And no, not the "smartwater" that you can get at the local quickie mart! First time Ive ever heard of this. Did a search here, but I couldn't find
anything related...I can't believe that this hasn't been discussed here before.
SmartWater is a chemical that can be sprayed on valuables that could help police crack the case if they're stolen.
It can also be used with a burglar alarm tied in with a sprinkler system.
Wired dot com 2005 article
Another application is a sprinkler system that sprays a burglar with the (invisible) fluid, which cannot be washed off and lasts for months,
to generate evidence that connects a suspect to a specific location.
Why isn't this in widespread use here in the US? It's been in use in the UK for almost 20 years!! This would be such a deterrent for would be
burglars, right? See one of those stickers on your targets' door/window...
Here's the video of the specific story I saw, which involved Winter Park, FL. Apparently the city likes this SmartWater so much it will give every
homeowner one for free, due to past burglaries.
Sorry, I can't link the vid...
Just thought this was interesting and wanted to share...
