BEACONS


With environmental sensors

BlueBeacon Sensor

BlueBeacon Sensor is a sensor-enabled 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 Sensor integrates temperature, humidity and pressure sensors. Sensor data are broadcast with proprietary Sensors packet. The vented enclosure ensures accurate measurements. Target markets are: home automation, retail, industry.
The 2xAA alkaline battery pack ensures a long operating life. Batteries are easily replaceable by simply removing the snap-fit 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 Sensor is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.

BlueBeacon Sensor is compatible with Quuppa Intelligent Locating System, a powerful technology platform for novel location based services and applications. It enables real-time tracking of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) smart tags and devices, with accuracy even down to a few centimeters.
