We are Launching a New Solution, RECO Tracking!

Based on the Real Time Scanning function of RECO Manager Plus*, we have developed a new solution, RECO Tracking. We will let you know what this exciting new solution is in this post.

* Check out the link for detailed explanations on the functions of RECO Manager Plus!

What is RECO Tracking?

RECO Tracking is a BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) based asset/people tracking solution. You can get real time data on the moving beacons in certain regions.

Asset/People Tracking
Asset & People Tracking Solution Overview

Although you can get informed whether a beacon has entered or exited certain area, it is not possible to pin-point the location or track down the movement of the beacons within each area.

As seen in the figures above, you can track down the movements by the regions but not within one region.

 

What is required for RECO Tracking service?

For RECO Tracking, you need RECO Manager Plus for the Real Time Scanning functionality, along with any other BLE transmitting device. This BLE device can be any beacon or device that sends out BLE signals, and need not be the RECO Beacon.

 

What detailed functions does RECO Tracking provide?

Here are some of the features of RECO Tracking.

  • Filtering: Get informed only of certain beacons by filtering function.
  • Region Setting: Set up and visualize the regions to be monitored.
  • Real Time In/Out Monitoring: Sends In/Out data of each beacon to a designated server.

Moreover, with the key products such as RECO Beacon, RECO Manager Plus, SoundTAG, and RECO Tracking, we are always looking for exciting business opportunities. Feel free to contact us at biz@perples.com if you have anything exciting to work on together.

The ‘RECO Manager Plus’ is coming soon!

RECO Manager will be upgraded to ‘RECO Manager Plus’ from this upcoming May.

RECO Manager’s current key functions — remote management of RECO Beacons — will stay the same.

The exciting parts about the updates on RECO Manager Plus is ‘real-time Bluetooth scanning’ that reports the scan results periodically.
The following are the additional features of RECO Manager Plus.

1. Scanning nearby BLE beacons

RECO Manaer Plus will be able to scan all the nearby BLE Beacons.

The scannable beacons include BLE beacons from any manufacturers, regardless of iBeacon/Eddystone formats.  But configuring will only be viable with RECO Beacons.

2. Report function
RECO Manager Plus sends reports on appear/disappear scan results of nearby beacons once in every 5 seconds in JSON format.
Appear: Shows newly-scanned beacons during the last 5-second scan period
Disappear: shows disappeared beacons; meaning that once scanned, but unscanned while scanning
All: shows all scanned beacons

3. Filtering function
Shows filtered beacons by beacon settings variables (by UUID, UID, etc.)

Expected in May 2016, RECO Manager Plus will bring beacon management to a next level. Stay tuned for updates!
