Example text

Monitoring rules communicate to an application when a device is either in range of an iBeacon or set of iBeacons, or when the device has moved out of range. Wireless signal strength can be jumpy and shift dramatically, even when the transmitter and receiver remain in the same physical space. Therefore, many iBeacon receivers will implement hysteresis to smooth out (or calm) monitoring alerts. Notifications that a device has entered or left an area will happen within a few seconds, but they are not guaranteed to be immediate.

Info connections between devices, bidirectional communications are needed, and iBeacon is unable to act as a broker. iBeacons cannot directly interact with the mobile device and, at best, they are triggers for other applications. However, due to the lack of direct interaction and the simplicity of the protocol, an iBeacon also cannot: Send a message to a mobile device An iBeacon’s transmission consists of three numbers to uniquely identify what the device is near. To translate those three numbers into an action or a message, an application needs to be involved.

A beacon’s advertisement includes no descriptive text or mapping. Translation between the beacon’s transmissions and any actions are done entirely within an application on the receiver, even if the 1 One of the many organized efforts to quickly build applications with iBeacon is the February 2014 hackathon held in San Francisco: Bring Home the Beacon Hackathon. 2 To add interactivity based on an iBeacon, an application needs to query its own local storage or a web service to learn more. By itself, an iBea‐ con is not capable of anything beyond simple broadcast messages.
