Knog Scout bicycle alarm system with locating function
The future of bicycle security in terms of theft protection is here and is called "Scout". The Australian manufacturer Knog has created a small device, which uses an inconspicuous bicycle alarm system with a
app-controlled location function.
Once the device is armed, every movement of a Scout-equipped bike triggers an 85dB alarm sound. In parallel, the owner of the bike receives a notification that is automatically sent to the iPhone if it is within Bluetooth™ range.
If a bike equipped with Scout is no longer where the owner left it, it can quickly be located over Apple's network via the "Find My?" app. You can mount Scout on the frame of your bike in two ways. Either offensively visible as a deterrent with a neon-yellow cover on the bottle cage eyelets or hidden under the drinking bottle cage with the supplied, tamper-proof screws.
Many things can be fine-tuned via the app. You can adjust the movement sensitivity in five different levels. This makes sense if you don't want the alarm to go off immediately if someone accidentally touches your bike just briefly.
You can choose between eight different alarm tones and it is also possible to activate a "silent alarm". Then you will only be informed via the app when you are in Bluetooth range.
If you want to be sure that you have done everything you can to secure your bike, Scout is an indispensable measure.
