Key Features of an iBeacon app

Our iBeacon app development company can help you with a wide range of use cases: 

Location tracking

You can monitor valuable equipment, goods, or even people—this could be beneficial for dementia patients—in real-time. By using Beacon tags, responsible managers can immediately find an item’s or person’s exact location.

Indoor navigation

iBeacons are a key part of indoor navigation solutions. While combined with other tracking technologies, they can build an optimum route and guide a user to the destination point.

Marketing campaigns

Personalized marketing is possible while iBeacons activate notifications and special offers based on user preferences and behavior inside a store. They activate dynamic content depending on user action, e.g., picking an item.

Products on shelves

iBeacon app developers can use special devices that are equipped with extra sensors to monitor specific environmental parameters, such as temperature or humidity, and alert when those deviate from optimum, preventing spoiling.

Secure payments

iBeacon technology can be used for self-checkout, removing friction, and reducing purchase time. The iBeacon app identifies a specific item and activates payment from a user’s device.

Questions from our clients

What is iBeacon used for?

iBeacon is a special protocol designed by Apple Inc. It is used on small transmitting devices called BLE beacons.
iBeacon helps with the following:

  • Indoor positioning and step-by-step navigation
  • Tracking solutions
  • Promoting products and services
  • Improving in-store experience
  • Automation solutions
Can iBeacon work without an app?

Yes and no.

Yes, an iBeacon is just a small device that periodically transmits signals into an environment.

No, such signal transmission makes little sense. A smartphone can neither recognize nor use it. End users need to install and launch a native app. Plus, to start action after receiving a signal, they must have Bluetooth turned on.

Both Android and iOS support iBeacon detection.
If you are concerned that users might ignore your app, try iOS 14 App Clips to demonstrate the core functionality of your app at a glance.

What is iBeacon device?

Beacons are small, inexpensive, low-powered devices equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

Beacons broadcast signals. Beacon signals contain unique ID numbers which a smartphone app can recognize and use for navigation. Smartphones with relevant apps and Bluetooth are turned on to pick up these signals when they are near.

Beacons can also trigger events and send proximity-based notifications with relevant content to user devices. For instance, when people pass by a restaurant, they receive a notification about daily specials.

How much does an iBeacon cost?

iBeacons are relatively cheap devices.
Kontakt Anchor Beacons 2 cost $117 for the pack of three.
Estimote sells its Proximity Beacon at €140 ($150) for four units in a kit.
Beaconic offers 4 iBeacons Retail Kit for €89 ($95).
Heavy-duty beacons or beacons with various sensors onboard cost more.
Three is the minimum number of a pack due to the triangulation effect. All manufacturers offer large-order discounts.

What is the main problem faced while developing the iBeacon app?

The biggest challenge of iBeacon app development is making measuring as precise as possible.
iBeacon signals might:

  • Have issues with Wi-Fi interference because both use the same frequencies.
  • Incorrectly display when beacons toggle.
  • Lose contact with the user's smartphone due to unexpected, moving obstacles.
  • Lack of precision in open spaces and large places without walls (e.g., parking garage).

The following actions help increase signal precision:

  • Switch to a channel with different frequencies.
  • Ensure optimal hanging height and density of iBeacons.
  • Tune signal strength and range.
  • Develop a hybrid positioning system that uses geofencing and iBeacons.
