By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 06, 2018

Milestone's Co-Founder Henrik Friborg has invested in CSI Protect, exclusive US dealer of forensic marking startup SelectaDNA, a company that claims to "reduce burglaries by up to 83%" by spraying identification onto thieves as they flee. And the startup has now integrated with Milestone's VMS.

But what is SelectaDNA and is it something worth using and worth offering by integrators? In this note, based on interviewing SelectaDNA we review their use case, potential issues and best fits.
