Gateway

OVERVIEW

Easy to Get Started

A LocaTOR™ Gateway reader is easily configured to attach directly into your network via an Ethernet cable. It is quickly configured to relay information to the LocaTOR™ A-Vue software using its IP address.

One Is All It Needs

For most installations only one LocaTOR™ Gateway reader will be required being able to communicate wirelessly with hundreds of LocaTOR™s.

Closest Proximity

The LocaTOR™ Gateway reader is able to identify which LocaTOR™ an A-Tag is closest to based on signal strength. This opens up a host of location-enabled business applications.

Quality Support

The Locasys team is available throughout the commissioning process and to help implement, launch, and support your location-aware business solution.
