The Breath-Seeker device has been designed as a security measure to monitor the Co2 levels in confined spaces. It is a stand-alone monitoring and tracking device which rapidly alerts haulage companies, drivers and vacant property owners when they have possible stowaways or thieves on board, or in their vacant spaces, by monitoring Co2 levels. With a full UK patent, it is the only device on the market which can be left to monitor Co2 levels when the confined space is in motion.
The easy to place device with magnetic attachments is trackable through GSM and GPS signals which help send an accurate location of where the stowaways or crime is happening. Using an online portal, operators can see where the containers are, whether in motion or static, and can pin-point the exact moment and location when the Co2 levels have increased. This results in the operator having time to safely inform security or police about the situation.
Along the Calais border there has been roughly 39,000 attempts to cross the border in the last year, making it a dangerous place to be for lorry drivers. With a fine of up to £2000 per stowaway, drivers and companies have been increasing their security measures. However, this is not always the case with stowaways getting increasingly clever finding new ways to get on board. The Breath-Seeker device informs the driver so they can pull over into a controlled check point to inform the police and remain at a safe distance
