DataDot™ Technology

The Problem

When theft happens, it can be devastating and it's a constant threat to the homeowner and business owner. Crimes of theft and burglary continue to grow around the world, depleting personal finances, raising insurance premiums, threatening the livelihood of small companies, interrupting productivity and reeking serious havoc in industry, business, corporations and families.

Alarm systems and cameras are important security devices in the fight against theft but alarms must be turned on and cameras don't always capture clear images. If both are defeated, the resulting invasion takes on a highly personal meaning because it happens right where you work or live. The losses themselves are also highly personal and often the associated problems resulting from theft can far exceed the replacement costs of items stolen, such as the loss of a computer or laptop. The key here is theft prevention and that's how DataDots™ can help.

The DataDot™ Solution

If you are looking for a solution to combat fixture and furnishings theft in your home or business, DataDot™ Technology is the answer. The DataDot™ Business & Personal Kit marks your personal and business property with its own unique identification. This PIN, unique to all the dots in the kit, is registered on the DataDot™ International Database with the owner's contact information. If your property marked with DataDots™ is stolen, law enforcement can access this database to find the registered owner and return your property, regardless of how far away it is recovered.

When correctly installed, DataDots™ are virtually impossible to remove and can be applied to computers, printers, stereos, TVs, appliances, furniture, art, collectibles, jewelry, sports gear, cell phones and more. Unlike engraving, which provides only minimal protection by grinding a partial identifier on the item, DataDots™ do not diminish the appearance of an asset and have the added benefit of providing for the return of stolen merchandise through the DataDot™ registry. DataDots™ in the Business & Personal Kit can be read with a 50x magnifier.

The DataDot™ Business & Personal Kit is a do-it-yourself product that comes with everything you need to apply dots. They can be applied sparingly or densely and easily fit in hard to reach places. Amazingly, even a single DataDot™ found on a stolen item in the hands of a thief is enough for police to make an arrest on the spot for possession of stolen property.

Associates Inventory Service can also apply DataDots™ to your assets while we do your Home or Business Asset Inventory. We can, then include the application information in your Inventory Data Packet.

Each kit comes with "Protected by DataDot™" warning labels that can be applied to points of entry at your home or business to warn thieves your property is marked for police identification with DataDot™ Technology.
