BlueBeacon Keyfob Tag is a keyfob-like battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon. With second-generation hardware based on nRF52832 SoC, energy consumption has been improved. It simultaneously supports multiple
technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode). It also supports the new Safety packet.
BlueBeacon Keyfob Tag can be used as an identification badge for personnel or assets. By using the internal accelerometer, it can be configured to automatically enter into low-power mode for battery savings.
BlueBeacon Keyfob Tag uses a couple of CR2032 coin batteries that are easily replaceable by simply removing the snap-fit cover.
8 slots configurable for non-connectable advertising frames:
- 4 slots, each configurable for Eddystone frame types: UID, URL, TLM or EID.
Full support for specifications Eddystone Configuration GATT Service by Google
- 4 slots, each configurable for the following frame types: iBeacon, Quuppa (Direction Finding packet)
Advertising interval (independently configurable for each slot): 0.1 to 5 secs
TX power (independently configurable for each slot): -40 dBm, -20dBm to 4 dBm (with 4dB steps)
Additional configuration options: non-connectable mode, anonymous mode, programmable time period, orientation/motion-detection mode, locked/unlocked mode, change password
Support for Safety packet: beacon ID, battery status, motion detection, button-press (short/long), man-down detection
Configurable with BlueBeacon Manager App for Android and

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 Bluetooth LE 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.
