FAQ

  • What are beacons and how do they work?

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

    Beacons broadcast signals. Smartphones with relevant apps pick up these signals when they are near: this is where the fun begins and why mobile users get beacon apps.

    Why?

    • Beacons offer navigation services. Beacon signals contain unique ID numbers a smartphone app can recognize and use for navigation.
    • Beacons help trigger events and send proximity-based notifications to users’ devices with relevant content. For instance, when people pass by a restaurant, they receive a notification about daily specials.
    • Beacons benefit business owners by promoting their products and sending useful information to users.
  • What is iBeacon and what is the difference between iBeacon and beacons?

    In a nutshell, iBeacon is a specific protocol created by Apple to make sense of BLE transmitters. Beacons are the physical products.

  • How are beacons different from GPS?

    Currently, the main difference between beacons and GPS is location: beacon signals function indoors (thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)); GPS signals function extremely well outdoors.

    For very best results, use GPS outdoors and beacons indoors. Simple

  • There are so many beacons on the market. What are the differences? Which one should I buy?

    Estimote and Kontakt provide the most popular beacons of the many manufacturers. Beacons usually have a BLE module, CPU, and a battery onboard. They can also have extras based on requirements.

    The following list covers some of the main differences. Buyers need to decide what is best for their needs.
    Form: USB dongles (for POSs), stickers (for moving objects), and more
    Power supply: alkaline batteries, li-ion cells, USB powered
    Extra sensors for temperature, humidity, acceleration
    Design: form, size, branded beacons are also possible
    Support: SDK, supported transmission protocols, infrastructure, updates

  • What are some businesses I can start with iBeacon?

    iBeacon technology can visualize a customer's location within its range in real time. Any system can be designed in such a way to be easily adjustable in the future besides being able to enhance your current or future business significantly. Beacons can be used for targeted location-based marketing solutions. They can also be used to navigate through commercial real estate and indoor public places, create guided tours, find people and products, and much more.

    As iBeacon evolves, it could be used more frequently outdoors for public spaces and events, markets, outdoor exhibitions and city tours. BLE Beacons could be used outdoors for promotion triggering start of an activity when a user approaches a point of interest.

  • What does the future look like for iBeacon?

    Beacon technology keeps evolving to create a consistent indoor experience. For example, Estimote has announced its next generation, GDPR-compliant proximity beacons equipped with a new special OS for the physical world.

    We believe an increase in commercial deployments of iBeacon is coming within the next few years. There will also be an uptick of beacons being used for both indoor navigation and promotional push notifications.

  • What is the alternative to iBeacon?

    Eddystone, a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon protocol released by Google in July 2015, is an alternative to iBeacon.

  • Where is iBeacon technology the most needed?

    Indoor positioning and step-by-step navigation inside large facilities like shopping malls, airports and train stations, stadiums, hospitals, museums, galleries, etc.

    Tracking solutions to monitor warehouse inventory and storage conditions and to replace passive tags with active ones.

    For promotion, inviting visitors to come by, sending them special offers or product of the day.

    Improve in-store experience by sending personalized push notifications based on a visitor’s location inside the store.

    Automation solutions programmed to initiate small, secure actions, such as automatically opening doors or paying bus fare via a card.
