I spoke with Brian Schuh, their Chief Information Officer, who informed me that the company has manufacturing partnerships with companies like Carvin Guitars, who includes an RFID chip in every guitar they make and Category 5 Surfboards. The company is also working with a number of pawn shops.
SNAGG will initially launch with two units that each serve a unique purpose and fit almost every need. The GL200 is a fully-rechargeable unit that can be hardwired to your car or equipment to allow the units to be continuously tracked without charging or maintenance. The other unit, the GL500, is a stand-alone GPS that can achieve a three year battery life with their unique daily deep sleep mode.
The online tracking service can be viewed from a PC, Tablet or Smartphone. Tracking services start at $49 per year and include a daily notification of where your item is and the battery life remaining. The system can then remotely activate the units from daily to real-time tracking should the need arise. Police can then be notified of the location so they can locate and recover your equipment. As the system launches October 1st, SNAGG already has plans to improve their hardware, as well as customize the platform for partner needs.
"SNAGG remains on the cutting edge of technology and our newest system is built so that as the technology gets better, our system gets better," comments Schuh. "To remain a step ahead, we are constantly striving to improve the efficiency of our hardware and recovery systems. GPS technology to recover valuables is finally a practical option for us."
