The Guppy is a compact, rugged BLE tag perfect for low-cost monitoring of assets. The Guppy BLE integrates with other Digital Matter devices that support BLE, or they can be used with your own BLE mobile applications.
We have added BLE to the Remora2
, and upcoming G120 and Eagle. These devices can serve as BLE 'gateways', and pass Guppy BLE data to the server.
The Guppy will transmit a beacon signal every few seconds, broadcasting:
- Device Serial Number
- Digital Matter Manufactuer Code
- Battery Voltage
- Transmit Power (to be used with RSSI for range estimates)
The Remora2, G120 or Eagle can receive these beacons when in range of a Guppy BLE.
Given these are GPS devices, and their location is known, the location of each Guppy can be approximated.
The Guppy BLE is low cost, compact, runs off just 2 x AAA batteries for up to 5 years
, and won't require a SIM or data plan
. Meaning it can be readily attached to almost anything to provide low cost asset location. It is particularly useful for low value or smaller assets where it may not make commercial sense to attach a device such as the Yabby GPS
Just some of the potential use casesAutomatic Inventory Management -
If a Guppy BLE is attached to each item of stock, the number of tags that report to a gateway device can be used to count the number at a location. Monitoring equipment across multiple sites -
With a gateway located at each site, the gateway which a Guppy is reporting to will indicate which site the tagged asset is located Hire Equipment -
Monitoring equipment entering/leaving the yard based upon whether it is in range of a gateway or not. Bin Location Tracking -
Knowing where the bins were dropped of and by which truck. The truck will contain a gateway device, and when a Guppy attached to the bin is 'lost' (out of range of the gateway) - the bin has been dropped off at this location. Trailer Tracking
- with automatic scanning of which pallets are on the trailer. A gateway device would be attached to the trailer and a Guppy BLE on each pallet.
