About Us

As the leaders in BLE-based IoT solutions, Bluvision continues to innovate our Location Services and Condition Monitoring solutions. Innovation and scalability drive both our technology roadmaps and our day-to-day operations. Our list of “Industry Firsts” is long and continues to grow daily. A few of these firsts are below.

  • First beacon company to launch as cloud-based beacon fleet management capability.
  • First beacon company to support Eddystone and iBeacon frames in the same beacon.
  • First company to launch a BLE beacon badge with a battery life of greater than 1-year. Ours have 2-year plus battery life.
  • First company to launch a tamper-proof BLE beacon.
  • First company to launch a BLE- Wifi Gateway.
  • First company to launch a BLE-based RTLS solution with a sub 2 meter in real-time solution.
  • First company to launch a BLE-based condition monitoring solution.

Now as part of HID Global and Assa Abloy, our lists of “First’s” continue to grow at an even faster pace, and deploy our solutions into the Access Control, Personal Identify, RFiD and Hospitality industries.

  • First solution that supports both Building Access Control technologies and Location Services technologies in the same badge.
  • First device to support both NFC and BLE technologies in the same device.
  • First company to develop a wireless, low-cost “Panic-button” solution for the hospitality industry in the same device.

But this innovation does no good if our solutions aren’t scalable and solving real-world problems that have tangible value.

Bluvision strives to do both every day.
