Kuwaiti school uses Lightcurb iBeacon platform & Estimote iBeacons



A short video of a teacher in a Kuwaiti school demonstrating how they are using Estimote iBeacons with the Lightcurb iBeacon platform to push information to parents as they arrive at different sections of the school, or when they attend parent-teacher interviews.

The video shows the notifications working on iOS and Android devices. The platform & app service Lightcurb, supports both via its free ibeacon-scanning app and manager platform.
