Beacon App Development

“Discover the new face of your smart-phone as we deliver an outstanding user-experience with beacon-based mobile app”

Today, the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) is not new – it has potential to change the world just as internet did. And over the time, IoT will be like fabled elephant—that it will be much bigger than any of us can imagine it being today. The powerful face behind this is BLE and Beacon– who made the concept of connecting object possible.

What is BLE and Beacon all about?

  • BLE: Bluetooth low energy is a wireless technology which is intended to provide considerably reduced power consumption and cost designed for inter-connected machines and appliances.
  • Beacons: Beacons are the small, inexpensive and micro-location based technology device equipped with BLE. It detects the beacon-based mobile app within the range of 1 to 100m and communicates with them by sending ads, coupons or supplementary product information. This offers personalization and drives more sales.

Two technologies are widely used to build beacon-based mobile apps:

  • Eddystone: It is the Google platform that enables you to manage beacon by integrating with Google services and help users’ devices to discover content and functionality across Android, native apps and the web.
  • iBeacon: It is Apple’s implementation of BLE wireless technology to create a different way of providing location-based information and service to iOS and Android devices.

Beacons are responsible to deliver highly contextual mobile engagement

  • Right Place: Engages app users by adding contextualized messaging based on the exact location
  • Right Time: Triggers the message when your customer is thinking of your brand
  • Right Audience: Push notifies the customers when they pass by your brand

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Beacon App

Beacons are Bluetooth Low Energy devices that communicate data. The broadcasted message is then detected and processed by receiver devices such as mobile phones, tablets which have the app functioning on specific IOS.

Beacons operate in between NFC(narrow range) and GPS(broad range), and so this makes them superior and more effective than the two.

Since BLE beacons consume very low energy, their battery life can withstand a maximum of 2 years. Batteries are not rechargeable and needs to go for a battery replacement. The battery-life of beacons varies depending upon the brand, purpose, usage level, and more.

Due to several security layers, the customers must have their mobile’s Bluetooth turned on, enable location service through the particular app, and opt-in indoor notifications. Moreover, many are unknown to the fact that beacons don’t store information. Instead, they only pass the information through the cloud.

Beacons can talk with all phones having a beacon identifying facility. Some businesses have only authorized apps to interact with their beacons, and so this allows only a closed network. Whereas most beacons have publicly identifiable UID in which case the access is quite open.
