Smartwater and Immobilise..

Bedfordshire Police have recently bought a quantity of an excellent technology called SmartWater, and have offered kits free to residents in the area.

It's definitely worth checking to see if this is available where you live, since it's an even better way to mark your property than the good ol' UV marker, since it contains a special 'DNA' that identifies it.

I spent much of yesterday wondering around the house with my iPaq, marking down model and serial numbers of much of the electronic kit we have, and I'm just about to submit the information to www.immobilise.com - one of a few websites on the internet that acts as a registry for personal property, and can be sought in the National Police Property Register if there's a theft of a burglary.

It's a reasonably good addition to the protection that home contents insurance offers.. it'll not replace everything (I've not put battery chargers and other bits and bobs on the list) but it's a start.
