M2 Asset Beacon

M2 Asset Beacon is mainly used for Assets Tracking, Indoor
Navigation, Wayfinding, Proximity Marketing, etc. With its multiple
installation methods and robust enclosure, it can be deployed in
factory, warehouse, building and other indoor or outdoor places.

• Nordic nRF52811 SoC (Hardware is compatible with Bluetooth 5.1 )
• Integrated 3-axis accelerometer and magnetic (Hall-effect sensor) switch sensors
• Accelerometer sensor for motion detection can identify whether the Beacon is moving
• Smartphone app (iOS & Android, and provide SDK) easily configures all parameters

Rough indoor and outdoor environments use case of M2 Asset Beacon

Higher IP67 waterproof rating design and wide operating temperature range enable M2 Asset Beacon to resistant to extreme environments, like rain and snow conditions. Besides,the up to 4 years lifetime and 160 meters advertising range can reduce the frequency of replacing and checking times in some remote area.

How to install M2 asset beacon

Magnetic switch makes safely control for M2 Asset Beacon

Multiple installation options of M2 like hanging with lanyard, screws or double-sided sticker can be selected by user. After deployment,M2 can be easily powered on by a magnet via integrated omni polar Hall-effect sensor and it can avoid accidental controll by an external button.

Motion detection can help M2 Assect Beacon save battery power

An Integrated 3-axis accelerometer sensor can Identify your asset is moving or not. M2 can go to sleep mode and stop advertising when your asset is not moving, it is a better method to save the energy of M2. In addition, the M2 Beacon can be used for theft prevention, vibration detection in forklifts, large-scale asset tracking based on the data sampling of a 3-axis accelerometer sensor.
