Beacons? iBeacon™? Eddystone? 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.
How it works.
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 BeaconsWe 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™ / EddystoneWe 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 AppThe 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:
ProximityAdsExtending a brand’s reach on consumers’ devices and delivering a notification in the right place and at the right time is extremely useful and has a large impact. It is now possible to reach consumers directly on their mobile devices and not only through displays, promotional staff or print media.
ProximityAds allows retailers to leverage their Bluetooth Beacons infrastructure to generate additional value and revenue while maintaining control over what ads and notifications are being sent to users. With the option to invite and approve potential advertisers they ensure a level of quality and frequency of notifications that reach consumers.
For Mall Operators Place Bluetooth Beacons at all mall entry points and notify mall visitors about new offers, latest movies, all things are offered at the mall. Make your offers accessible to general audience. Deploy and make use of BLE Beacons across apps and make local offers searchable.
