Achieve Real-Time
Workplace Awareness

If you are a building owner, facility manager, HR leader, or security professional, you face an increasing number of responsibilities, from determining real estate needs to defining and monitoring restricted areas and managing pandemic readiness measures. To address the challenges of today’s dynamic workplace, it’s imperative to have access to real-time information to optimize safety, deliver on compliance, and reduce facility costs—while creating a safer employee and visitor experience.
Bluzone Location Services combines a hardware and software solution that delivers actionable occupancy data that scales and expands based on the need of the facility. Integrations with Progeny access control systems allow you to know when employees and visitors enter or exit the building; easily understand current occupancy of the building on a floor or room; set up automated notifications for location events; and locate building occupants in the event of an emergency.

Bluvision Components

Dark Crystal Switch Plate Reader


BluFi™ are Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) to Wifi gateways that relay signals between BEEKs Beacons and the cloud of HID Global’s end-to-end IoT ecosystem. In combination with the corresponding Bluzone™ cloud services, BluFi enable BEEKs™ beacons to be centrally managed through the cloud, to transfer new messages, firmware updates, sensor data and battery status checks remotely. Altogether, their unique design allows BluFi devices and BEEKs beacons to broadcast reliably even in densely populated WiFi environments. Remote monitoring of beacons – status, battery life & firmware updates. Plug-and-play capabilities as a result fast implementations. Location accuracy measured in meters.

Bluetooth Beacon

Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) beacons are among the most advanced beacon badges in the industry. Worn as badges they can provide valuable insights on workplace utilization, for instance helping to ensure everyone is safely out of a building in emergency situations.

Bluzone™ is a cloud based Software as a Service (SaaS) to centrally manage BLE beacons via Blufi™  BLE to WiFi gateways. Bluzone’s  basic functionality is hardware fleet  management with optional add-ons  for Workplace Optimization, Item Management (RTLS).

The Bluzone web-based console provides a powerful user interface to query and configure every aspect of
a fleet of beacons and BluFis, including remote firmware updates.
At a glance, the Bluzone dashboard shows hardware deployed, in range and in or out of compliance according to the configured policies. Over a dozen different policy types can be configured for all or a group of beacons to alert on situations. For example: Presence, battery, temperature, motion, location, geofence, proximity, enter/exit, tampering etc. Policy violations can be logged and/or sent via alert per e-mail.
Bluzone’s location engine positions beacons efficiently through geo-coordinates on mapping engines from Google, Bing or Baidu. Floor plans of buildings are easily imported as JPG or PNG graphics. Automatically generated heat maps or historical paths help to optimize building utilization or work processes.
