• Employee or Contractor Entry and Exit of a location
Track employees or contractors when they enter or leave a site using beacons. You can use card beacons or track using a mobile app or watch app.
• On-Site positioning
There are two common ways to use beacons. First, the more common method is Real Time Location Systems – RTLS and is fixed readers and moving beacon tags. For Bluetooth, this is accomplished with tools like kontakt.io Location Engine and Gateway. The Gateway acts as the reader, collecting beacon data and sending it to the Location Engine for analysis. Common use cases include real-time employee monitoring and asset tracking.
The second method, which is commonly associated with beacons, involves fixed beacons and moving readers. Here, the beacons are attached to assets or points-of-interest and then paired with a mobile app. These methods are great for sending specialized messages to app users at the right time. For employees, this could be information about their accreditation or notification they in an unauthorised area. For supervisors this could be where an employee is on a site or updated scheduling information.
