What are Beacons and what is BluuBeam?
Q- What is BluuBeam?
A- BluuBeam is a combination of software and hardware that takes all of the complications out of using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. BLE is sometimes called iBeacon technology. In a nutshell a BLE beacon is a Bluetooth transmitter that broadcasts it's location. Any mobile device running the BluuBeam app can detect a BluuBeam beacon (we call them Beams) when they come within range. Once the mobile device detects a Beam it will display whatever message you've created in the BluuBeam Admin Console.
Q- What about privacy?
A- Privacy isn't an issue because we don't collect any personal information and your patrons would need to "opt in" by downloading the BluuBeam App.
Q- What if your not looking at your phone?
A- BluuBeam will trigger a background notification when it detects a new Beam. This notification resets every 24 hours so you don't keep getting the same notifications.
