Do we need specialized technicians at our site to install the VLogicFM sensors and gateways?
No. VLogicFM Tracking is designed to be “plug-n-play.” The steps are straightforward and can be performed by anyone who is familiar with your facility: (1) We configure all sensors and gateways before we ship them to you; (2) Upon receipt of the hardware shipment, you install the sensors on the ceiling of any room you wish to track; (3) plug …
Do I have to open any network ports or get permission to give local area network access to your network gateways?
No. VLogicFM Tracking is completely independent of your facility LAN. Neither the sensors nor our cellular network gateways require any access to your LAN. Our real-time tracking solution operates over a standard cellular network, such as Verizon, AT&T or Sprint.
Do you provide the hardware (sensors and gateways) in addition to VLogicFM Tracking software?
Yes, VLogicFM Tracking is a complete, turnkey solution. We will provide all hardware and software you need to install, configure, and activate a real-time tracking system.
What are the components of a real-time tracking system?
You will need three things: (1) Sensors, preferably wireless, to detect the specific environmental change you are tracking; (2) Network gateways to collect sensor data and transmit it to your collection point; (3) a software system to automatically collect and interpret your sensor information.
What is real-time tracking?
Real-time tracking is the ability to automatically determine motion, pressure, humidity, temperature, location and other environmental changes to spaces, objects and people, in real time — typically in a facility or building. VLogicFM Tracking currently tracks motion/occupancy, but the same general model can be used to track other environmental changes with different sensors, per customer demand.
