SmartWater is a forensically encoded liquid that is being introduced to residents and businesses to mark property that may be stolen during a burglary.
SmartWater is used to protect all valuables, both indoors and outdoors, such as:
Homes – electrical goods, jewelry, hobby items and air-conditioning units
Utilities – copper cabling (due to the global metal theft problem)
Finance – cash, cash boxes and items used to hold cash
Machinery – heavy equipment and industrial machinery (see a lot of thefts in rural areas)
Retail – spray systems are being installed by loss prevention security teams to protect cash offices, stock and point of sale displays.
