Beacons? iBeacon™? Eddystone?
How it works.
Bluetooth Beacons are small transmitters that are permanently sending a signal in a distance from a few inches/centimeters (close), to a few foot/meters (near) and up to 70 meters to all devices that are listening for such a signal.
Our devices work both with Apple’s iBeacon™ and Google’s Eddystone protocol, depending on the menu selection you make at the installation moment or whenever you want, after the deployment.
All mobile devices having a Bluetooth Low Energy capability and situated in the beacons’ range will receive the signal. The applications installed on the mobile device will know what type of action to take, like showing notifications, guiding the user to specific locations, delivering coupons or identifying specific goods or assets wearing beacons.
Content Management System for Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons
We offer you access to our cloud based Beacon Management platform that allows you to build micro location enabled apps around your BLE Beacons. If you buy beacons from us, or other vendors, you can centrally manage all of them through our Beacon Management platform and easily add a great user experience to your apps and share your beacon locations with 3rd party apps.
You can also get a Virtual Appliance installation or connect it to your existing systems (CRM, ERP etc) via API Calls.
Onyx Beacons / iBeacon™ / Eddystone
We offer two choices of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacons that fit all use cases, ranging from adding iBeacon™ and Eddystone support for a small short term venue, to large scale permanent enterprise deployments in thousands of locations. Our hardware provides flexible power supply, either by coin cell or AA batteries (up to 4 years battery life), connectivity to external power supply or powered via USB.
Onyx Beacon’s micro-location and proximity beacons are designed to meet the standards using Apple iBeacon™ and Google Eddystone technology and freely take advantage of our cloud based Beacon Management platform. They support apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Android devices that make use of the iBeacon™ or Eddystone protocol.
Beacon Management Mobile App
The OnyxBeacon mobile app available for iOS and Android helps you discover our Bluetooth Beacons or ANY other BLE Beacons around you. It also allows you the possibility to change UUID, Major, Minor, Power and Frequency of the signal for our beacons or to upgrade their firmware.
Have too many beacons around you? Drag down the table in the Beacons tab and filter beacons by Major, Minor and UUID. If you have a beacon and our app doesn’t recognize it, the only thing you need to do is add the UUID in the Settings tab. You can find our app for iOS and Android using the links below:
