BEACON MANAGEMENT


Connect beacons with cloud

BlueBeacon Gateway

Unit price from €89 *

BlueBeacon Gateway is a BLE-beacon reader that allows to interface an installation of BLE beacons directly with the cloud, via LAN or WiFi network (802.11.n).
BlueBeacon Gateway is available in two versions:
- RB/O: with omnidirectional BLE antenna;
- RB/D: with directive BLE antenna.
Possible applications with BlueBeacon Gateway are: remote monitoring of fixed beacon installations; identification of BLE beacons used as active radio tags applied to moving objects or people.
Functional software customizations are available on demand.

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.


The Physical Web is an open approach, developed by Google, to enable quick and seamless web-based interactions with physical objects and locations. The Physical Web uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) because of its ubiquity on mobile devices, and is based on Eddystone-URL format.
