Security Technology: Businesses anonymously tracking your Cellphone
Imagine being tracked the moment you walk in the door of a building. We aren’t talking about being caught on camera. We are talking about real time precision tracking of your cellphone. Inpixon (NASDAQ:INPX) is a leader in this technology sector and they are making it a reality. Sort of like an indoor GPS, more and more businesses are anonymously tracking your position via your cellphone. No matter what the make or model it is, if it is putting out a signal of any kind (cellular, bluetooth or wifi), your exact position is being monitored and recorded with sensors that are positioned throughout the building. It is all done passively and without collecting any information other than the phone’s location. Businesses, Government agencies and Retail outlets are deploying this security technology at a rapid rate. Each phone is randomly assigned it’s own value and employees are logged and tracked independently so they can be differentiated from non employees. It even knows if you are a returning visitor.
Retail outlets are using it for more than just security. They are tracking every aisle you walk down, how long you look at an item and what paths people are taking. All in an effort to increase sales and monitor habits. Employees can be tracked to increase productivity.
Zones can be mapped out easily with the software to create ‘no phone zones’. You can then set up alerts to notify you when an unauthorized person enters the zone you specified. As you can imagine, the technology to track all devices in your business gives you an incredible advantage in productivity, efficiency and security. In the very near future you can expect this security technology and real time monitoring to be implemented in just about every business you walk into.
