI and computer vision to automatically identify suspicious activity and prevent crime in real-time. Leading UBD provider Rhombus Systems has a proven solution ready to deploy. When paired with a rapid rollout from security AV experts like Innova Global, luxury retailers finally have hope to stop this crime wave.

The Problem: Agile and Adaptable Thieves 

In the Nordstrom robbery at LA's The Grove, 80 suspects stole $5,000 purses straight off shelves. In 60 seconds, thieves snatched $27,000 worth of clothes from a Chicago North Face store. Luxury shops from Louis Vuitton to Rolex have been devastated.

These bold attacks leave police frustrated. Groups organize on social media, storm in, then vanish quickly. The thieves are agile, adapting tactics to evade traditional security like guards, locks, or alarms. And when apprehended, weak penalties fail to deter repeat offenses. 

Retailers urgently need technology that can identify threats and automatically alert authorities. AI-powered UBD delivers exactly that.

The Solution: AI-Powered Unusual Behavior Detection

Rhombus System's UBD allows cameras to "learn" normal activity patterns. When the AI detects anomalies, it triggers real-time alerts. UBD recognizes suspicious behaviors including:

With customization sensitivity, UBD integrates seamlessly across large and small retail enterprises. The Rhombus software centralizes monitoring and control. Authorized users access real-time alerts from any web browser. 

UBD deterrence also reduces theft. Visible cameras and prominent warnings make criminals think twice before attempting a brazen group robbery.

Fast Deployment, scalable Protection  

Time is money for luxury retailers facing constant attack. With losses mounting daily, businesses need robust UBD protection immediately. Rhombus stands ready to deploy, but retailers also need partners who can install and integrate systems rapidly across multiple locations.
