blukii Features

All beacons that use this mode can only be configured by authorized persons (authenticated via their login) with the blukii Configurator app.

blukii Smart Beacons allow encrypted transmission of the send packets (Secure Beacon) to protect against the use and imitation of location information by unauthorized third parties.

In this case, the iBeacon signal and the hardware ID (MAC address) are alienated according to a secure procedure and changed at regular time intervals.

blukii Smart Beacons contain an advanced feature to send packages in the event case (for example, a button-push or time-based).

iBeacon was launched by Apple in 2013 and was primarily intended as a proprietary standard for indoor location. The standard is based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and is already supported from iOS 5 or Android version 4.3. In the meantime, many other solutions have emerged alongside indoor navigation, from proximity marketing and museum guides to asset tracking to smart office solutions and much more.
