HID Global, global provider of trusted identity solutions, announced that it has won the 2018 RFID Journal Live! Best New Product award for its new Mini Tamper-Evident Beacon, the industry’s first Bluetooth beacon to provide anti-theft protection for IoT-based location services and conditioning monitoring applications. 

The latest addition to our IoT services for asset management addresses the escalating need to protect sensitive assets and equipment in more connected and intelligent environments,” said Marc Bielmann, Vice President and Managing Director for Identification Technologies at HID Global. “This accolade validates HID’s evolution in our identification and sensing technologies portfolio, which is focused on driving more secure, intuitive and efficient operations.

HID Mini Tamper-Evident Beacon HID’s Mini Tamper-Evident Beacon can be fully integrated into HID Location Services and HID Condition Monitoring 

Enabled by Bluvision, HID’s Mini Tamper-Evident Beacon can be fully integrated into HID Location Services (for item management) and HID Condition Monitoring (for managing the operational performance and health of equipment). Once integrated, real-time alerts and notifications can be sent when a beacon has been damaged or removed from an asset.

John Sailer, Chief Operating Officer of Bluvision added, “The beacon packs a cost-effective solution into a small form factor to reduce risks and increase security using innovative conductive technology that enables the revolutionary deployment of tamper-evident IoT ecosystems. The combination of its size and security capabilities is what makes the beacon highly desirable to customers.

Inventory and asset tracking

HID’s Mini Tamper-Evident Beacon is ideal for managing critical, proprietary and high value assets across three primary use cases:

  • HID Location Services to track assets, inventory and equipment with 1-2-meter accuracy using real-time location services.
  • HID Location Services to monitor gateways or portals, and to know when assets are near specified areas using proximity-based location services.
  • HID Condition Monitoring to track the temperature, motion and vibration of vending machines, HVAC systems, equipment and motorised machinery to help determine the health and performance for more data-driven maintenance.

The new Bluetooth beacon was selected by a panel of independent judges who recognised the most groundbreaking solutions that deliver business value, reduce cost and improve efficiencies.
