diyActive: Do-it-Yourself with reelyActive

For reelyActive Users & Developers

Our open architecture affords the freedom to do-it-yourself


Platform Overview

Understand physical spaces and the real-time dynamics of the people and assets within.

The reelyActive technology platform makes it possible to observe who/what is where/how, in real-time, in any physical space. This is achieved by detecting and locating all the radio-identifiable devices that are present, and then representing this information in the standard language of the web.

reelyActive Platform Overview

The result is effectively a table of who/what is present, updating in real-time, and including details on the location and status of each occupant. While simple in concept, this table enables complex and wide-reaching applications, especially when stored in a database for analysis over time.

Quick Start

Choose between a hands-on or a theoretical approach

Open Architecture

Enjoy the freedom and flexibility of interchangeable software and hardware components.

Tens of billions of radio-identifiable devices are shipping annually. Countless vendors, including reelyActive, offer radio-identification and location infrastructure. Pareto Anywhere, our open source middleware, translates their output into a real-time, web-standard data stream to feed any database and/or drive any web application.
