Favendos indoor positioning system enables corporate customers to work completely by themselves with the bluetooth sensor infrastructure which we have set for them. Thats why we made the beacon management part as user friendly as possible. We are convinced that after a short briefing almost anyone can work with the system.
The complete hardware of the bluetooth sensor infrastructure can be intuitively and easily operated with the Commander’s webbased frontend. The interface also provides any needed information about function and status level of every beacon resulting in easy and efficient maintenance of the infrastructure.
Beacon Management core functions
- Setting up hardware / hardware check-up
- Status level / batteriy level monitoring
- Setting up zone alterings
- Assigning data sets to assets

Geofencing and zone alerting
These functions mean, that one can define special zones in which certain actions should be triggered or in which certain assets should be tracked.
Geofencing is a a neologism from geographic and fence. By geofencing for example an immobilizer device can be activated if a car or a construction vehicle leaves a defined zone. The zone can for example be a construction site, a festival area or a defined zone within a building.
Zone alerting means that actions like push notifications are supposed to be triggered not at a certain point but when entering, leaving or staying in defined zones for example at the entrance area of an exhibition. For example, if a visitor, who has the corresponding app installed, enters the area and with that the defined radio signal radius, a push notification is triggered on his smart phone. This is independent from the point where he goes through the imaginary fence. These functions enable various possibilities:
- welcome / good bye messages
- theft protection
- people / vistor monitoring
- automated security calls
Assigning data or datasets to assets
In the case of asset tracking or person tracking, the data sets are assigned to the individual wearable or bluetooth asset tags so that your staff knows exactly which individual or which asset is covered by which tag. The system provides information on the status of each individual tag and when and where a particular tag was last active within the bluetooth infrastructure.
Easy to use Beacon Management keeps the Infrastructure flexible
A stable and functional bluetooth beacon infrastructure is an absolute basic requirement for Favendo RTLS. It provides the basis for all indoor real time location solutions, regardless of the positioning method (RSSI or AoA). Nevertheless, a sensor infrastructure by Favendo is not a static structure, but can grow with the requirements of the system. Individual beacons or groups of beacons can be added to or removed from the system any time.
Favendo’s beacon management solutions also ensure that the infrastructure can be easily maintained and flexibly modified. This is all the more important, the greater the probability that the room layout of the overall interior covered by the beacon infrastructure will change, as is often the case in exhibition halls or warehouses, for example.
Even though it’s easy, you don’t have to do manage your beacons yourself
The fact that we have developed our Beacon Management System to be as user-friendly as possible does not mean that our customers have to use it.
Of course, we can also take care of the maintenance of the system if required. We provide advice and support for necessary adjustments to the beacon infrastructure for beacon management. Our specialized teams not only have the system competence, but also the technical skills to physically maintain the infrastructure. Especially in the case of high ceilings or special installation requirements, it is still advisable to call on our trained personnel.
