BC127 supports iBeacon
With iBeacon support for the BC127, customers now have access to new hardware and also software and tutorial to add new exciting features based on the proximity of an IOS device to their BC127 based accessory.
Cambridge, 14th February 2014 –Blue Creation announced today that BC127 with Melody 5.5 supports iBeacon. iBeacon will allow customers to develop exciting new functionalities based on proximity of an iOS device to their accessories.
iBeacon is a new technology that extends Location Services in iOS. Your iOS device can alert apps when you approach or leave a location with an iBeacon. In addition to monitoring location, an app can estimate your proximity to an iBeacon (for example, a display or checkout counter in a retail store). Instead of using latitude and longitude to define the location, iBeacon uses a Bluetooth low energy signal, which iOS devices detect.
Paul Roberts, Roadmap Manager at BlueCreation said: 'We're excited to see this implemented so early as part of our standard BC127 module and releases. This should enable existing customers using the BC127 to be the first to add these exciting and differentiating features to their products'.
BC127 with Melody 5.5 is being released to a selected number of customers. It allows to easily advertise iBeacon services and is released with Melody Smart iOS v5.5 to allow for quick and ease of implementation.
