Airtags to find a stolen violin?
Hi, last night I had a nightmare, my violin was stolen. Because of the anguish I went through, I thought how to avoid it and I remembered the Apple Airtags. What is your opinion? It can be useful? Does anyone use them for the violin case?
Pros: the AirTags work with a vast network of devices to track lost/stolen objects. They will also notify you if you leave your case behind or if it “walks away.” also no cell data plan needed and pretty small. I plan on using them for several bags/cases in the family.
On the basis of my clients' experience, I can recommend this product as a good tracker/localizer:
Wow, Dimitri (the second), the Landairsea tracker requieres a 20$/month fee at least, I think it's not for me.
I'm constantly dreaming of losing my violin, usually 5 minutes before a concert. I'm not worried about it happening in reality but it would be nice to find something to make the dreams stop.
I have Airtags and Tile.
@Jesus, at $179 per year think of it as insurance. Only if the instrument is worth it to you, of course. For a Strad that is nothing.
On a related topic, what gives me worried thoughts with my violin is "mysterious disappearance." It would be terrible for my violin to be stolen. I really enjoy it. We've bonded.
I'm actually considering putting an airtag on my rosin!!
Neil, Having it stolen from your car is not a mysterious disappearance but without signs of breaking and entering it would be, either at home or from the car.
