Airlines Are Banning Smart Luggage Tags – Dynotags Are Not Affected…

An alarming increase in the number of smoke and fire incidents on airlines from passengers’ malfunctioning lithium-ion batteries is causing concern among safety and aviation experts. Because all sorts of gadgets are powered with these batteries, they are a cause of increasing risk in aviation while all other aviation risks are decreasing over time.

According to the FAA, the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries present in the luggage pose a fire threat in cargo areas.  After all that happened in recent years with Samsung Note 7, Hoverboards and various devices (chargers, laptops, music players,  etc.) there is consensus on the root cause:  Lithium-ion batteries.  Once ignited, these battery fires are extremely difficult to extinguish and require specific firefighting procedures.

At the recommendation of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a host of airlines—including American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Delta, and Hawaiian Airlines—have announced that high-tech luggage and luggage tags with embedded batteries won’t be allowed on flights due to safety concerns.  It is expected that all major carriers will adopt this policy to reduce risk of incidents.

However, Dynotag Web/Location Enabled Smart Tags are not affected from this ban, as they do not contain any batteries or electronics.   All dynotags keep their information and programming logic in the Dynotag Cloud Service (DCS) – making the physical tags maintenance-free.

New Life and New SuperPetTag for Fiona!

 

Through our ShelterAngel charity program, we send free Dynotag SuperPetTags to good people who adopt from pet shelters. All we ask for is the story for the adoption and a couple photos. We find this recent exchange about “Fiona” particularly heartwarming:

C.R. wrote:

I’ve always been a cat person, but sadly, my ex-husband took our cats in the divorce, and my new boyfriend is allergic. So I started Googling “cat-like dogs” and one of the breeds that came up was basenji. The central coast of California, where I relocated to be near my boyfriend, is not prime basenji territory; it would be a long drive to LA or beyond to find one to adopt. I checked several local shelters, looking for a dog that would meet the criteria set by me and my reluctant landlady: adult, mellow, quiet, and friendly with other dogs since my workplace welcomes canines.

At the third shelter, I saw a 16-pound tan dog called Harmony. They said she was a chihuahua mix, about 4 years old. I was far from sure, but thought she might be the one, so I called my boyfriend to meet her. He agreed, and I filled out the paperwork to take her home. We renamed her Fiona, and have since learned a few things about her: she’s part basenji (and probably dachshund, terrier and something else), she almost never barks (only four times in two months), she’d never seen stairs before, and she’s really about 6 years old. She’s also become very devoted to me, which is endearing and also a little scary. I’m glad she’s part of my life.

Fiona looks so happy and content – we are glad you found each other – and are happy we could be a part of this beautiful story…

Did you adopt a pet from a shelter? Do you know someone who has or is thinking about it?  Let them know about our ShelterAngel charity program so we can send them a FREE Super Pet Tag also.

Convertible Smart Tags: Another first from Dynotag®

The most versatile Smart Luggage Tags in the world are here!

When Dynotag® Smart Tags were first offered a couple years ago, they came in a single style: Laminated synthetic material in white. Once they became the best selling Smart Tags of their kind, we expanded our offerings to include a variety of  new styles and sizes to meet our customers’ needs.

We always seek input from our customers – and many of you asked us for a larger metal tag, still with all the capabilities of a dynotag but a able to accommodate a business card when needed – and you wanted them in a variety of colors to be more visible…

And now, we are introducing another first: Convertible Luggage Tags!

Blue Convertible Tag at work.....
Blue Convertible Tag at work on a backpack…

We call them “Convertible” because the same tag can be used in a variety of ways.

  • They are ready to use as soon as you receive them after a simple activation!
  •  If you wish, you can flip the card insert and write your contact information – just like an old fashioned luggage tag (comes in handy if you are traveling to a remote island with no Iternet!)
  • Or, you can insert your business card, logo or favorite photo to display on the “window” side of the tag. The back of the tag can still have the dynotag information – or you can flip that to expose a clean blank metal.

We made then from tough aluminum in variety of eye-catching colors, so you can find one that will show well with your luggage, briefcase or bag.

A tough, braided steel wire loop is included with each tag for secure attachment to your property. A drop of glue in the screw barrel makes the loop closure permanent!

Now available in Ruby Red, Cool Silver, Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue, Electric Orange, and Midnight Black!

When it comes to battle-ready toughness, it is difficult to beat steel… So, again based on user input, we are also introducing two new “Fun Design” Deluxe Steel tags to join our best-selling Black Deluxe Steel Tag!

Moving / unpacking made easier with dynotags!

Moving can be a hassle. Packing all those boxes, labeling them, then moving them into your new place or into storage is very time consuming and confusing.

Dynotag is here to help! You can use our unique ready to use sticker sets to list the contents of the boxes and even upload a photo of the contents into the dynotag sticker.  Especially if you are moving long distance and have hired a professional mover, boxes can easily get shuffled and after a few weeks, it is tough to remember which box contains what.

Our Web/Location Enabled QR Smart stickers are maintenance free, waterproof/weatherproof, tough, come with permanent adhesive and are easy to apply. You get three 36-sticker block activated unique sticker sets. You activate each block once to add them to your account. You get 108 unique stickers enabling you to label not only boxes, but furniture and other household items for your move!

You are probably thinking you need to be tech savvy and this is a lot of work just to label some boxes. Not so! From personal experience I can tell you that moving is the worst! Packing up your life in boxes is easy. You feel accomplished when you are done packing and ready to go. The comes the hard part; unpacking! At that point – all the boxes look alike and it is frustrating to remember what is in which box. Labeling the boxes with dynotags is easy once you do the first couple boxes.

Once you activate your dynotags using the activation code included in the package, they become yours. As the owner, you can update tag contents any time over the web and even secure information using a password if you wish. Sign into your dynotag account to view detailed access records of your tag and even see the tag view accesses in your tag’s access log and on a map. Any device viewing the tag content is requested by Dynotag service to report its location. Smartphones have detailed awareness of their location at all times, with GPS assist and other location services. So if a box is misplaced, its dynotag can even help it to safely come back home!

Using dynotags can be a time saver and help keep your sanity during the move. Unpacking is stressful, but when you know exactly where everything is, you will be more in control and at ease.
