M2 Asset Traking Beacon
Bluetooth Low Energy(BLE) is a wireless area network that allows people within its range to see its location easily, it can also be employed in the tracking of valuable assets.
The M2 BLE asset tracking beacon utilizes the Bluetooth low energy asset tracking technology. It is can be employed indoors or outdoors to monitor inventory or other important use cases vital to your organization. It is portable and easy to install. You do not need specialized tools to set things up and running. It can be hung, screwed, or attached to a surface with a sticker.
The M2 asset management beacon gives you a range of up to 160 meters (in open spaces without obstacles). You can easily install the BEACONX PRO APP for your iOS or Android devices to connect with the device with ease.
How asset beacon works
Bluetooth beacons are similar to Wi-Fi networks – they transmit radio waves within a set range (up to 70 meters). The device repeatedly broadcasts a radio signal, which can be seen by other devices within its range.
The radio signals the beacon transmits are composed of numbers and letters which are transmitted at regular intervals (approximately 1/10th of a second). When a Bluetooth-enabled device, like a smartphone, is in the range of the transmitting device, it can see the beacon.
This is similar to lighthouses that permanently emit visible light which serves as navigational guides for sailors.
