Mannequins are Watching You

This time of the year the stores are usually packed solid full of people shopping for their friends and family for the Holiday season, but what they don’t realize is that they are actually being not only watched while they are shopping, but recorded too. It’s a very common thing for stores to put up surveillance cameras throughout the stores, but this is really the first time that these cameras are going in better hidden areas and are able to catch much more of what consumers are actually doing – so shop lifters beware!

Mannequins are Watching You

The product is called EyeSee and it was introduced by Italian mannequin producer Almax SpA. The device (worth about $5,072 US) is attracting shop owners all over the world because the mannequin looks like every other mannequin so there is really no way for shoppers to know which ones are set up with video recording.

Store owners and managers strongly believe that they’ll be able to better catch shop lifters with these devices because it’s very common for shop lifters to huddle close to taller objects (such as mannequins) to steal merchandise.

Of course many consumers think this is a huge privacy issue, but some store owners have no choice. Shop lifters in the USA steal about $20 billion dollars of merchandise each year so this is a huge issue that pushes stores to go to the extreme to stop this.
