"Is SNAGG a traceable or GPS type system?
No. SNAGG uses the time proven technology of unalterable code technology that has been responsible for the return of thousands of pets in the past few years. GPS requires significant battery power to keep a signal. While Snagg stays on the forefront of this technology, it has not evolved to be concealable as a theft recovery system in devices that do not have a built in power source. The continuous cost of data and batteries make Snagg a more effective solution.
Who Has Scanners? Who Needs Them?
The Snagg system relies on the power of the World Wide Web to connect owners with their priceless possessions. When an item is reported stolen, Snagg begins scanning their partner databases for these stolen items based on serial number, model number or other information. We even provide pictures to positively identify your product to pawnshops worldwide. When your item is flagged stolen, a report goes to necessary authorities including all information. The report includes instructions for obtaining a scanner if one is not readily available. Usually police use one of 400,000 standard pet scanners already available nationwide to prove the identity of the owner and return your asset."
