The CSI Spray That Helps You Protect Small Belongings

SmartWaterIt sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it isn’t. This “forensic smart water” can help you protect your belongings.

CSI Smartwater is an odorless, colorless liquid. It’s linked to a specific bar code on the packaging of each bottle, so belongings may be traced to the smart water marking it.

This water can only be seen with a black light. It helps police recover property and makes cases against criminals.

Smartwater is actually not all that new. It’s been used in the UK for over 15 years now, but it’s only now catching on in America.

It lasts 5 years and can survive all weather conditions.

Some suggestions on where to use it:

  • On computers, laptops, tablets, and cell phones.
  • On televisions, DVD players, and game consoles.
  • On DVDs and video games
  • Firearms
  • Jewelry

We’ve also seen some news reports where people set it up as a kind of booby trap, though we’re honestly not sure how that would work. It seems to work best as the new high-tech version of scratching serial numbers into products, as long as you remember to refresh it every 5 years.

Businesses are also using it to mark copper cables or other equipment that is subject to theft.

You should treat Smartwater as a second line of defense against burglary, not as a first line of defense. You still don’t want people to get into your home. Your first line of defense should be a monitored home alarm system which keeps your family safe.

Still, it’s nice to know that you can increase your chances of recovering your belongings.
