The Kontakt.io Portal Beam is a wireless, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), cloud-based sensor platform that quantifies rooms and delivers building insights in real-time.
The Portal Beam has an 8-core CPU with neural network architecture and Bluetooth 5.0 readiness, Infrared (IR) beaconing, RSSI fingerprinting, thermal camera, and environmental sensors.
The Kontakt.io Portal Beam's powerful occupancy and traffic measurement capabilities can deliver complete visibility into your spaces as well as support the whole spectrum of space utilization use cases and deliver insights and analytics to help you understand how spaces are being used.
Room Occupancy Monitoring: monitor how people occupy spaces and track the occupancy and utilization of rooms without infringing on privacy.
Seat-Level Occupancy Monitoring: measure the occupancy of multi-seat workstations in enclosed rooms or open spaces. Resulting in detailed, seat-level utilization data. When in Seat Mode a Portal Beam measures the count of workstation seats that are occupied and not occupied.
Footfall Traffic Counting: counts people traffic in floors, or entire buildings. When in Traffic Mode, a Portal Beam detects movement and counts people entering and exiting a space defined by an adjustable threshold line. This allows users to understand space, floor, and building utilization data against defined capacity limits.
Environment Monitoring: the Portal Beam environmental sensors measure ambient air temperature, relative humidity, ambient light level, air pressure, and a calculated Air Quality Index (AQI) level. Additional sensors are optional.
Mobile Indoor Navigation: with a built-in iBeacon, Portal Beams are the infrastructure for mobile-based wayfinding apps and SDKs. With Portal Beams deployed in every room, there is no additional need for a standalone iBeacon infrastructure.
Asset and Badge Tracking: with its BLE-radio and Infrared-array the Portal Beam enables location-tracking use cases of tagged assets, people, or visitors. Providing room-level accuracy and low-latency tracking data delivers unlimited use cases - from healthcare workflow, contact tracing, pairing visitors with hosts, to tracking the flow and location of valuable assets. Room-level certain tracking of assets or people requires Bluetooth-enabled Tags (in the 2000s known as RFID) like the Kontakt.io Smart Badge or Asset Tag 2.
