Data Dot

Data Dot System

Park Distance Controler

I'm a tiny little dot, etched with a unique indetification number. 10 000 of me go into and onto your vehicle in at least 88 different positions contaminating the vehicle and it's components making them useless to both thieves and chop-shops. While I may be easy to find, I'm also impossible to completly remove. I work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year without maintenance and without power improving your vehicles recovery.

Each DataDot is the size of a grain of sand and is laser-etched with a unique identifying code. Hundreds of the tiny dots are sprayed onto the protected asset with an ultraviolet adhesive. Although nearly invisible to the naked eye, they can be found easily by using a simple ultraviolet blacklight.

The DataDot database is accessible by Law Enforcement agencies 24 hours a day, allowing instant identification.


As a result of statistical evidence, DataDot South Africa is in a position to guarentee its product
