Which blukii Beacon fits your requirements?
At blukii we distinguish between two basic types of Beacon:
blukii Smart Beacon and blukii Sensor Beacon
Technically the main function of a standard Beacon is to send its own identity in form of a number. This identity number will be compared to data in a specific backend and as a result of a match an action can be triggered on a Smartphone. At blukii we call this kind of Beacon blukii Smart Beacon.
As we believe that Beacon have more potential than just sending a number, we have integrated several sensors and therefore pushed the technology to the next level. The sensor values will be transmitted like the identity number in the advertising.
A blukii Beacon with integrated sensors is called blukii Sensor Beacon.

What are blukii Smart Beacon?
How do blukii Smart Beacon work and what is crucial to look at while selecting one?
Beacon are small sensors that transmit their own unique identification number in specific, configurable intervals. This ID can be received and further processed by a counterpart like a Smartphone. These small radio transmitters (or receivers) are based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a radio technology that is known as a more energy-efficient advancement of Bluetooth. Smartphones and Tablets are supporting BLE since iOS7 or Android 4.3.
Finding the right Beacon can be quite a challenge. The more you work yourself into the topic the more questions and requirements will arise. Therefore it is recommended to narrow down the options to a few specific models with the help of specific questions.
Close attention should be paid on the use case in general, the requirements about the housing as well as the durability of the Beacon.

Shapes and circuit boards
blukiis are available in many different forms and sizes – small, big, round or angular.
The three smallest models have the suffix “Go” in their name, which signals that they can be combined with the blukii Wearables and therefore carried around on person. In general are the forms depending on the batteries used. That’s why the blukii Tower 1600 looks like a real Beacon on a coast. In addition there are squared or angular housings that offer a big surface for adhesives as well as the option to mount them with screws.
Besides the battery the circuit boards are influencing the form of the housing as well. At blukii we have two basic circuit boards – the small on has a diameter of only 22 mm, while the diameter of the bigger one amounts to 32 mm. Accordingly this circuit board offers more space for add-ons, but especially for the bigger Bluetooth chip and a more powerful antenna.

How long does your blukii Smart Beacon have to last? Is it just for a short term project or for a long term operation? The lifetime of a Beacon is dependent on its battery. We already have an eye on subsequent costs, such as an exchange of batteries or whole modules, even before your project has started. We are always looking for the perfect solution, which means that you can forget about your blukii Smart Beacon as they do their job – quiet and reliable.
Our blukii Smart Beacon are advertising iBeacon and/or Eddystone
iBeacon has been introduced by Apple in 2013, as a proprietary standard that was used to enable indoor navigation in the first place. In the meantime there are many more different applications possible with the popular protocol.
Eddystone is an open-source protocol developed by Google. With Eddystone it is possible to address people on their smart devices without them having a specially developed app. All the user needs is the Google Chrome App which is installed on Android devices by default.
Unfortunately the service is currently not available for the iOS Chrome App.
