SPREO offers proximity services, geofencing and zone detection as tools that used to trigger location based events. Events include push notifications, application access, etc.

Proximity Services

Events can be triggered when a user or asset is within a predetermined proximity to a specified BLE beacon or virtual beacon. The proximity range, the specified beacon, as well as the triggered action are easily configured in SPREO’s content management system (CMS).

Geofencing and zone detection

A geofence is built and tailored in SPREO’s CMS by constructing a closed series of x,y (indoors) or lat,long coordinates (outdoors) to form virtual geographic borders (ie. zones). SPREO can then detect exactly when a user/asset enters or exits a zone. Given the accuracy of SPREO’s zone detection, this feature can be used for meeting room check-ins, location-conditional in-app access, occupancy analytics, push notifications, and more.

Enter/exit area detection

For specific use cases, SPREO can then detect exactly when a user/asset enters or exits an area by placing differentiated beacons that correspond to entry/exit points.
