iBeacon installation and content management

iBeacon is an indoor positioning system that can notify nearby iOS 7+ devices of their presence. The technology enables a smart phone or other device to perform actions when in close proximity – within 50-70 meters – to an iBeacon. They work outside just as well as they work inside.

Mobile device platforms:

  •  iOS devices with Bluetooth 4.0+: iPhone 4S and later, iPad (3rd generation) and later, iPad Mini (1st generation) and later, iPod Touch (5th generation).
  • Macintosh computers with OS X Mavericks (10.9) and Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.3+ with Bluetooth 4.0+: Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S4 Mini, Samsung Galaxy Note 2/3, HTC One, Google/LG Nexus 7 2013 version/Nexus 4/Nexus 5, HTC Butterfly, OnePlus One…

Typical applications:

  • Shops, shopping malls: offers, advertisements, target marketing, product reviews
  • Museums, concert halls, stadiums: information, associate help

We provide the following services:

  • iBeacon customization and installation
  • Data management on our servers to build up your information center

Please note that iBeacons are not tracking devices. They are very simple and low powered bluetooth transmitters with unique hardware identifiers. For example your phone knows you’re at the shopping mall, and it can probably tell you’re next to the Big Shoes store. What iBeacon technology determines is that you’re near the men’s sports shoes section of the store.

Typical costs:

  • iBeacons: $10.00 – 29.90$/pcs.
  • Data management:
    Information center setup: $500  Optional: remote web management tool and data maintenance: 480$/year
  • Device applications, software development: from $2,500 / platform
