An Edinburgh-based home security firm is on the hunt for a reformed burglar to help test if a new high-tech security system is ‘criminal proof’.
According to the Daily Record, Boundary Technologies are wanting to ensure that their new specialised security systems are up to scratch, and are willing to pay a convicted robber who is no longer serving a sentence to see if they can get past the new protection.
The revolutionary new system is set to be the first smart alarm in the UK that uses smart technology to alert the authorities, prompting an automatic police response to a property.
The person who gets the job will be paid £40,000 a year pro-rata, and will initially be wanted to help for at least two days within the first month.
Christopher Stacey, co-director of Unlock, a national advocacy charity for people with criminal records, explained that people with criminal records are often assumed to be untrustworthy, but businesses should look beyond someone’s past and the potential they could bring to an organisation.
Robin Knox, Co-Founder and CEO of Boundary, said: “Our system is designed to outsmart a burglar all by itself, so we thought who better to test the product than a reformed burglar, who has turned their life around and can offer us unmatched advice and expert knowledge when it comes to the tricks and tactics used by criminals when attempting to break-in and steal from a property.”
He added that as well as helping to improve the products, the company is passionate about helping people get back on their feet, especially during the coronavirus crisis, where jobs can be more difficult to find.
