Download “iBeacons Bible 1.0”

iBeaconsiBeacon technology allows precise, contextual interaction/engagement and indoor geo-location for Apple and Android mobile devices.

I’ve been working on this valuable technology for a couple of months, and I am very impressed: there are a lot of valuable potential business applications – especially in Retail, Marketing, Logistics, etc.

I’d like to share my knowledge about iBeacons, so I am freely releasing my iBeacons Bible 1.0:  it’s an introduction to iBeacons technology (both from a business  and a technical point of view) that includes also many Use Cases (and much more!).

    Excellent document, very readable and clear. You enthusiasm for retail applications is understandable but is the need to download apps on a per retailer basis, a tad intrusive. If i visit a major mall there may be well over 100 stores, all looking for me to engage with them. Push technology is potentially intrusive – the pull technology of NFC offers choice and preference maybe? So horses for courses, compatible rather than competitive?

    • Hi Barry, thank you for your comments.
      I agree with you, there are (at least) two major issues with iBeacon technology: fragmentation (an App for each retailer, plus Apps from specific brands – “How many App do I have to install???”) and push-notification “bombing” (if I shop in a Mall, after receiving the fourth notification, I surely switch off Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, whatever…).

      The solution?
      Retailers must (MUST!) act responsably, with good-sense and respect for shoppers.

  4. Hey Andy,

    thanks,

  5. Thanks Andy Share the information about ibeacons bible….

    • Hey Andy

      Read your ibeacon bible back in March and we exchanged some brief observations. Much moving on since then as we have built our own version of ibeacon – we call it Blu-Beam – and the one thing we have learned is the need for Security, as you yourself have highlighted. Hacking and harvesting are both potentially damaging to out there beacons and this video by the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-28488155) just serves to emphasise the problem. In this case, it was just a music overwrite, but it could be much more mischievous and damaging to our retailer!!
      If you like, I will highlight some non retail applications we are being presented with, to broaden the discussion.

      Keep up the good work
