Use Cases

A multipurpose Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 4.2+ device, the A1 tag can be worn as a wristwatch, on a key tag/pendant, or it can be attached to an asset. The tag has a single tactile push button on the center. The tag has optional temperature and humidity sensors or a three-axis accelerometer. The A1 tag is programmable and upgradable over the air.

The A1 tag uses the BLE network to send data to the controlling server. In addition to beaconing, the tag also scans for signals for cases where people or assets can be associated to each other. Typical applications include social distancing and asset monitoring so that assets/objects can stay within specific parameters of each other. When no existing infrastructure is available, AiRISTA provides low-cost, Wi-Fi/BLE gateways to transfer data to the controlling server.
