English term or phrase: tip and tell
I would like to know if there is an adequate equivalent for the "Tip and Tell" indicator attached to the outside of boxes/packages in a delivery. Thanks.

sensor de impacto / sensor de movimiento

Parece que es una especie de sensor que te dice si han manipulado de manera errónea el envío, en especial dándole golpes.

"Our televisions ship with impact and "tip and tell" sensors. When you receive the television please check to see that they have not turned red. If they have turned red, This does not mean the television is definitely damaged but you should mark on waybill that they have been triggered and if possible open the box immediately and check for physical damage. These sensors can be overly sensitive and will trigger well below the damage level of a television so there are many false alarms with the sensors. For example a worker may have bumped the sensor causing it to turn red but no impact was received by the actual screen."

Un tanto más largo, pero más explicativo, me parece "sensor de manipulación inadecuada"
