More Ways to Supercharge Your IoT Projects

We worked closely with specialist location experts Quuppa to add three highly accurate asset or personnel locating trackers to the range — supplementing the Bluetooth® Low Energy, LoRaWAN and GPS capabilities launched the year prior.

New IoT Devices Are Cloud-Capable and Have a Wide Range of Applications

The personnel version of these new devices is called the Sense Shield and uses the Quuppa platform for tracking the movements of people around a large workplace, facility or sports stadium. As well as monitoring the movements and interactions of individuals, it is also equipped with a social distancing alarm.

The eight devices in the Sense range are now supported by OmniSphere, a new cloud-based middleware platform that seamlessly receives the data transmitted and sends it to existing corporate applications.  The platform also allows quick validation of new technology protocols or “proof of concept” by presenting data from Sense devices back to you via a series of user-friendly dashboards.

Sense Asset (BLE) IoT device

The Sense Bluetooth Low Energy Asset IoT device includes robust and durable Bluetooth Low Energy beacons.
Sense Asset (Quuppa) IoT device

The Sense Asset (Quuppa) device is a rugged asset tracker device delivering highly accurate Real Time Location System (RTLS) data.

The Sense IoT devices are powerful yet hugely energy efficient, providing long life. As with all Omni-ID products, the growing range comes with high levels of innovation and production quality built in.

All Sense devices are also super easy to configure using the new Sense Config mobile app where all the sensor settings and beacon rates can be adjusted and calibrated.

The introduction of our BLE and LoRaWAN devices was a game changer, and I’ve been delighted with how well our new Sense range has been received by customers and partners. We are seeing some really exciting applications within healthcare and cold chain condition monitoring, and now we’re particularly proud that the addition of Quuppa compatibility has enabled the rapid development of devices that can be applied in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The Sense Shield has potential applications in healthcare settings, cruise ships, sports venues and wherever an organization needs to help people maintain social distancing. Quuppa’s location accuracy is second to none, so our latest Sense products offer the same high performance in terms of communication distance, ruggedness, battery life and accuracy. — Tony Kington, Omni-ID’s former CEO

These new additions are expected to soon be followed by more forward-looking communication devices from HID/Omni-ID which offer robust, reliable and effective linkage to the Internet of Things.

This is the future of tracking, monitoring, sensing and data gathering.
