Apple has again bombarded the techno industry with its invention of ibeacon and captured the domain of Bluetooth Low Energy devices. The prestigious company is known for providing inventive technology and generation-next smart applications to progress the experimental biz for gadget lovers. Apple’s technology has introduced ibeacon, a least hyped product that was released last year with potentiality in location, connectivity and ubiquity.
If we look for the smart phones, they use GPS and wifi together to detect your location. But unfortunately GPS network fails to provide results indoors and wifi alone is also not so précised. Therefore, to bridge the gap, ibeacons are introduced empowered by BLE chips. These chips are comparatively cheap and are able to detect customer’s position even inside the store to a specific distance and smart device. Every beacon consists of a unique ID that transmits radio signals to locate nearby devices. Once the smart device recognizes the beacon’s signal, numerous actions can be triggered like push alerts, product details and interactions within an application.
Kontakt.io beacon is a similar instrument featuring the effectivity of ibeacon. The BLE apps get installed within an hour in a very simple process and starts working immediately after installation. You can develop your own app for Kontakt micro location, or may just add proximity computing functionality to an already existing application using API as its access is free. Kontakt.io beacon can be used with every popular mobile platform. The best part of Kontakt’s beacon is its back-end; the Kontakt.io CMS is the web directory that allows you to control correctly and precisely what happens when someone gets in adjacent to your beacons. Esatech Systems, a software company based in Kolkata, India is providing leading-edge solutions for companies in Mobile Apps development.
