Instruments & Gear

The BAM app is an app for the smart instrument case. Musical instruments can be easily located, and their location tracked via the app.

In addition, information such as temperature and humidity are measured via sensors in the music case, so that the right conditions for wood instruments can always be ensured.

The data is provided by Juconn IoT technology. SIM cards with data roaming are provided by Vodafone.

In addition to the tracking of data of the instrument case, orchestras or bands can organize themselves via this app. These include features such as a news feed, a chat, and an event calendar for organizing rehearsals and concerts. The groups can organize themselves around their rehearsals and performances as well as share photos and videos.
