HID Global has acquired Bluvision, a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) provider in the Internet of Things (IoT) market. The acquisition transaction closed today and the company says financial terms are not being disclosed.
Bluvision offers real-time location system technology, presence and proximity-based location capabilities and condition monitoring solutions as well as cloud infrastructure, gateways, beacons and software as a service (SaaS).
