In-Flight Theft Has Been Rising In The Past Few Years

International reports have stated that every year, there have been reported cases of in-flight theft. These mile-high thieves are a serious problem and reported cases have been rising in the past few years. CabinR’s unique security device deters a would-be thief who tries to open bags stored in overhead compartments and under seats while their owners sleep or are otherwise distracted.

CabinR Anti Theft Security is as Easy as 1, 2, 3.

How It Works

The bags include a detachable security blanket designed with multiple circuit boards that connect to highly sensitive motion sensors. After the user arms the security system by simply placing a unique RFID key card on top of the device, the bag will emit a loud alarm if the sensors detect theft activity. Normal movement won't trigger the alarm, but abnormal orientations or tampering will.

Peace of mind wherever you are

Never worry about your bags again with CabinR's Discovery Travel Backpack and Vista Travel Messenger Bag. Whether on an airplane or exploring a busy market, CabinR's first-of-its-kind anti-theft sensors will keep your belongings safe from prying hands.

CabinR technology is safe to use on planes

The RFID technology does not conflict with in-flight communication devices – and the sensors are designed to distinguish between user activity or turbulence and an attempted robbery. The Lithium-Ion Polymer battery is 50 times smaller than the limit on airlines and thus is flight-permitted.

Patented and Certified

CabinR's technology has been granted patent in two countries and is patent-pending in three countries. It also fully complies with FCC requirements.

Fool-proof technology

When the alarm is triggered, a buzzer will generate a loud siren (95dB) until it's deactivated by using the unique RFID key card or by entering in a user-defined combination code. The alarm itself cannot be easily compromised, as the siren is too loud to be muffled and the buzzer location is hidden from sight – there is no "OFF" button for would-be thieves to locate.

Built to delight

The travel bags look great and function well with the underlying anti-theft technology. The key clip and pen slots and organizational pockets make them perfect for the cluttered traveler, and the luggage strap helps you race toward your gate with ease.

For its aesthetically pleasing and highly functional travel bags, CabinR won silver in the "Fashion and Travel Accessories Design" category at the 2018 A'Design Awards.

CabinR bags are much more than security systems

Besides the security system, CabinR Travel Bags are fully equipped to meet the needs of the modern traveler as well as for everyday use. Both bags are water repellent and include a laptop compartment, phone pocket, magnetic headphone dock, and sunglasses band. The Discovery Travel Backpack also features, among others, a shoe compartment, water bottle pockets, charging port and comfort shoulder straps.

Want to secure a larger suitcase? No problem!

The security system of the CabinR Bag can be detached and used separately to secure any type of bag. No installation or modification to the bag required. To use the blanket, the user simply places it inside any bag on top of personal items, and then activates it with an RFID key card.

Travel with peace of mind knowing that your personal belongings are safe.

Our Story

"My inspiration for this project came from an unfortunate personal experience of having my wedding engagement ring stolen during a trip. Someone must have gone through my bag when I was sleeping. I later found out that plane theft does actually happen quite often and has been rising in the past few years. Therefore, I set out to design a travel security bag that not only secures my belongings, but also give me peace of mind while traveling."  

-Michael

Risks and challenges

There are always challenges and unpredictable obstacles when making a project become a reality, and CabinR is no exception. It is actually a complicated project with many moving parts. Therefore, there could be delays in production.

However, we have years of experience working with both bag manufactures and electronic factories. Therefore we are confident that we can smooth out the process and deliver our backers products of high quality.
