This paper offers a view into loss and theft protection that is ubiquitous and omnipresent. The solution for loss and theft prevention rests in the resourcefulness of the application of networked wireless technologies and tech-facing applications that work concurrently to track items of value or importance absent human intervention unless needed to disrupt a loss or theft. The system described alerts users when a loss is imminent so that the user can retrieve the tagged item before it is actually lost or left behind. This approach places the control for loss and theft prevention in the hands of users. The added benefit is that this approach promotes privacy by design as an essential element of project development. Privacy is the single greatest challenge in a 24- 7 connected world. Solutions providing transparency to users and delivery of just-in-time communications to support user engagement at key points to effect a positive or avert a negative outcome is essential to maintain low dependency on remote computing solutions to problems.
