BeaconFence: Included with RAD Server Single Site License in 10.2.2 Enterprise and Architect Editions

by Dec 22, 2017

BeaconFence is a developer proximity solution that delivers precise “GPS-Free” indoor/outdoor user location tracking and events with radial and geometric zones for any physical location and layout. Visually draw the layout of the physical location and beacon placement to track location information down to inches. Create radial and rectangular zones and track intersections, enters, and exits with callback events. BeaconFence enables developers to take proximity beacons to the next level by adding precision spatial location awareness to their applications both indoors and outdoors.

The BeaconFence component has many different properties and events you can set up, such as the OnZoneEnter event to trigger an event in the user’s client application as he enters a pre-defined zone.

It also includes the Beacon Fencing Map Editor. You can easily create a new map using this GUI editor, and load an existing bitmap, such as an office floor plan, to use as your beacon-fencing map. With BeaconFence, you can set up several maps for different areas in your factory, for example, or floors in your building.

Embarcadero Technology Partner Woll2Woll sells a great add-on for BeaconFence.

Woll2Woll’s external editor (BEAM) provides additional usability enhancements since it can be run as a standalone application. You can design maps without using RAD Studio, and you can even just bring your iPhone or tablet and edit the maps from the cloud.
