What is Beacons?

Beacons are small, low-powered transmitters that communicate with smart devices in a predefined physical radius.

Beacons tie physical location to content delivery, allowing brands to effectively trigger messages, promotional offers, or unique app experiences based on a user's precise physical location.

iBeacon: iBeacon is the trademark for an indoor proximity system that Apple Inc. calls "a new class of low-powered, low-cost transmitters 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 to an iBeacon.

The "iBeacon" nomenclature confusion arose in 2013, when Apple took Bluetooth LE technology and packaged it into iOS7 and all of their newest devices. Then, using their standard "i-Naming" convention, Apple effectively branded their version of the technology as "iBeacon." While it is true that many beacon manufacturers are indeed working with Apple's Apple's trademarked iBeacon technology, it should be noted that any Bluetooth LE-enabled device, including devices running Android, can interact with beacons.

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology

iBeacon technology works using the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, also known as Bluetooth Smart.

iBeacon uses Bluetooth low energy proximity sensing to transmit a universally unique identifier picked up by a compatible app or operating system. The identifier can then be looked up over the internet to determine the device's physical location or trigger an action on the device such as a check-in on social media or a push notification.

With the help of an iBeacon, a smartphone's software can pinpoint its own location in a store. iBeacon can help a phone show notifications of items nearby that are on sale.
