Asset Tracking with Bluetooth

ASSET TRACKING WITH BLUETOOTH®


Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a variant of the Bluetooth technology used in many wireless consumer electronics designed for short-range communication, ideal for managing assets of all shapes, sizes, and values.

Several of our award-winning GPS tracking devices and IoT sensors also serve as Bluetooth Gateways, enabling local communication with other tagged assets and mobile devices for affordable and efficient asset management and sensor monitoring applications.


 

how it works

  • Asset tracking with BLE involves a Bluetooth Gateway and Bluetooth Tag
  • ​Our Gateway devices feature concurrent GPS and Bluetooth 5.0 to provide GPS location and detection of nearby Bluetooth signals, and are commonly mounted or wired into high-value assets, or concealed onsite
  • Our industrial Bluetooth Tags, or third-party tags are then placed on lower-valued assets, like pallets, stocks and tools
  • The gateway device reports a collection of information about the tag and sends to Telematics Guru or third-party tracking platforms
 
Bluetooth Gateways and Tagged Assets

ENDLESS APPLICATIONS

  • BLE is an affordable solution for tracking both high and low-value assets
  • Bluetooth Tags are perfect for tracking tools, smaller equipment, or any mid-sized non-powered asset where a larger (and expensive) device does not make commercial sense
  • Track inventory as you sell, manufacture and restock across multiple warehouse locations
  • Cold Chain Management / Other Sensor Monitoring
  • Bin Location Tracking
  • Smart Farming / Agtech Applications
 

ONE PLATFORM,
ALL OF YOUR ASSETS

Device configuration and asset management is made simple with our OTA Device Management Server and Telematics Guru Tracking Software.

Remotely monitor all of your gateways and tags in one place.
 
Already have tracking software or an ERP? We also integrate with existing platforms.

ASSET TRACKING & SENSOR MONITORING WITH RESTOTRACKER

When Steven Kramer became aware of how antiquated water restoration operations had become in the age of IoT and connected devices, he decided to develop a solution using the Remora2 and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology - Restoracker.

The Restrotracker solution is two-fold: providing water restoration companies with traditional equipment, vehicle and employee tracking while also eliminating second and third-day sensor reading visits through the application of BLE technology.
