Award-Winning Sensors that Detect Graffiti Vandalism While in Progress
A hometown is something to be proud of, but for decades graffiti has been a constant problem in many communities. For too long, cities have been fighting a losing battle, spending time and money cleaning graffiti when those resources would be better used improving other aspects of the city. Business owners and residents want a way to tackle the graffiti problem and clean up their cities.
The solution is to catch a graffiti tagger in the act. Unless taggers are apprehended, more graffiti will appear on the wall tomorrow, and city officials or local shop owners will have wasted their time. Surveillance systems can help catch vandals, but it takes time to analyze footage and identify and track down the culprit.We need a system that stops graffiti in real time.
At GraffitiTech, we understand that the only way to stop graffiti is to stop the person responsible. Our current solution: an award-winning detection system that alerts local authorities while the act of graffiti vandalism is still in progress.
Our detection system uses an ultrasonic sensor to identify the unique sound of an aerosol paint spray by differentiating between acoustic markers in the area. Once the sensor detects the telltale sound of spray paint, our system alerts the local authorities, leading to the arrest of the vandal, and stopping the defacement in its tracks.
Our newest solution, the GT-3, will also act as a powerful deterrent, and help to reduce graffiti vandalism on the protected walls.
With the essential addition of the GT-3, our systems will empower communities and businesses everywhere and help them take back their neighborhoods, their towns, and their quality of life.
The GraffitiTech technology is fully patented and easily deployable. We have two versions of our cost-effective systems to assist everyone affected by graffiti.
GT-1: Our original system is designed for law enforcement and the apprehension of graffiti taggers. The system can be configured and controlled remotely from anywhere in the world via an internet connection, and reports directly to law enforcement centers.
GT-3: Currently in development, this newest addition to our line of graffiti prevention systems is designed for integration into existing alarm and security systems. This model, equipped with our fully patented graffiti detection sensors, will also integrate a motion sensor, and can be configured with lights, pinhole cameras, and a verbal warning system. This will act as a deterrent as well as reduce the amount of damage caused, and because many security systems automatically alert the authorities, apprehension of the culprit is still possible.
