    We had 4 pieces of equipment stolen off a vacant home we were drying about two weeks ago.
    TILE found the equipment in a pawn shop YESTERDAY! Meeting the police at the pawn shop later today! Gotta Love technology!
    Money well spent!

    Did you put tile on all pieces of equipment, just random pieces, or just on jobs that are more high risk?

    Where did you buy them, Greg? I did a brief search and only found quantities of 8 in a pack. Also, what is the range?

    What does that mean? Why does the population matter?
    I know nothing about this product, but would love to have a way to track stolen equipment with this or something else..

    The tiles use the app to get found the more people using it the faster it is found and easier it is located. I think something like that.

    From what I read they cannot see it but rather it updates to your phone.
