NRS Introduces New POS Security Alarm to Enhance Security for Independent Retail Stores

September 20, 2021 GMT

TheNew ’NRS POS Emergency Call Button’ EnablesRetailersto Alert Policeto RobberiesWithout Tipping Off Thieves

NEWARK, N.J., Sept. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National Retail Solutions (NRS), the operator of a leading point-of-sale (POS) network for independent retailers nationwide and a subsidiary of IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT), unveiled a new premium security feature -- the NRS POS Emergency Call Button. The Call Button is an alarm system cleverly hidden within the NRS point-of-sale (POS) register terminal that enables the store owner or operator to covertly request an emergency police dispatch.

“Small, neighborhood convenience stores are frequently targeted by thieves,” said Elie Y. Katz, founder and CEO of NRS. “Stores are open late and often operate with just one or two employees. Since the pandemic, we’ve seen a spike in convenience store robberies and a disturbing increase in violent attacks.”

“To help safeguard these businesses and protect their employees, we have developed a patented theft deterrent feature: The NRS POS Emergency Call Button,” Katz added. “The Call Button feature is carefully disguised on our POS unit’s merchant-facing touch screen. It silently requests an emergency police dispatch to the store location when the NRS terminal operator opens the cash drawer.”

The NRS POS Emergency CallButton feature is now available in New York State and will be rolled out in other parts of the country in the coming months. In New York State, the alarm system is offered through NRS’ partnership with Top Security Alarms*, a leading alarm company in the region for over 40 years.
