What are Bluetooth Low Energy iBeacons?
iBeacons are small wireless modules that can be placed inside stores, museums, hotels, restaurants, and sports arenas. These tiny modules can be programmed to generate hyper-local Bluetooth low energy waves for micro indoor ranges, or ranges up to 250 feet. By utilizing an SDK combined with iBeacons, Bluetooth waves can detect and communicate with applications, triggering useful information, notifications, alerts, or updates.
