Getting burgled can be an incredibly emotionally distressing experience, especially when valuable or sentimental belongings are lost. Earlier this month, we looked at Smart Water as a method of marking your property, increasing the chances of it being returned to you if found by the police. However, if you are not willing to pay for this subscription service, a free alternative fully supported by the police is available in the form of Immobilise.
UV technology has, for many years, been a useful and legitimate technique for crime solving. UV pens are regularly given out by the police for homeowners to invisibly mark their valuables so that, in the case of a theft, an item’s original address can hopefully be proven. However UV ink is prone to rubbing off or fading over time, therefore requiring semi-regular reapplication. With this in mind, one company has gone above and beyond this idea to invent a highly resilient new UV technology – Smart Water.
