A home security firm in Scotland is searching for a reformed burglar to test its new high-tech security system.
Edinburgh-based Boundary Technologies wants to ensure that its new specialised security systems are ‘criminal proof’, and are now looking for a convicted-but-time-served burglar to see if they can get past the new home security system, reports the Daily Record.
The company’s revolutionary new devices will be the first alarm system in the UK that makes use of smart technology to send an alert to the authorities and prompting an automatic police response.
The reformed criminal who fills the role will be paid a salary of £40,000 per year pro-rata and will be wanted to help out for a minimum of two days in the first month.
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 continued to say that the company is passionate about providing assistance to people in getting them back on their feet, and especially so during the current coronavirus pandemic as jobs can be harder to find.
Christopher Stacey, co-director of Unlock, a national advocacy charity for people with criminal records, commented that job applicants with criminal records are typically seen as untrustworthy and that businesses need to look beyond that and see the potential that someone could bring to an organisation.
