Among the advantages of using Bluetooth® is the wide range of devices that are supported. In addition to using tablets and smartphones to act as gateways to transmit beacon data, you can install BLE/Wi-Fi gateways in fixed locations where Wi-Fi is available. Users can install one or more of these simple and cost-effective gateway devices to continually keep track of when tagged assets enter, leave or are present in a that location. Our gateway range is approximately 50 meters/160 feet.
Some examples of the use cases for BLE/Wi-Fi gateways include warehouses, loading docks, construction trailers, gatehouses, equipment lock-ups and work sites.
