Features

  • Track iPhones, iPads, Android ...

    Navizon I.T.S. can locate and track any Wi-Fi enabled smart phone or tablet, including iPhones, iPads, Android devices, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian, as well as laptops and all Wi-Fi tags.
  • Accurate Real Time Locating

    Navizon I.T.S. is a RTLS that locates active Wi-Fi devices throughout a coverage area with higher accuracy than that provided by technologies such as Assisted GPS and access point/cell tower locations. Navizon I.T.S. enables businesses to track Wi-Fi devices down to a specific floor and room level, providing a new level of insight for locating devices and their owners throughout a large or crowded facility.
  • Custom Floor Plan Views

    Navizon I.T.S. administrators can upload a facility's custom floor plan. Floor plans enable Navizon One users to navigate through a site and track other users with floor and room layouts instead of Google maps. Also, Navizon I.T.S. provides operators with the ability to visualize device locations in a 2-dimensional representation of the rooms on each floor.
  • Unobtrusive surveillance

    Navizon I.T.S. works in the background, quietly and unobtrusively locating Wi-Fi- enabled devices. These devices are tracked within the coverage area (site), which is defined by a network of nodes. No application is needed on the devices to be tracked. The only requirement is that their Wi-Fi radios be turned on, which is the default in most smart phones, tablets and laptops.
  • Simple deployment

    Navizon I.T.S. nodes are small devices, placed approximately within 100 feet of each other to cover a three-dimensional space (site). A site may span a multi-story building or multiple buildings in a campus. Nodes are simply plugged into standard electrical outlets for power. No wiring is necessary, as the nodes automatically configure themselves into a wireless mesh network.
  • Available today

    Navizon I.T.S. can be installed and configured in a single day. There is no need to wait for anyone to map your site. You simply install the nodes throughout the building, upload your floor plans, identify the location of the nodes, and your system is up and running.

Wi-Fi Tags

Navizon provides Wi-Fi tags to track people and assets with Navizon I.T.S.
Wristband
Wristband Tags are very rugged and waterproof. They issue alerts if the wristband loop is broken or when the battery is low.
Compact
Compact These tags have a push-button that, when pressed, sends a signal that may be turned into an alert. They have vibration sensors to indicate when the tag is in motion, and can issue low-battery alerts.
  • What they are Wi-Fi tags consist of a radio transmitter and battery housed in a durable enclosure. The tag's radio transmits using the IEEE 802.11b Wireless Fidelity protocol Each tag is identified by its unique 48-bit MAC address. Some tags have push-buttons that enable actions such as issuing alerts. Battery life is about 6 months.
  • How they work Tags transmit a periodic signal that can be detected by Wi-Fi access points operating in monitoring mode. Their MAC address uniquely identifies them. Triangulating based on the received signal strength enables determining their location. A tag's transmit interval or "beaconing rate", set at the factory, is about every 2 seconds.
  • How they are used Compact tags may be carried by people or attached to objects, enabling their real-time locating and tracking. Wristband tags are designed to track people. The push-button in compact tags can trigger actions when pressed. For example, for a patient to request help, an emergency room technician to summon assistance, or an operator to initiate a maintenance work order for mobile equipment that malfunctions.
