What is AirFinder

AirFinder is an affordable real-time location system (RTLS) that leverages RFID and other unique technologies to help you keep track of tools, monitor equipment usage, optimize tool leasing, support employee safety, and much more.

AirFinder can even go beyond standard construction RFID tracking systems to monitor conditions like temperature and shock.

What makes AirFinder Different?

Construction is a tough business. Here are some ways AirFinder makes life easier and more efficient.

  • Wi-Fi Independent & Zero IoT

    AirFinder provides its own Symphony Link IoT network, which connects to cellular modems, thus requiring no on-site IT installation or management, leaving connectivity issues in the dust.
  • Works where the worker goes

    Monitor the flow of personnel and material from one job site to another. AirFinder is smart enough to pick up where it left off between its Symphony Link networks.
  • Monitor Building Conditions

    Additional sensors for temperature and humidity allow you to monitor conditions inside to ensure installed materials are within spec, and you can detect problems, like leaks, before they become catastrophes.
  • It is inexpensive

    The system requires little infrastructure, and the battery lasts for years, keeping costs and maintenance low.

Construction Use Cases

  • Prefab tracking

    Using a system like AirFinder, you can track prefab pieces, starting from creation through the shipping process. Even after delivery to the construction site. Managers receive alerts when prefab is moved into the yard, indicating whether you are on target for install.
  • Process Optimization

    General contractors often work within thin profit margins. If costs are 1% too high, they could lose money, just as their profit margin could double with a 1% cost reduction. Location data optimizes the processes, meaning major implications for the company’s bottom line. For example, a contractor could use AirFinder to monitor the time spent running each scissor lift on a job site. If rented equipment is not in use, they can update future rental agreements to cut costs.
  • Theft Monitoring and Prevention

    Unfortunately, theft is all too common at construction sites. Equipment tracking devices like AirFinder can help you immediately identify moved equipment and then determine if the new location is an easier target for theft. Additionally, Bluetooth and GPS equipment tracking tags help act as a deterrent for potential thieves.
