Asset Tags Officially Shipped

February 15, 2018

Bluetooth Asset Tag starts shipping! If you're already ordered your tags, here's a short guide to get you started.

Using your Bluetooth Asset Tag? Be Sure to Enable Telemetry

As of now, current Asset Tag comes with firmware version 1.1. That means, your telemetry packet includes two kinds of data: the standard telemetry packet and also a button data packet. The button-related data helps you know the last time the button was clicked.
Note:  We're still working on the button data packet. Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming firmware updates, including button click improvements.

Activating / Deactivating your Asset Tag

By default, the Bluetooth Asset Tags are shipped powered on. If you want to switch it off, hold down the button for at least 5 seconds, if the LED lights up slowly, the tag is turning off and no packet is broadcasting.
To start up a tag that is not broadcasting, hold down the button for at least 5 seconds. If the LED light flashes quickly,  the tag is powering on.
Stay tuned of new firmware updates including user experience improvements and additional features in the upcoming weeks.
