Advantages Of Using BLE Beacon And Mesh Technology For People Tracking And Locating

People tracking and locating systems using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon technology offer several advantages in various applications and industries. Here are some of the key benefits

Precision and Accuracy

BLE beacon technology provides precise location information, especially in indoor environments where GPS signals may not be available or accurate. This accuracy is crucial for indoor navigation.

Low Power Consumption

BLE beacons are designed to be energy-efficient, allowing for extended battery life. This makes them suitable for the long-term deployments without the need for frequent battery replacements or recharging.


BLE beacons are relatively inexpensive to deploy and maintain, making them a cost-effective solution for businesses and organizations looking to implement tracking and locating systems.

Easy Deployment

Setting up a BLE beacon-based tracking system is relatively straightforward. Beacons can be installed quickly at fixed locations or carried by individuals


BLE beacon systems can easily scale to accommodate larger areas or more tracked objects. Additional beacons can be deployed as needed to extend coverage or improve tracking accuracy.

Real-time Tracking

BLE beacon technology allows for real-time tracking of people or assets. This feature is valuable for applications like security monitoring and immediate response to emergencies.

Integration with Mobile Devices

Most people carry smartphones or devices with the Bluetooth capabilities, making it easy and convenient to interact with BLE beacons without the need for specialized hardware

Improved Customer Experience

In retail environments, BLE beacons enable proximity-based marketing and personalized customer experiences. Retailers can send location-specific promotions and information to customers' smartphones.

Enhanced Safety and Security

In healthcare and industrial settings, BLE beacon systems can improve safety and security by tracking the location of personnel, patients, and equipment. This helps in emergency response

Data Analytics

BLE beacon systems generate valuable data that can be analyzed to gain insights into user behavior, traffic patterns, and asset utilization. This data can inform decision-making and improve operational efficiency.


BLE beacon technology provides a wide range of applications, including indoor navigation, retail marketing, healthcare, logistics, and more. Their versatility makes them suitable for various industries

Privacy Controls

Modern BLE beacon systems often include privacy features that allow users to opt in or opt out of tracking. This helps address privacy concerns and ensures compliance with regulations.

How it works

BLE Beacon Technology

People tracking and locating systems using BLE beacon technology have gained popularity in various applications, including indoor navigation, asset tracking, and safety monitoring. BLE beacons are small, low-power devices that can transmit signals to nearby BLE-enabled devices, such as smartphones or dedicated receivers. Here’s an overview of how these systems work and their applications:

BLE Beacon Technology

BLE beacons are small wireless devices that emit Bluetooth signals at regular intervals. They can be powered by batteries, making them energy-efficient and suitable for long-term deployments. BLE beacons are typically configured with a unique identifier (UUID) and can also transmit additional information like signal strength (RSSI) and battery level.


Components of a People Tracking & Locating System​

BLE Beacons

These are deployed at fixed locations or carried by individuals. They emit Bluetooth signals at regular intervals.

Receiver Devices

These can be smartphones, tablets, or dedicated receivers equipped with Bluetooth capabilities.


Specialized software or mobile apps are used to collect and process beacon signals.


Indoor Navigation

People tracking systems using BLE beacons can provide indoor navigation services, helping users find their way in shopping malls, airports, museums, and large buildings where GPS signals are often unreliable.

Asset Tracking

LE beacon technology is used to track assets, such as equipment, inventory, or luggage, within a defined area, like a warehouse or airport.

Safety Monitoring

In healthcare facilities, BLE beacons can be used to monitor the location and movement of patients, staff, or equipment, enhancing safety and efficiency.

Proximity Marketing

Retailers can use beacon technology to send location-based promotions and advertisements to customers’ smartphones when they are near specific products or areas within a store.


BLE beacons can help enhance security by monitoring the movement of personnel within restricted areas or tracking unauthorized access.

Working Principle


Depending on your location and the use case, there may be regulations regarding the use of tracking technologies and the collection of location data. Compliance with these regulations is essential.

In summary, people tracking and locating systems using BLE beacon technology offer a versatile solution for various industries and applications. However, careful planning, privacy considerations, and proper implementation are necessary to ensure their effectiveness and compliance with relevant regulations.

How it works

Wirepas MESH Tracking

Wirepas Mesh is a wireless mesh networking technology designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial applications. It enables devices to communicate with each other in a decentralized and self-organizing manner, forming a resilient and scalable network. Here’s how Wirepas Mesh technology works:

Mesh Topology

Wirepas Mesh networks consist of multiple devices, which can include sensors, actuators, and other IoT devices. These devices communicate with each other to create a mesh network. In a mesh topology, each device (node) is capable of relaying data


When devices are deployed, they automatically discover each other and establish connections. This self-organizing capability simplifies the deployment process, as there is no need for manual configuration of network parameters.


Our MESH Tracking solutions are scalable and adaptable to the evolving needs of businesses. Whether it's expanding the tracking area or adding new devices, our system can easily accommodate growth without compromising performance.

Multi-Hop Communication

Devices in a Wirepas Mesh network can communicate with each other even if they are not in direct radio range. Data is relayed through intermediate nodes, allowing for long-distance communication within the network.

Low Power Operation

Wirepas Mesh is designed to be energy-efficient. Devices can operate on battery power for extended periods, making it suitable for battery-powered IoT devices that need to conserve energy.

Frequency Hopping

Wirepas Mesh uses frequency hopping to avoid interference and ensure reliable communication. Devices switch between different channels within the ISM (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical)

Dynamic Routing

The routing of data in Wirepas Mesh networks is dynamic. The network continually adapts to changes in device locations or environmental conditions, optimizing data paths for efficiency


Wirepas Mesh includes built-in security features to protect data and communication. This includes encryption and authentication mechanisms to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of data.

Support for Large-Scale Deployments

Wirepas Mesh is designed to support large-scale deployments with thousands or even millions of devices. This scalability is crucial for IoT applications in smart cities, industrial automation, and logistics.


Wirepas Mesh technology is agnostic to the hardware used in devices, allowing for flexibility and interoperability across different types of IoT hardware.

Application Agnostic

Wirepas Mesh can be used for a wide range of applications, from asset tracking and environmental monitoring to smart lighting and industrial automation.

People Tracking & Locating

 Wirepas Mesh technology enables the creation of robust, self-organizing, and scalable wireless mesh networks for IoT and industrial applications. Its decentralized and energy-efficient nature makes it well-suited for large-scale deployments and applications where reliability and low power consumption are essential.
