Introducing Portal Beam

The Portal Beam is a wireless, BLE, cloud-based sensor platform quantifying rooms and delivering building insights in real-time. Portal Beam uses nine different sensors: thermal camera, temperature, humidity, air quality, light, smoke detection, infrared beaconing, RSSI fingerprinting, and iBeacon.

The Portal Beam comes with an 8-core CPU with neural network architecture and Bluetooth 5.0 readiness. Out of the box, it's compatible and seamlessly talks to any BLE-gateway. Using the 1-click, self-onboarding workflows of the Kio Cloud you can get started with it in minutes.
