Gripping XY Story

Working for any kind of production company requires a lot of expensive equipment. Whenever you're at a photo, film or video shoot, it's always important to make sure you have everything with you. Any thing from light stands, sandbags, bulbs, cameras, soft boxes, and a long list of other things, it's almost impossible not to forget to keep track of everything on the way in or out. I can't tell you how many time's I've had to go back to look for something I left on location or had to loop back to the office to grab a bag I forgot. My team and I travel quite a bit, and we needed something that could attach to our gear and make sure we always had what we needed when we needed it.

Thanks to XY3, I can have security knowing that even if I leave something behind, I can see where we left it and quickly recover it. Their last known location features help us find that one rogue LED panel in no time, and with the KeepNear notifications, I can be notified if I walk out of range of any item I've marked as important. You wouldn't believe how much time this has saved me, and between the security and the time saved, I'd say that the XY3 really is a life-saver. You can say with the XY3 bluetooth trackers, the XY Find It app and my smart phone, I've really been able to keep a grip on things!
