Once armed, any movement of a Scout fitted Bike will trigger the motion-sensitive audio alarm discouraging any further movement and alerting the bike’s owner, both by the sound of the alarm and via a notification that is automatically sent to the owner’s iPhone (when in Bluetooth range).

Then in a scenario where a bike fitted with Scout is not where the owner has left it, it can be quickly located using Apple’s network via the ‘Find My’ app. 

  • Motion-sensitive 85 db audio alarm for immediate deterrence
  • Can be located quickly using Apple's 'Find My' app
  • Operated using Knog's iOS app
  • Mounts to standard water cage braze-ons
  • Can be mounted under water cage for discretion
  • Use supplied anti-tamper screws to mount securely
  • Neon silicone cover provided to advertise security device (if desired)
  • Arm / disarm using button (within 1.5 m) or app within bluetooth range
  • LEDs show alarm status & battery charge
  • USB-C rechargeable with 6 month battery life
  • Water resistant IP66 rating (washproof)
  • Weighs just 25 grams

If you want peace-of-mind that you've done everything you can to secure your bike, Scout is an essential piece of kit.

Well thought out design and easy to use

We have been using AirTags on our bikes for a while but Knog’s Scout takes it to the next level combining an alarm and FindMy tracking. Will be buying them for all of our bikes!

Nearly Perfect, Happy to Use It.

Packaging: Clever and sustainable.

Security Screws: Great if you don't have Hexlox, not as good if you DO have Hexlox and don't want to keep track of another security screw key.

Hi-Vis Cover: Debatable in value. Would be better if it had holes so it can be secured by the screws.

Device Hardware: A little bulkier than I expected after mounting my bottle cage. I like the easily accessible charging port. I would prefer that the button was inset and under the hardware since it needs to be pressed to reset the device.

Setup: Easy.

Audible Shake Alarm: For my use case,the shake alarm is way too sensitive so I have it turned off. I work at a massive bicycle friendly university and people bump into others' parked bikes all the time. Also, if my bike gets stolen, I don't want to alert the thief to the tracker as he may start bashing it and damage my frame. I prefer a stealth alarm to my phone that allows me to direct the police to the thief.

App: No bugs that I can find. Adjusting the settings is a little confusing. One settings screen is accessible using the menu "cog" graphic, but the other one is by the "Knog Scout" label using the traditional three-dot graphic. The two settings screens should be merged. Additionally, the alarm settings can be a little clearer to differentiate between the Scout volume, Phone Volume, and Phone Volume via Headphones.

When selecting the Alarm Tone (phone), it should give you the option to hear the tone (I don't know what they all sound like).

When selecting the shake Alarm Tone to come from the Scout, that too should be audible from the phone simply because the user may not be near the Scout to hear the tone and decide.

Wish List: (1) Geo-fencing. More than a shake alarm, I want to be alerted if my bike is X feet away from where I originally left it. That way I can immediately call the police and tell them that I'm actively tracking my stolen (and registered) ride. (Which matters where I'm from because the police enjoy catching bike thieves.) (2) Different color covers to blend in with bottle cage or frame (again, with the holes for the screws to go through).

Something Weird: My Scout will "chirp" from time to time while I'm riding my bike. I don't know why and I don't know how to disable the chirp.

Great product and fits well

If you want to buy an AirTag but don’t know how to add it on the bike, then this is the solution. there is no place on bike where an AirTag can fit securely and still retain full signal. This product solves that issue and a perfect solution.

Amazing device for added peace of mind.

Well-made and easy to set up and install with the Knog App and included QR code instructions. Very impressed with this excellent product.

'Black stealth for discreet protection or neon yellow for overt protection. The choice is yours.'

‘As soon as the Knog site opens for ordering, I’m ordering a slate of these.’

A Bike Alarm & Finder Like No Other

For improved security and recovery

Dual Function LEDs

Scout feature’s dual function LEDs that show at a glance if the Scout is alarmed. The same LEDs display the charge status of the battery.

Arming Scout Is Quick & Easy

Arming or disarming the Scout alarm is made simple and can be achieved in two ways; via the button on the side of the device when the connected iPhone is in close proximity (< 1.5 m) or via the Knog app when the device is within Bluetooth range.

Mounting & Securing

With Scout, there’s the choice of overt or discreet security. To advertise that the bike is fitted with Scout, simply use the neon yellow silicone cover provided. For more discreet security, attach Scout to the bike via the bottle cage mounts using tamper-proof security screws without the cover.

Mounting With A Bottle Cage

Scout’s extremely low profile and compact design allows for it to be neatly bolted and hidden underneath a bottle cage. This is a great way to keep Scout hidden.
