Track Guests in Real-Time Throughout Your Facility

Beacon-articleCompatible with iBeacon, Eddystone, and Bluetooth standards, TDS Beacon provides a revolutionary approach to tracking on-site employees and visitors by offering Real-Time Locational Service (RTLS) information on uniquely assigned badges.


What is Beacon Tracking?

Beacons are small, wireless transmitters that typically use low-energy Bluetooth technology to send signals to other proximity devices strategically placed throughout your facility. The beacon device works by repeatedly broadcasting out an identifier, and pairing with these devices, allowing security teams to track a visitors whereabouts in real-time as they move throughout your facility.

How does TDS Beacon work?

The beacon device itself contains a CPU, radio, and batteries, and it works by repeatedly broadcasting out an identifier. 

Once connected, the beacon will carry out specific, set functions it has been programmed to perform.

Beacon technology is particularly useful in highly sensitive, security-conscious environments sich as Pharmaceutical, Health-Care, Chemical Plants and Data Centres.

Real-Time On-Site Accountability

With no user action required, TDS Beacon can be rapidly deployed on a global scale to offer organisations improved visibility of employees and visitors across multiple sites. TDS Beacon provides a revolutionary approach to on-site staff.


Consisting of two elements, a sender and a receiver, TDS Beacon functions by integrating beacon transmitters with ID badges, then deploying several receivers across the site.

As ID badges pass from gateway to gateway, new transactions are recorded and stored in the TDS Cloud for a centralised view of on-site movements.
