Bluvision, a part of HID Global, announces Real-Time Location System [RTLS]-EZ - the only location solution that can be deployed within a matter of hours in the industry today. The solution consists of Bluvision’s BEEKs beacons or BEEKs beacon cards, their plug-in Bluetooth to WiFi gateways - BluFis, and their cloud solution – Bluzone. Bluvision’s RTLS-EZ continues to provide industry-leading accuracy of 2 meters (one meter with calibration) and comes with the lowest cost of ownership.
The biggest barriers to the adoption of RTLS solutions have been the massive infrastructure requirements, expensive hardware and installation, and long installation time. Bluvision’s RTLS-EZ addresses all of these customer pain points. The minimal hardware requirement and the fact that all of the location intelligence resides in the cloud (over 20 location algorithms including RSSI, AoA, DToA, etc.,) makes RTLS-EZ more of a software-based solution.
RTLS-EZ provides both real time tracking and path history with dwell times and heat maps. It also provides the ability to create dynamic geofences, and can be configured to track items, people or equipment. The tracking capabilities include both latitude/longitude location (You are ‘here’) and zone-based (you are ‘near’ here.) But the clear competitive advantage that RTLS-EZ delivers is the fact that the location solution can set up within a matter of hours in 4 easy steps:
STEP 1: Conduct Site Survey to understand where the gateways (BluFis) need to be plugged-in and determining WiFi access points
STEP 2: Plug-in BluFis based on site survey
STEP 3: Set the location of each individual BluFi on the cloud, by dragging and dropping the BluFi to the corresponding position on the map in the UI
STEP 4: Tag assets to be tracked and start tracking
