The Bluetooth device that can guard your valuables


Keeping an eye on your valuables can be difficult when you’re travelling and on the move but a new device can make it a lot easier.

Secu4Bags is a credit card-sized Bluetooth transmitter which can be easily slipped into your bag or wallet and linked to your smartphone using a free app.

If the Secu4Bags device exceeds the 10 metre Bluetooth range from the smartphone a 100 decibel alarms sounds. 

According to iWorld, the Australian distributor of the product, Secu4Bags is the safety accessory officially approved by Apple for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

The Secu4Bags will also work with Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows mobile devices.

Losing your valuables is horrendous experience and often the thieves take advantage of crowded situations like airports and travellers who take their eyes off their luggage for a few seconds.

That’s all it takes. And your things are gone – never to be seen again.

It will also go off  if a person walks off and forgets their bag behind and gets further than the 10-metre Bluetooth radius.

A device like Secu4Bags can give travellers peace of mind because it is constant touch with your smartphone.

And when the 100 decibel alarm sounds everyone will be able to hear it. That is about as loud as a chainsaw or a passing truck.

The Secu4Bags device connects to a smarthone using BluetoothSecu4Bags founder and CEO Ralph Rimet said he came up with the idea for the product after a friend left his wallet on a train before it was safely returned to him.

“I thought there should be a device that automatically does that,” he said.

“That was the beginning of Secu4Bags – an innovative alarm system that helps make sure your luggage doesn’t stray to far from your side.”

Secu4Bags will be available in September for $99.95. The smartphone app can be downloaded for free from your device’s app store or the Secu4 website.
