Bluetooth Trackers: BLE Beacon Asset Tags
Bluetooth asset tags are bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacons that advertise an asset identification number at the regular time intervals.
The advertised asset ID(s) are picked up by the smartphone and a tool tracking mobile application.
Based on the user selection, either all assets within approximately 10 m radius are added to the asset transaction, or a mobile
application finds a nearest asset and provides information on this asset to the user.
Physically a Bluetooth asset tracker (a BLE beacon) is a small lightweight plastic tag. It can be round, square, or rectangular,
an inch or two in width and length, and around half an inch or less thick. BLE beacon tag is powered by the battery, and the tags are very energy efficient.
A small coin size battery may last anywhere between 6 months to up to 4 years. Some Bluetooth tags have replaceable batteries.
Bluetooth beacon tags are suitable for the small equipment and tools. You can attach BLE tags to the assets with a zip tie or screws, or stick a Bluetooth tag on the
tool if it has an adhesive layer on one side.
Industrial grade BLE tags are rugged and waterproof and are suitable to use outdoors on the construction tools and equipment.
