This gets attached to the assets you want to track. You can use adhesive, Velcro (R), zip tie or a screw. Its built tough for enterprise applications, with a multi-year battery life.
Drop this tiny-yet-powerful reader in anywhere you want continuous monitoring, without depending on your team's smartphones to be around. Setup is as easy as connecting power and network, and you'll need only a few for even the biggest areas.
With Visybl's apps your iPhone and Android turn into powerful asset monitoring tools. Use your existing phone to capture inventory in your warehouse, office, or even en route in vehicles.
Visybl CloudView shows where all your business assets are, recent activity, asset temperature and much more -- all from your favorite browser. You can also add other team members, setup alerts, generate reports, and configure CloudNodes.
You need phones that support Bluetooth Low Energy (not the same as Bluetooth). iPhone 5 and later, as well as most Android KitKat (or later) devices support BLE. Newer models such as iPhone 6 and Nexus 6 perform better.
Indoors, you can typically read AssetBeacons from 100-200 feet away, using either a smartphone, or a CloudNode. Outdoors, with fewer obstructions, you can get twice that.
You can attach them to almost anything you want tracked: laptops, vehicles, pallets, people, containers. You can even attach them to shelves and walls to serve as location markers, to give your apps location context.
Our solution is designed in every way for non-technical users. If you can physically attach AssetBeacons, plug in a CloudNode, download an app, and login, you are a Visybl user!
Absolutely. Visybl solution is so simple to install and use, its perfect for small deployments.
First, sign up for our free beacons giveaway. Next, email us with some details (firstname.lastname@example.org). We like nothing better than seeing our products being tried out worldwide.
We will be releasing a sealed version soon. While read range will be diminished, they can be read even fully submerged.
AssetBeacons don't have a GPS. If they are read by a smartphone, we use the phone's GPS for location. When they are read by CloudNodes, its manually configured location ("Warehouse 21, Door 42") is used.
Within 1 degree C.
AssetBeacon batteries last for years. Months before the battery is about to run out, our cloud--which is always watching them--will let you know. Our subscription service includes AssetBeacon replacements, shipped straight to you.
AssetBeacon information can be sent to the cloud using your smartphone's 3G connection. If there is no Internet at all, our smartphone app and the CloudNodes can store and forward.
Not necessarily (though we recommend it). If you want to monitor your assets even when there is no phone around--or maybe your employees have private phones they don't want to use for work--thats when you need a CloudNode. You get fix-and-forget reliability with CloudNodes.
Yes, CloudNodes do work with iBeacons (or other BLE devices) as well.
Yes, there are. Email us for more details.
Yes, using our SDKs you can integrate AssetBeacons into existing mobile app.
So are we! AssetBeacons store no data about the asset (or person) they are attached to. They broadcast a simple number, which is associated with the asset only in the cloud database, which you have to login to. Our cloud service is hosted on Google's App Engine and Amazon Web Services.
