Motive Beacon helps track assets

Motive has launched Beacon, a small Bluetooth-based tracking device that allows customers to track just about anything from small tools and equipment to pallets in a warehouse. 

The device connects to the Motive Beacon Gateway to enable meter-level indoor positioning. It also connects to the Motive Mesh Network to allow customers to track their equipment on the move indoors and outdoors. 

“The Motive Beacon Gateway is an indoor gateway designed specifically for asset positioning within a facility such as a warehouse, manufacturing plant, or construction site, where traditional GPS tracking is unreliable,” the company said in a news release.

“By connecting Motive Beacons to the Motive Beacon Gateway, Motive creates a wireless technological net that enables workers to leverage the Motive Fleet App to lead them precisely to the asset they need.”

Once the equipment is in transit outside of a facility, the Motive Mesh Network leverages Motive’s 2 million+ active Motive Vehicle Gateways, Asset Gateways, and Motive App users to locate these assets, the company claims.
