About Roambee BeeAware

  • Roambee uses embedded sensors to connect everyday equipment (like shipping containers & construction equipment) to the Internet.
  • The BeeAware embedded sensors are loaned, not purchased, so you don't have to worry about up-front equipment costs.
  • Install them directly on company assets, then track them through the Roambee web-portal, which provides real-time location and cloud based analysis.
  • The devices only "wake up" to communicate with the portal at specific intervals. You'll see a 45 day battery life if pinging once per hour.
  • You can't port or change the phone number for Roambee. The area code won't match your location, but the device isn't for calling or texting so that's fine.
  • You also can't change the SIM card on a Roambee line of service, unless you're replacing the device.
