Founded in 2014 by Brendan Waters and Jon Ruiz in Kansas City, EB Systems works with clients all over the United States to create connected environment solutions.

Electronic Beacon (EB) Systems is an industry leader in mobile apps, Bluetooth technology, and proprietary Beacon Reader technology that help to drive the “Internet of Things” (IoT) industry. We create data-driven solutions for a range of industries and clients. Whether you are a small business owner that needs to streamline your operation, a construction site needing workplace accountability. or a city manager that wants to capture real-time data from your community to make improvements, we have a solution for you.


How do our Beacon Readers differ from traditional Bluetooth beacons? 

Beacons are small computers that use proximity Bluetooth technology to detect nearby human presence that then triggers digital actions to deliver informational, workforce related and personalized experiences. When a user walks past an area where a device is set up, a beacon can send a code with a message to their mobile device through a mobile app. Users can then receive messages from beacons via Bluetooth signal.

Our patented and solution-driven Beacon Reader systems were developed with a variety of business types in mind. Our Beacon Readers provide all the same capabilities of a traditional Bluetooth beacon but are capable of many unique solutions, with or without a mobile app. By tracking wearables and sensors we can connect your physical space to the digital world.

EB Systems is a great partner that allowed our business to secure a POC implementation for an “off-the shelf” hardware/software pairing to monitor devices. After the POC was complete, our multi-location business continued to devise a long term strategy for further commitments in the monitoring of devices.

Our POC was a pretty robust and scaled to a large deployment of both Beacon Reader technology and location services on mobile devices. Over 150 devices were deployed and tracked as part of the POC.

The individuals, Brendan, Jon and Bill are very knowledgeable, polite and respectful of sensitive information as the POC was in use and are great to work with as the business continues to analyze the next deployment!

We did a demo of EB Systems during the pandemic to help track who was in the office and in what areas as a potential contact tracing tool. I was very impressed with the system capabilities and how awesome Brendan and Jon were to work with. They helped cater the platform to what we were looking for.

In early 2020, Black & Veatch (a global consulting, engineering & construction company) launched a Covid Response Accelerator cohort to collaborate with emerging technology companies to innovate on solutions that could save lives, support our community, and strengthen our economy. EB Systems was invited into our accelerator and together we looked at an adaption of their proximity sensing platform to support social distancing requirements with sensors, data and analytics. Jon and Brendan were energetic and resourceful in iterating design and integrating their platform with our data visualization tools. Their team has the drive and acumen to make a difference.

Brendan and Jon are managing a company that believes in solid analytics and easy set up. We have used them for various pilot projects with some very large companies and they have been nothing short of knowledgable. and easy to work with. Their technology set-up is not overly complex and rarely has downtime, making it a perfect solution for tracking users in the field. I see them moving into additional verticals and providing much needed data and insights where it was previously lacking. I look forward to seeing where they go in to the future.
