San Francisco — biix deployed smartTags for the first time recently.

The main concept behind utilizing smartTags is to provide yet another simple and easy way for building owners and operators to get to their information.

How they are used

smartTags are rated for indoor/outdoor use. They utilize an adhesive, allowing them to be applied to any surface. smartTags do not use batteries, so they are essentially maintenance free.

Ways to deploy

In the initial deployment, smartTags are being utilized to call up biix Daily Rounds, shown in the first example depicting an air handler. The second example shows a smartTag calling up all the 1-line drawings for the building.

Daily Rounds are cloud-based forms designed by biix, and deeply integrated with other information sources that biix manages. smartTags can be utilized to access drawings, SOOs, SOPs, 1-lines, O&M manuals, training videos and asset locations. They can also link to virtual tours, and are ideally suited to getting you to building-related information, fast.
