What is a standalone badge?
A standalone badge is a Bluetooth ID card that measures proximity to other standalone badges with Bluetooth Low Energy technology. Standalone badges do not require pairing with a phone app, hence the name Standalone.
How do I get one?
If you are an employee please contact your company's Care685 Program Administrator.
How do I carry it?
A standalone badge can be worn on a lanyard, kept in pockets, wallets, belts, or attached to phones or existing ID badges. Just remember to keep it on your person.
Do I need to charge my standalone badge?
No, standalone badges do not need to be charged. Due to the nature of Bluetooth Low Energy technology, they have a long battery life of 1 year.
How do I check the battery status?
Press and hold the grey circle on the front of the standalone card.
Locate the indicator light on the back of the card to determine the battery status. A fully charged battery will display as green.
What happens if I lose my standalone badge?
If you lose your badge, you will need to contact your Care685 Program Administrator to get a new one.
