A part of the Internet of Things (The Physical Web), a beacon is a small Bluetooth device that continually emits a specific webpage URL.
When a phone is within range of a beacon, users who have downloaded the BeaconSage app will see a notice on their smartphones that a beacon is near. When a user selects the beacon on their smartphones, a web page appears on the phone’s screen.
Yes, BeaconSage works with both Android and iOS operating systems.
The BeaconSage App allows you to discover nearby beacons and beacon pages on your mobile device. BeaconSage the service is the online platform used to build beacon pages that are visible in the BeaconSage App.
If you have a mobile device running Android OS 5.0 or higher and bluetooth enabled, you don’t need the BeaconSage app to receive beacon notifications. If your mobile device operates on iOS or any version of Android earlier than 5.0, then you will need a beacon detection app. We recommend using BeaconSage.
