Smart Luggage Tag
Gone are the days of writing your personal contact information on a disposable paper tag. With Scout Travel, you can store your contact instructions in a digital format, which can be easily accessed by scanning the unique QR code printed on Scout Travel. Exactly what contact information you share is entirely at your discretion, and can be updated in real-time via the Knog App. In addition, when someone scans your QR code and sees your details, they’ll also be prompted to send you a message from the contact details page. If they do, you’ll be alerted that someone has scanned your tag and / or got in touch and their message will be emailed to you. E.g. “Your bag has been left with Qantas baggage services”.
Utilise Apple Find My Network
With Scout Travel attached to your luggage, you can enjoy the peace-of-mind of always being able to check exactly where your belongings are anywhere, anytime, by simply using the Apple Find My app.
Motion-Sensitive 85 dB Alarm
The best security features are those that deter the loss of your luggage in the first place. Which is why the 85db motion-sensitive alarm at the heart of Scout Travel’s design is a truly outstanding feature. From sitting in a busy café to storing luggage in a hotel lobby, increase peace-of-mind by arming Scout Travel via the Knog app, with any subsequent movement of its accelerometer triggering the impossible-to-ignore 85db alarm on Scout Travel, while also triggering an audible alarm on your iPhone (when in Bluetooth range). This alert gives you the opportunity to take action and recover your belongings.
Every aspect of Scout Travel has been designed with security in mind, and nothing communicates this more overtly than our tamper-proof security cable attachment. Constructed from a braided stainless-steel cable coated with a non-abrasive nylon, Scout Travel’s tether allows for a highly secure attachment that won’t damage the very thing it is attached to. Every Scout Travel comes supplied with two cable lengths, to cater for different needs. The tether attaches to Scout Travel via an anti-tamper security bolt that requires the use of the supplied Knog anti-tamper tool to remove it.
No Subscriptions Fees
Unlike GPS-based trackers, Scout Travel’s compatibility with the Apple Find My network means that once you have purchased a Scout Travel there are no ongoing subscription fees to worry about.
There’s no need to stress about leaving your carry-on behind or someone taking your luggage off the bus. With separation alerts enabled in the Apple Find My app, you’ll get a notification if your Scout Travel drops out of bluetooth range. You can also set Trusted Locations, which are locations where you can leave an item without receiving a notification.
USB-C Rechargeable Battery
Scout Travel is USB-C rechargeable and utilises a high-performance 155 mAh LiPo battery, removing the need for single use batteries. A fully charged Scout Travel provides up to 2 months of use between charges. We have also taken the guesswork out of knowing the amount of remaining battery life, as the Knog app will send a notification to your iPhone once the device has only 20% charge remaining, giving you plenty of notice to recharge the unit.
Built Tough For Real-World Travel
Scout Travel has been designed for travel. Constructed from fibre-reinforced plastic and then over-molded in silicone, Scout Travel is purpose-built to cope with the rigorous demands of travel; however rough things get. Backed by Knog's 2 year warranty.
Remote Chime Function
Many travellers have been in a scenario where they need to identify their belongings in a pile of very similar-looking luggage. This is where Scout Travel’s remote chime function is useful. Using the Knog app, you need only activate their remote chime and a sound will emit from your Scout Travel, making finding your luggage easy.
NFC Technology & Lost Mode
If a Scout Travel attached piece of luggage is lost, you can open the Apple Find My app and turn on Lost Mode. Then once it is detected by a device in the Apple Find My network, you will automatically receive a notification. You can also set it so someone can get your contact info by tapping the Scout Travel with an NFC-capable smartphone (most do).
Charge & Pairing Indicating LEDs
Our Intelligent LEDs take the guesswork out of using your Scout Travel. The LED glows Blue when it is actively paired with your iPhone. This same LED glows Red whilst charging and then turns Green once fully charged.
Scout Travel is showerproof but please don’t go chucking it into the hotel pool.
Privacy Is Always Priority
Only you can see where your Scout Travel is. Your location data and history are never stored on the Scout Travel itself. Devices that relay the location of your Scout Travel also stay anonymous, and that location data is encrypted every step of the way. So not even Knog or Apple know the location of your Scout Travel or the identity of the device that helps find it.
