BlueBeacon Sensor

Contact us for availability

BlueBeacon Sensor is a sensor-enabled battery-powered Bluetooth Smart proximity-beacon, which uses iBeacon technology or Eddystone specification.
BlueBeacon Sensor integrates different environmental sensors: temperature, humidity, light. The vented enclosure ensures the required interaction for accurate parameters measurements. It allows to add environmental sensing functionality to proximity applications. Typical 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 to create beacons that can be used for a variety of applications. BlueBeacon devices are certified from Google.
