“Tags” are Bluetooth (BLE) tags which are fixed to an “Asset”. Our tags have either a built-in NFC chip or a printed QR code representing their unique “Tag ID”.

CHECK ASSET & RADAR
Not sure if the right tag is fixed to the right asset? Enter the unique “Tag ID” and “Asset Code” manually or either by reading the NFC tag or scanning the barcode. And click “Check” to see if both have been linked correctly.
Want to see how many assets are around you? Click the Radar button on the main menu and wait a few seconds as your phone will start looking for assets in its immediate vicinity.
With the “Fingerprinting” feature we teach our “Machine Learning” algorithm the Bluetooth signal “characteristics” for your current location, this in order to increase location accuracy. Make sure you entered the Bluetooth MAC address of your device via “Settings”. Enter or OCR the “Location ID” of the location you want to train. And check via email@example.com if “Fingerprinting” is enabled for your location.
Once “Fingerprinting” is in progress, walk in the specific location for at least 30s. Don’t leave this location when “Fingerprinting is in progress”!
