Victorians are taking measures into their own hands, and trying to repel home invaders by installing alarms, which will illicit non-toxic fog on command.
This fog takes only seconds to completely fill homes, following a simple click of a button. This will cut off the intruder’s sight and hopefully, cause them to flee.
The alarm is selling for around $3,500, and has been implemented by a number of Victorian jewellers and convenience stores, following a string of violent robberies.
The state saw 49,042 break-ins and burglaries in 2017, and this new contraption is taking a bat at reducing these numbers.
The fog alarm has only been implemented in a small number of residential homes, but already the homeowners say it’s provided them with a greater peace of mind.
