Estimote – Real-World Context For Your Apps
Stick their tiny beacons in any location or to any object to create new, contextually rich mobile experiences. Estimote Beacons and Stickers are small wireless sensors that you can attach to any location or object. They broadcast tiny radio signals which your smartphone can receive and interpret, unlocking micro-location and contextual awareness. With the Estimote SDK, apps on your smartphone are able to understand their proximity to nearby locations and objects, recognizing their type, ownership, approximate location, temperature and motion. Use this data to build a new generation of magical mobile apps that connect the real world to your smart device. Estimote Beacons are certified iBeacon™ compatible and ready for deployment at scale. How does it work: a) Estimote Beacons and Stickers are tiny computers. They have a powerful ARM processor, memory, Bluetooth Smart module, and temperature and motion sensors. Powered by a coin battery, they broadcast radio signals through built-in antennas; b) Smart devices in range receive those signals and compatible installed apps can then respond. The exact form of that response – whether a notification or another action – is up to you; our platform is fully flexible; and c) Estimote’s SDK and Cloud tie everything together by granting apps full access to the metadata, including beacon ownership, object type, and precise location. They also enable security and other services on top of the beacons. This will be added to eCommerce Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
