Custom logo HomingPin lost baggage locator loops and asset tags
Our custom HomingPin lost property locator system puts the owner and the Airline, Hotel or person finding the lost property together, so that mislaid or lost property can be returned immediately and securely. We provide baggage loops with tags, key rings and asset labels that have a unique number on them. Those numbers are activated when registered by providing us with your mobile phone number(s) and email address.
Aproximately 1% of all bags checked by airlines are lost. For a family of 5 travelling twice a year that means there is a a 20% chance each year of a bag, cell phone or laptop computer going missing or being lost. The risk is much higher for flights involving transfers from one flight to another. When a bag is lost a family holiday or business trip can be ruined - and it can take up to 6 days for an airline to manually check all the airports in the system for the bag. In the meantime they cannot tell you where it is or when it will be back in your possession.
Mobile phones, cameras, IPads, laptops, passports, wallets and tablets can all be a nightmare when mislaid. When they arrive at a lost-property office or police station only 25% are ever returned to the owner simply because there is no simple way to track them down. After less than a month the 75% of these articles left are normally auctioned.
How HomingPin works
If found by an airport employee the owner can be easily located immediately by using the HomingPin network that is integrated with the Airlines WorldTracer system for baggage handling. In all other situations the finder simply connects to the owner by going online to homingpin.com. By inputing the HomingPin tracking number and location found a text message is sent instantly to the owner. The finder is not given information about the owner.
The owner then contacts the finder and arranges to get their property back. We provide 2 ways to make that happen:
1.For airlines we provide the airline with information on where the bag is instantly when it is found. They will then contact you and arrange for immediate transfer. No more waiting for them to find your bags, and you no longer wait in frustration to hear about when you will get them back.
2. Where property is found anywhere else and the owner can not easily return to the location where it was lost we can provide, at reasonable cost, a method of getting your property back from anywhere in the world. That includes luggage and lost items when the owner has returned home domestically or internationally.
