IPS is a software application installed on an on-premise server that locates and tracks Bluetooth® devices in discoverable mode. IPS automatically locates and tracks employees and assets via Bluetooth® beacons that are strategically placed in the desired coverage zones.
Beacons have a maximum range of 300 feet and can be adjusted to cover the desired area. The number of beacons installed to service the desired coverage zones defines the granularity of the location data. The more beacons are installed, the more the information will be precise. The beacons can be hidden behind walls or ceiling panels, discrete or visible as need be. They have either internal or external antennas, are powered either by a power supply or PoE (power over Ethernet), and communicate with the IPS server through the Local Area Network (LAN).
The location information is displayed on a desktop application accessible over the LAN, with which administrators, supervisors and dispatchers have visual real-time data on employee and asset location.
IPS is compatible with any Bluetooth device that can set to permanent discoverable mode.
* Radios must have integrated Bluetooth or be equipped with a Bluetooth® accessory.
