Track Your Target with Detection Powders, Markers and UV Lights

If you have reason to suspect that a thief or someone else may be spying on you by going through your personal papers or entering a restricted space without permission, these products can help you catch them. I would like to share with you some great spy gear to help you track a person's actions.

Detection Powder

Detection powders usually come in two forms: one being the UV detection powders and the other being visible detection powders. So, what exactly is the difference between the two? Let's take a look into each product.

UV Detection Powder

UV detection powders sell for about $40 and are used in many situations. From dusting door knobs, buildings, clothing, cars, papers, objects, file cabinets and more, this light weight powder is invisible to the naked eye and can only be seen with a black light. The person will not know that they have been caught until the moment you want to catch them.

Visible Detection Powder

Visible detection powders are used in the same way as UV detection powders and cost the same too. The difference in visible detection powders is that the fine particles in this product are virtually invisible until the amino acids in the skin react with the powder. A noticeable stain will appear letting everyone know that the person just handled something that didn't belong to them. It also doesn't wash off for days!

It really depends on your preference as to the way you hope to catch a person. No matter which you choose, both products are non-toxic so there won't be any ‘damage' done to the person. You know, just in case you are afraid of getting sued.

UV Marker and Light Kits

UV Markers are often used on money by stores, banks etc. The marker leaves an invisible line that can only be detected under a UV light such as a black light. These markers are a great way to mark your property so the thief doesn't see it but you can prove it.

Combination UV Light and Pen Set

The UV Security Marking Pen & UV Light set is very affordable at under $30. As you can see this particular item has a marker on one end and a light at the other. This makes for a highly convenient tool worth every penny.

UV Lamp and Marker Kit

An Ultraviolet Lamp With Flash Light And UV Marking Pen Kit is under $40. This is a little bulkier and a little more expensive. If you want a secretive device this might not be what you are looking for, but on the other hand if a larger and more powerful kit is what you need then it would be a valuable asset.

How Could You Use These Spy Tools?

Do you have a job where you deal with important or confidential information? Of course you try and keep it safe but what if you begin noticing that these documents you have sworn to protect and keep secret are being touched by housekeepers, neighbors, acquaintances, girlfriends/boyfriends or your children's friends? What if you know that someone has been in your private office but can't figure out whom?

Usually for under $50 you can find these helpful spy tools. It is a very inexpensive way to catch people touching or taking your stuff. The point is this: if you have reason to suspect foul play then you need to find out for your own piece of mind who you can trust and who you can't.

I would need the visible detection powder though unsure if it's ok by law here to do that...and seems a bit expensive. It would be great to use to see if anyone do enter the area.

It's a very cool way of seeing whether or not you are just paranoid or if you have a reason to worry!
