Proximity Technologies Launches Suite of Bluetooth Beacon Products

Proximity Technologies, a division of cyber-security firm Secure Channels Inc., has announced PROXiMITTER, a suite of four Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon products. These products are designed to allow real-time data collection of high-value assets, including devices and company personnel.

The PROXiMITTERX1 is a single beacon that transmits a wireless BLE signal that can be used to trigger events and engage mobile clients for all smartphone operating systems, and supports business optimization applications, such as logistics, workforce management and Internet of Things sensors. The PROXiMITTER2-U is a dual transmitter beacon that can communicate with both Wi-Fi- and BLE-enabled devices. A PROXiMITTER2-U beacon transmits a Wi-Fi and BLE signal simultaneously that can trigger events and engage mobile clients regardless of smartphone operating systems. The PROXiHub is a BLE-to-Wi-Fi gateway that combines peer-to-peer PROXiMITTER networking with network gateway features. It is designed to extend the PROXiMITTER family, the company reports, by offering presence and engagement services with and without smartphone applications. And the PROXiMITTER-L5 is an offline analytics and engagement beacon with TCP/IP connectivity via Wi-Fi or Ethernet. It supports Apple's iBeacon profile and Wi-Fi analytics, and provides remote monitoring and maintenance via Internet connectivity.

According to Proximity Technologies, PROXiMITTER devices can show the exact location of each employee, device and machine, thereby providing customers with a more comprehensive overview of every aspect of a company's operations. The devices can also be utilized to gather data for use in more effective promotions and more efficient strategic planning. The PROXiMITTER line was designed to integrate with any beacon platform management tool or any existing data-analysis systems, Proximity Technologies explains.

The devices are available in a range of different packaging configurations, as well as multiple power options. Proximity Technologies has developed a proprietary mobile application to serve as an interface for the entire line of PROXiMITTER devices. The software is designed for integration with a range of cloud-based content-management systems.

Proximity Technologies' solutions are designed to be deployed globally and provide a range of capabilities, including device and data security, workplace and asset management, mobile customer engagement, payment solutions, real-time tracking and location services. The company also provides custom firmware and solutions for businesses and works with clients to create IoT services.
