Estimote Beacons – iBeacon-style Bluetooth Smart (LE) sensors

Estimote Beacon is a cheap and small, Bluetooth Smart (Low Energy) device, sometimes also called a ‘mote’. When placed in a physical space, it broadcasts tiny radio signals around itself.

Think about it as a very small lighthouse. Smartphones that are in range are able to ‘hear’ these signals and estimate their location very precisely, as well as communicate with the beacon to exchange data and information.

Apple™, Google™ and Nokia™ have announced recently native support of BLE devices with their latest mobile operating systems and devices.
