Protect Unveils Mobile Anti-Theft Fog Protection

Theft-control fog cannon can be activated by PIR sensor or remotely by SMS phone

Fog is a relatively new way of safeguarding valuables. The sole Danish and Nordic producer is Protect A/S in Hasselager south of Aarhus. Since Protect was founded in 2001 more than 10,000 alarm systems have been installed with fog protection in such diverse places as educational establishments, schools, opticians, jewelleries, radio-, TV- and IT-shops, petrol stations and in holiday cottages. Among others Jyske Bank has secured its 120 branches with fog cannons in order to avoid the theft of expensive furniture, audio- and IT equipment. Also Georg Jensen's design shop on the main shopping street in Copenhagen has been secured with fog – and JYSK and REMA 1000 are doing the same in a number of their shops.

The local contact is managed by a nationwide network of alarm installers and dealers.

The fog generators are always installed as a supplement to other burglar alarm system. When the alarm is tripped, the room (or rooms) is filled with dense fog in a few seconds. This keeps the burglar out of the room or forces him, if already inside, to leave immediately.

The fog is quite harmless to people and animals, electronic equipment and furniture, but so dense that it is impossible to find valuables in the room – or just to find your bearings!

Protect has, since its foundation in 2001, been expanding widely both nationally and internationally. Today it exports to more than 30 countries.

Recently sole distributors in USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Eastern Europe have successfully been established.
