Imagine the nightmare scenario of a thief breaking into your home. They target your most valuable items first – laptops, tablets, phones, jewellery – anything they can sell on quickly.
However, if each valuable item they come across is marked with SelectaDNA – a unique formula of DNA, UV tracer and microdots - and is displaying a deterrent warning sticker, then the chances of the thief stealing it drops dramatically.
Our SelectaDNA Home Kit, which is supported by Crimestoppers, marks up to 50 items of property including TVs, smartphones, iPads, games consoles, digital cameras and antiques.
We are so confident that using our Home Kit will make your home more secure and less attractive to thieves that we are offering an incredible 100% money back guarantee.
This special offer comes in response to latest police figures recording a 32% rise in domestic burglary and is aimed at supporting communities across the UK in the fight against crime. If after registering your kit, marking your items of property and putting up the warning stickers as indicated, you still get burgled we will refund the price you paid for your home kit in full.
The SelectaDNA Home Kit consists of a bottle of clear liquid which carries its very own unique synthetic DNA code which is only visible under ultraviolet light. It takes seconds to apply the liquid and it’s virtually impossible to remove. Marked property is then registered onto a secure police and insurance approved national database which proves ownership and allows recovered items to be traced back to the owner. By marking property and displaying the orange window stickers (supplied with the kit) warning that property is DNA marked, criminals will be deterred from targeting protected homes.
Many police forces including Greater Manchester Police, West Midlands Police, Cheshire Constabulary and Merseyside Police have successfully cut the number of burglars trying their luck especially when they realise that items marked with the DNA code are much harder to sell on. In North Manchester, burglaries were reduced by 83% following a home crime reduction initiative using SelectaDNA kits; and Surrey Police have launched a massive burglary reduction scheme using the kits that will protect 30,000 homes over the next year.
According to the Home Office (https://www.police.uk/crime-prevention-advice/burglary), homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures in place.
Here are SelectaDNA’s Top Five tips to help keep your home safe:
1. Lock all doors and windows every time you leave the house, even if it’s just for a short time.
2. Hide house and car keys away from the letterbox so that thieves can’t hook them out.
3. Install a burglar alarm and good outside lighting. Use a timer so that lights come on inside your home after dark.
4. Ask a neighbour to keep an eye on your property. Keep fences and hedges well-maintained, put ladders and tools away so they can’t be used to break into your home.
5. Mark items of value with a SelectaDNA Home Kit. It’s a great deterrent and can also help police recover stolen goods back to their owners.
You only pay once for your SelectaDNA Home Kit. There are no annual licence fees and the kit also includes lifetime registration on the Secure Asset Register.
