A new device called Trip Wire Bang is available in South Africa, thanks to the Intelligence Bureau, and is aimed at helping families protect their homes against criminals.
The Trip Wire Bang provides an inexpensive early warning system which the Intelligence Bureau said is easy to install.
“The Trip Wire Bang can be installed between doorways, gateways, and driveways, and will be triggered when someone walks through the almost invisible gut,” the company said.
When the wire is tripped a loud explosion is set off, which may make the intruder think he has been injured.
The Trip Wire Bang can be installed above the height of your children and animals to ensure it is not triggered by accident.
The Trip Wire Bang costs R250 per unit, and is reusable by replacing the Hilti caps which are used to create the loud explosion.
