Sentrax Device Manager

With the Sentrax Device Manager (SDM) you can scan for nearby configurable PINIX beacons, display their battery status, view their ettings and make modifications to those settings. Configuration of beacons are password protected with a four (4) digit user settable PIN.

As an added safety feature, the beacons can only be configured with in a period of 15 minutes after installing the batteries or can be manually triggered into configuration mode by pressing the reset button on the Tag. However, this time duration can be increased through the settings to up to 3 weeks or forever.

1. By incorporating an optional cell battery, the lifespan can be extended by 4 to 12 months, depending on the advertising frequency.
