Real-time Bluetooth Asset Tracking solution.

Introducing Bluetooth® alternative to active and passive RFID.

The Smartx Hub® Beacon Tags tracking solution allows you to maintain up to the minute inventory control of all tagged equipment on your work sites and storage facilities. Simply leverage your existing employee's smart phones, tablets or gateway devices with low energy Bluetooth to continuously transmit data from any piece of equipment outfitted with a Smartx Beacon. With a range of up to 250 meters, battery life 2-8 years, and a weather proof tag, the site foreman can take inventory automatically without intervention. For some zones, you may choose to install a permanent gateway for inventory management 24/7.

 

 

Increase asset and space utilization by tracking of occupancy and asset usage.

The functionality of beacon tags is relatively simple. Beacons are small Bluetooth devices that broadcast a near-constant radio signal to smart devices in the area. The Smartx Application communicates to Beacon Tags through Low Energy Bluetooth® connection on Bluetooth® enabled devices such as smartphones, tablets and BLE/Wi-Fi Gateways. This signal indicates the Bluetooth users or device proximity to that beacon and, subsequently, a specific location. Additional beacons can be installed to accurately identify an individual’s position down to meter level. This technology can be easily integrated into other systems and everyday devices due to an existing widespread adaptation of the Bluetooth standard.

 

 

ASSET CONDITIONS MONITORING

By collecting sensor telemetry data and using our advanced Condition Monitoring algorithms, are able to filter out non-vital data to accurately portray trend-line information, predict failure and provide alerts so that remedial actions can be scheduled before an equipment is about to stop functioning, thereby reducing downtime and avoiding lost capacity. Maintenance and replacements can be scheduled based on trendline and predictive analysis. The key to effective monitoring is not just collecting relevant data in real-time, but allowing you to act on this data immediately.

WE’RE BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL – AND THIS IS WHERE WE TALK ABOUT IT.

Event & Alert Manager

The Smartx Hub® events and notification module enables you to automatically and immediately significant context-based events that require attention. Trigger configurable event types – entrance / exit, overflow shortage, dwell / absence, temperature, humidity, motion, par level, tag battery level, and more • Web-based event creation tool requires no coding

RTLS & business intelligence

The most controversial but also the most common use case today of Smart tags is using the data collected for business intelligence. With an unified location solution, like SmartxHub, is possible to answer questions like “how many people walk by a given location each day”, ”what are the busiest hours throughout the day/week”, “how long is the average person spending inside the area/location” and “where in a site/location personnel spend most time”.

Condition Monitoring (Sensor and Telemetry)

The Smartx Hub® is a powerful tool that will help you in Improved regulatory compliance with temperature and humidity data collection requirements. Improves the quality process through constant monitoring of safe temperature, humidity and other sensors data ranges and analysis of logged data to identify trends.

Smarter decision making

Smartx RTLS can be used for everything from choosing locations and planning site layouts, to understanding the personnel movements and using those insights to come up with new safety or business strategies. Smartx data platform that collects data from every device, analyzes it in real-time and transforms your information into insights.

Asset Tracking: Health

Smartx solution is able to monitor the health of assets like generators, motors and motorized equipment such as conveyors and lifts by monitoring telemetry data such as vibration and temperature and understanding the trendline on every piece of equipment. This critical information can provide alerts and notify appropriate personnel when a failure is predicted. Further, analytics can be used to study trend lines to predict failures.
