This Anti-Theft Device for Homes Could Be a Game Changer

While whatever security measures you had in place to keep the burglars out may have failed here, you now have a better chance than ever of getting your things back, thanks to a cool new product from ProTech DNA called DNA for Property.

And, the best part is: Itrsquo;s free, courtesy of the insurance industry, who was smart enough to see the advantage of underwriting the product instead of having to pay to replace their customersrsquo; stolen stuff. After all, according to safewise, ldquo;More than five million thefts occur nationally each yearrdquo; Thatrsquo;s a lot of money out of pocket for you, if yoursquo;re a victim of theft, and for the insurance company who has to pay out a claim.

National investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen profiled the product on TODAY, demonstrating how it can greatly increase the chances that burglary victims will get their stolen items back. ldquo;In many cases, once police have recovered the items, its difficult for them to determine the rightful owner,rdquo; they said.

This anti-theft kit is poised to put an end to that problem; the product is a game changer that uses DNA to ldquo;tagrdquo; your things. According to the company, DNA for Property is a ldquo;forensic marking solution that will put your unique identifier on all your valuables. Each Dot is made of nickel, and has a unique PIN Personal Identification Number. The glue/adhesive contains a UV trace that will glow under a black light.rdquo;

So far, more than 5,000 police departments across the country have partnered with the company, with another 1,000 being added each month, creating a widespread national anti-theft system.

Each kit comes with enough gel to tag about 100 items, so you donrsquo;t have to play Sophiersquo;s Choice with your possessions. Safewise has a good rundown of the most likely items to get stolen in a home burglary to assist you in choosing what to include. Their No. 1: Cash. While yoursquo;re probably not going to mark every dollar bill that comes through your home, this is a great reminder to tag your stash of emergency cash or any bundles you keep in a safe or other presumably secure place in your home while yoursquo;re marking your laptops, TV, and art pieces.

You can get your free DNA kit from their website.
