How to Track Your Camera Equipment With itemit
Many of us love to take photographs on our phones but some of us love to take photographs with cameras. Taking a photograph with a camera is completely different, it adds a touch of something special. Photographers can capture wonderful photographs and videos on modern cameras.
However, cameras, like all equipment, have the propensity to go missing. The good news is that itemit’s asset tracking software can help you to track your camera. Itemit can even help you to track your camera equipment.
Thanks to the way that our tracking software works, tracking camera equipment has never been easier. Here’s how you can track your equipment with ease:
Add All Of Your Camera Equipment To The Software
Adding your camera equipment to the tracking software is easy. You simply create a file for every asset you have. Once you have created a file for your assets you’re halfway there.
Every asset can have multiple pieces of information about it added to the software. For example, you could add the asset’s
- Name, model, and make
- The type of asset it is
- Serial number
- Height, width, and depth
- Insurance details
- Warranty information
- Price at purchase
- Estimated current value
- Estimated sale value
- Estimated life span
- Maintenance reminders
- Photographs of the asset
- The instruction details
- Any other relevant information
All of the above information can be added to the asset tracking software. This ensures that you always have access to the insurance details, for example. Should something go wrong with a tripod you can check the insurance and warranty details if you wish. You can have the information that you need at the touch of a button.
Tracking The Location Of Your Camera Equipment
It is entirely possible for you to track the location of your camera equipment. All that you need to do is affix a QR code or barcode to the asset. Simply assign the QR code or barcode to the asset and you can track it.
This feature can prove to be useful if you work in multiple locations. It can help you to understand which assets are in which locations and therefore, retrieve them if you need to.
Location tracking using itemit’s asset tracking software can improve levels of security. You can see where your assets are, all day, every day. Simply log into the software and check the location of your camera bag, for example. You will be shown the asset’s last-known location instantly. This makes asset retrieval so much easier.
From time to time, you may not know what assets you should take to a photo shoot. Here is where itemit can help you. Thanks to the way that our asset tracking software works, you can create collections.
You may choose to create a collection of every asset you need to take to a photo shoot. Adding the assets to a collection can make life easier. The next time you have a photo shoot you can check the list of assets that you need to take. Therefore, it’s unlikely that you’ll leave anything behind.
Book Equipment In And Out
If you work in or run a photography business you may find this feature useful. You and members of your team can book equipment in and out. This feature allows you to see which team members have which cameras and other pieces of equipment.
In addition to this, it also helps you to understand which equipment is used more than others. With this knowledge, you can make a more informed decision about whether you need to purchase more tripods, for example.
Being able to book equipment in and out adds an extra layer of security. It means you know which team member has what equipment at all times. Couple this with the location tracking feature and security is vastly improved. It, therefore, makes sense to use itemit’s tracking software so you too can keep a close eye on your equipment
