Versus Technology Offers RTLS for BLE Wayfinding

Versus Technology has announced that health-care facilities seeking to improve the patient experience through wayfinding initiatives can now leverage its real-time locating system (RTLS), providing power and simplifying maintenance for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) networks.

Wayfinding apps for smartphones can ease patient anxiety as they navigate large health-care campuses, providing turn-by-turn directions, the company explains, yet installing BLE beacons for wayfinding typically creates a standalone network that requires active supervision and maintenance. Changing beacon batteries and ensuring that none go missing due to theft are crucial to providing a seamless wayfinding experience for patients.

The Versus Sensor Plus is designed to address these issues for health-care facilities that use the Versus RTLS. With Sensor Plus, Versus customers can expand their RTLS investment to provide a plug-and-play power source for BLE beacons, eliminate the need to change beacon batteries, hide beacons from sight and possible theft, and improve beacon performance through optimal placement in hallway ceilings.
