In combination with Barcoding's mobile AAT App, compatible with iOS and Android, the BLE beacons allow users to continuously track information about an asset’s presence, temperature and movement. Once placed on tracked assets, the beacons communicate data every two seconds to smartphones more than 150 feet away, even when inside a vehicle or container. From the mobile application, users can change an asset’s state, such as from “en route” to “on site.” The beacon’s LED indicates the appropriate status to assist in asset identification. Data transmitted from the beacon includes asset ID, signal strength, battery life, location, LED, and maximum, minimum and current temperature. Users can view information from the AAT app’s dashboard, and set up e-mail alerts based on threshold exceptions. Beacons are powered by a button cell with battery life of up to five years, Barcoding said.
