Cloud enabled, smart, and rapid implementation
BluFi™ are Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) to Wifi gateways that relay signals between BEEKs Beacons and the cloud of HID Global’s end-to-end IoT Services ecosystem. In combination with the corresponding Bluzone™ cloud services, BluFi enable BEEKs™ beacons to be centrally managed through the cloud, to transfer new messages, firmware updates, sensor data and battery status checks remotely. Their unique design allows BluFi devices and BEEKs beacons to broadcast reliably even in densely populated WiFi environments.
BluFi technology highlights are:
Cloud Enabled – Bi-directional BLE to WiFi gateway for remote management
Smart – Accurately measures distance to BLE Beacons for RTLS
Rapid Implementation – Simply install at any conventional power plug
Bluetooth Smart 4.1 and WiFi compliant
iBeacon (Apple), Eddystone (Google) and sBeacon (HID) supported simultaneously
Models for DC or USB power outlet
Central management possible
HID Global Location Services is an efficient real-time asset location (RTLS) platform leveraging BEEKs beacons to effectively pin down the locations of assets and people inside a care facility or independent living village.
The calculation of the BEEKs location is based on received signal strength and other factors measured by BluFi devices. BluFi DC are powered with a rechargeable battery, and are designed to be installed with an optional mounting kit on walls or in the ceiling. DC power connection can be done via USB or direct wires.
