A warning for those who leave on vacation: take care what you write on your luggage tag (but discretion is not the only advantage of the Spotty luggage tags).  #tag #luggagetag #burglars #lostluggage

You don't lose your (smart)phone on purpose. But the fact if you get it back or not is in your own hands. How to increase the chance? #smartphone #lost #found

When you lose your camera or your camcorder is stolen, it’s always painful. The financial aspect can be covered by insurance – although that insurance isn’t cheap. But, often, you’ve also become attached to your camera, you’ve acquired matching accessories and, over the years, you’ve become familiar with how to handle it. Even worse, together with your camera, you’re also likely to lose invaluable holiday or family photos. How can you avoid that, and at minimal expense? #photoinsurance

This time, let’s look at a different activity to returning lost items via Spotty QR codes. There are many useful applications for QR codes, and a nice one is the potential to bring your photo albums to life by including video in them as well. And it’s easy to do. Below follows an explanation in three easy steps.

You might think that the Spotty lost&found service only works with the Spotty QR code stickers that can be purchased in our web shop. Nothing is further from the truth. When registering an item, you can let Spotty generate a code for you and apply this code yourself to your item, by whatever means you find suitable. The QR code is optional and is mainly intended to return your item even easier to you. #lostandfound

How did we come up with the idea for Spotty? Simple enough: We once lost our house keys the same day we were due to depart on holiday. Our luggage and plane tickets were still in the house, and the clock was ticking. We’ve never been able to track down our house keys, and we called a lot of places that told us they hadn’t been handed into them. It’s highly likely that someone did find them and handed them in somewhere … but where? We then had to pay a locksmith at Sunday rates to open the house lock with a drill. We knew there was clearly room for improvement.

A remark we often hear is that many finders would return a keychain, but would keep a phone or other valuables. We started to investigate this ourselves, but after a few online searches, we came across some remarkable findings

Why should the finder always get a reward from the owner? This follows from live tests that we performed, in which we deliberately “lost” items in the street and filmed and analysed the behaviour of finders.
