Seamless Experience

HID Global Personal and Sensor Beacons are available as a single credential and are used as location services and access controls—delivering a unified, trusted identity credential to streamline usage. The beacon’s lifecycle is one of the longest lasting in the industry, its battery life ranging from 3-10 years.

Easy To Deploy

The HID Global Cloud Location Services platform easily integrates into existing building management systems using REST APIs for customisable data streams, dashboards, and reports. The intuitive platform enables beacon management—delivering alerts and message notification to adhere to security policies and simplifying events, workflows, and analytics.

Superior Accuracy

BluFi Gateways are used to communicate the beacon location via BLE and Wi-Fi directly to the HID Cloud Location service. This enables organisations to push firmware updates to the ecosystem, while remotely monitoring beacons for performance, status, and battery life. Despite these vast capabilities, the system requires minimal infrastructure to implement.
