NZ Scorpion stings its first victims

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

NZ Scorpion stings it’s first victims

At 10pm on Friday 10th January 2014, 3-armed poachers on a quad bike entered a private forest at Woodhill, north west of Auckland.

Almost as soon as they had entered the private forest they woke up a Scorpion 1000, a new hidden covert intruder detection device the brainchild of Specialist Surveillance Services Limited.

Just like the sting from a real scorpion it was “game over” for the poachers.
Within 90 seconds the Scorpion 1000 sent an alert to a private security patrol giving the exact time of the alert and location of the poachers.

The poachers had no idea the private security patrol was closing in on them until they were bailed up and the local Police had them in custody.

Police seized two rifles; knives and hunting equipment, Charges have been laid relating to the poaching activities with the offenders due to appear in court. Trespass action has also been taken against the trio by the landowners.

The Scorpion 1000 is a game changer in the way remote or isolated location security can be managed states Roger Winslade a director of Specialist Surveillance Services Limited.
The Scorpion 1000 does not need mains power or a GSM network to operate, and is totally covert.

The Scorpion 1000 can help farmers, forest owners, contractors, councils, orchards, vineyard owners or anyone having theft problems or illegal access issues.
