SelectaDNA Intruder Spray is the ultimate commercial burglary and robbery deterrent and an ideal way for businesses, shops, banks, post offices and other premises to protect their employees, valuable stock and cash.
SelectaDNA Intruder Spray can be linked to intruder alarm systems, or used as a stand-alone system activated by a panic button. Each spray system contains a unique forensic code and UV tracer that is sprayed onto an intruder when they leave the premises – this leaves an irrefutable chain of evidence which links them the crime scene. SelectaDNA is a huge deterrent to would-be-thieves, as the one thing that criminals fear the most is… DNA evidence!
How it works
Single or multiple SelectaDNA Intruder Spray heads can be fitted at the exit points of premises or key areas of where valuable stock is stored. The SelectaDNA Intruder Spray can be armed by a panic button and/or linked to an existing intruder alarm system. Once armed, movement beneath the PIR sensor causes the spray head to emit a burst of unique SelectaDNA solution covertly onto the offenders. We liaise with your alarm installer and provide them with full installation guidelines on how to install and/or integrate the system with your intruder alarm.
Identifying a Sprayed Offender
Traces of the SelectaDNA solution can be taken from the skin, hair and clothing of suspects, and sent away for forensic analysis to prove that the offender has committed an offence at a particular premises. Although invisible and harmless, the UV and DNA will remain on an offender for weeks.
The Deterrent Effect
Reflective outdoor warning signs and double sided window stickers are supplied with each SelectaDNA Intruder Spray system, to alert potential offenders that those premises displaying signage are forensically protected. As the DNA fear-factor amongst criminals is so high, it has been proven that criminals will leave SelectaDNA protected sites alone.
