HID Global

HID Global, a provider of trusted identity solutions, announced its extended portfolio of innovative Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with its latest offerings that help organisations take the leap to a new level of asset and equipment management.

HID Location Services for Item Management precisely monitors the location and movement of assets and equipment across multiple locations or in a specific area, and the new HID Condition Monitoring Services provides real-time analysis of equipment performance and health. The offerings provide a simple solution for streamlining the daily operations in hospitals, manufacturing facilities, and a wide range of industrial organisations requiring instant, actionable data to optimise workflow, processes, and equipment efficiency.

Preventing equipment failure

“Every day, organisations seek to address pressing concerns around the misuse, tampering, and theft of assets, as well as unforeseen equipment downtime. HID’s latest solutions make it possible to quickly locate items, provide valuable equipment data to optimise equipment efficiency, and react quickly to critical events or instantly know when equipment fails,” said Mark Robinton, Director of Strategic Innovation with HID Global.

“Our new condition monitoring services enable operations teams to move from a reactive or prescriptive stance to a more knowledge-based, predictive model that makes it possible to receive advanced warning of issues with equipment and proactively plan for scheduled maintenance based on algorithms and data analytics.”

Predictive and actionable analysis

HID Conditioning Monitoring Services enable organisations to create predictive and actionable analysis for optimal performance of vending machines, conveyor belts, heating and cooling systems, medical equipment, and other equipment. In addition, the services help determine the health and predict failure of motors, generators and other motorised machinery, while also leveraging its powerful policy engine to quickly identify potential issues and provide alerts so organisations can take action to reduce downtime.

The new HID Location Services for Item Management capabilities dramatically enhance item and asset management

The new HID Location Services for Item Management capabilities dramatically enhance item and asset management by quickly locating a broad range of items, such as ladders, carts, and emergency hospital equipment. In scenarios where an item’s location impacts workforce safety, facility managers can use geo-fences to easily deploy alerts by simply establishing policies that monitor incoming vehicles, hazardous materials, or dangerous equipment in multiple locations.

Seamless deployment and lower deployment cost

Enabled by Bluvision, an HID Global company, the offerings are based on a common platform for seamless deployment and lower deployment cost, plus they leverage Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for precise, real-time location services. Both include an HID cloud service, Bluetooth beacons in multiple form factors, and BluFi gateways; deployment simply entails plugging in AC-powered BLE/WiFi gateways and attaching beacons to items and equipment.

The solutions’ cloud-based model and minimal hardware requirements also eliminate expensive infrastructure setup of antennas, servers, and wired infrastructure to further reduce the total cost of ownership.
