Ifinity Beacon is Bluetooth Low Energy proximity sensor transmiting a universally unique identifier picked up by a compatible app or operating system. The identifier can then be looked up over the internet to determine the device’s physical location or trigger an action on the device such as push notification or payments at the point of sale.
An beacon deployment consists of one or more beacon devices that transmit their own unique identification number to the local area. Software on a receiving device may then look up the beacon and perform various functions, such as notifying the user. Receiving devices can also connect to the beacons to retrieve values from beacon’s GATT (generic attribute profile) service. Beacons do not push notifications to receiving devices (other than their own identity), nor can track users.
