Claim of US Patent No. 10,117,308

1. A system operative to associate information with an asset or a physical space, comprising:a plurality of building control fixtures located within a structure, one or more of the plurality of building control fixtures comprising:
a sensor unit, wherein the sensor unit generates a sense signal based on sensed motion; wherein
the sensor unit comprises;
communication circuitry, the communication circuitry operative to maintain a link with a network;
a controller, the controller operative to:
manage communication with the network, wherein the communication comprises at least information of the sense signal; and wherein
wherein at least one of an external controller or at least one controller of the plurality of building control fixtures is operative to:
track locations of a first mobile device within the structure based on locations of the plurality of building control fixtures, based on received signal strength of beacons communicated between the sensor unit and the first mobile device, and based on the sensed motion, wherein the tracked locations include location estimates, wherein new location estimates based on the beacons that correspond with a location in which a building control fixture has not sensed motion are given a lower probability estimate compared to a location in which a building control fixture has sensed motion;
identify the first mobile device being within a threshold distance of a physical place based on the tracked locations of the first mobile device and a location of the physical space; and
allow the first mobile device or a user of the first mobile device to receive information associated with the physical place, or to provide information to be associated with the physical place upon identifying the first mobile device to be within the threshold distance of the physical place.
