Blackline Safety Indoor Location Beacon
About Blackline Safety Indoor Location Beacon
RESPOND TO INDOOR INCIDENTS WITH PRECISION
Precise positioning empowers emergency response
In certain facilities, GPS signals alone may not provide sufficient positioning precision to locate employees during an emergency response. In such circumstances, every second counts and time wasted searching for someone could mean the difference between rescue and recovery.
Blackline Safety addresses this challenge with Location Beacons — compact wireless positioning transmitters. Beacons are installed where employees operate, from one per floor to one per room depending on facility size and operations. Beacon locations are then recorded on custom floor or site plans on a live map in Blackline Live, Blackline's safety monitoring software, so you always know exactly where your people are in context of their surroundings. Beacons are self-powered and affordable, taking only minutes to install without any calibration or triangulation.
Each beacon broadcasts a unique identity number that is received by Blackline Safety’s monitoring devices, including G7c and G7x. When personnel are within proximity of beacons, monitoring devices store the nearby beacon identities and reports their location to Blackline Live.
