iBeacon are used to validate offers and help iOS devices to accurately identify their position and location in indoor spaces.
The technology is based on the standard Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) protocol. As the name suggests, the Low Energy variant of Bluetooth is extremely power efficient. An iPhone’s battery drain should be less than 1% because of nearby beacons.
How to utilize an iBeacon for validation:
- Order iBeacon through our app or website.
- Upon delivery, allow 3 business days, turn on the iBeacon.
- Open the app and assign one or multiple iBeacon to POS.
- Scan the iBeacon signals.
- Battery: ~24 months life, easy to replace.
