Traveling Just Got Safer With The Beachbug Alarm System

Beachbug Alarm System

Vacations are great when we get them, but the worst part about going on vacation is worrying that your stuff will be safe while you’re out having fun. It’s a fact: Smartphone theft is the fastest growing crime on the planet, and it happens especially often when people are on vacation. We love our smart devices, and take them with us wherever we go, but of course, many of the activities we enjoy while on vacation (especially anything that involves the water) aren’t very smart device friendly. We leave them somewhere and hope for the best, but too often, when we get back, our favorite gear is gone..

The good news is, that doesn’t have to be the case anymore. The Beachbug alarm system was designed for just such occasions. It’s called “Beachbug,” but of course, the security system works anywhere. It’s simple, ingenious, and effective. Basically, it’s a portable alarm system, attached to a smart sensor, attached to a sturdy length of steel cable. You affix the Beachbug to a duffle or other tote bag, all your stuff goes inside, and the Beachbug attaches to bag via the cable.

As mentioned, it’s steel fiber, so a would-be thief is going to have a hard time getting it off the bag where your valuables are stored, and the smart sensor can tell the difference between random jostling of the alarm and someone actually picking your bag up and trying to walk off with it.

You can set a personal security code when you get the device, and if YOU pick up the bag, you’ve got ten seconds to enter your code to deactivate the alarm. Of course, a would-be thief won’t know your code, so after ten seconds is up, the Beachbug emits a warbling alarm to alert you to the fact that someone is trying to steal your stuff! At one hundred decibels, it’s LOUD. Thieves like to operate quietly, so the moment the Beachbug starts wailing, odds are that the thief will simply drop your bag and run, so as to avoid being arrested.

The product actually comes with its own anti-theft tote, or, of course, you can simply affix it to one you already have. It runs off of a battery, but you can recharge it, and the Beachbug has a handy USB port expressly for that purpose. That makes the Beachbug more aesthetically pleasing, because you don’t have to look at an ugly battery hatch. Everything’s self-contained, and all you have to do is plug into any device with a USB port to give the battery a charge when it starts running low.

Most people see things like this and figure “yeah, that sounds great, but what’s it made out of?” That’s an important question, because if a would-be thief doesn’t just drop your bag and run, then the other thing he’s likely to do is to pick up a rock or something to try and smash the alarm to get it to shut up. Good luck with that. Despite its fun, cheerful appearance, the Beachbug is a pretty tough customer, and anyone trying to break it to make it stop is in for a rude surprise. Fashioned of tough ABS plastic and durable aluminum. It’s simply going to be more trouble than it’s worth for the thief to take the time that would be needed to get the alarm to stop howling.

There is one drawback, however: You can’t get it until this summer (summer, 2016). That’s when they officially start shipping. Of course, you can visit their website, click on the “Get The Bug” link, enter your email address, and the company will send you a notification as soon as you can make your purchase.
