About WG Security Products, Inc.
WG, established in 1998, has been an innovator in the Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) industry with its ingenuity and progressive thinking. With U.S operations headquartered in Campbell, CA, its primary concentration remains on retail loss prevention and asset protection, but its products and programs reach across industries and disciplines.
With its long history of innovations, WG was the first company to develop and deploy 58Khz ferrite-based tag technology, a 58Khz Concealed Loop EAS System and incorporate infrared (IR) 4-alarm technology into specialty smart tags. The company was also the first EAS manufacturer to fully integrate Wi-Fi technology into EAS antennas and EAS Concealed Systems allowing for remote access and service without needing to connect to the retailer’s network.
