BlueBeacon Mini

BlueBeacon Mini is a small form-factor battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon. With second-generation firmware version, it simultaneously supports multiple technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode).
BlueBeacon Mini is tiny and lightweight: it is the perfect choice for stable or temporary installations (shops, museums, exhibits, trade fairs, ...), for pilot projects, for movable installations, for asset identification.
BlueBeacon Mini is powered by a CR2477 coin cell, that can be easily replaced by simply unscrewing the back panel.

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. BlueBeacon devices uses iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications

Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines BLE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used individually or in combinations. BlueBeacon Mini is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.
