How the whole Kontakt.io platform
works together with Cloud Beacon:

Cloud Beacon acts as the “manager” for your Bluetooth Beacons, and maintains an active internet connect via WiFi. You now have complete control and access to your entire beacon fleet, using only your Web Panel account.

  • Cloud Beacons readily integrate into your existing beacon deployment. Install them just like any other beacon, then let them manage your fleet.
  • Cloud Beacons can “talk to” your regular Bluetooth beacons – allowing unpatrolled access, management, and control over your entire fleet.
  • Cloud Beacons can still “talk to” your beacons even when in a locked down or non-connectable state (e.g. in full iBeacon mode).

Just a few of the possibilities Cloud Beacon
unlocks for you

  • Data Harvesting Enabled

    Cloud Beacons can send data as well as receive it – it can also store information and upload it to the internet via WiFi. This enables you to collect information from all mobile users in your venue, giving you a more complete picture of what is going on in your monitored locations.

  • More Complete Data

    Cloud Beacons can collect anonymous MAC addresses from any mobile device – with or without active internet, and with or without active Bluetooth. This means you can collect anonymous data from anyone walking through your venues, as long as the WiFi is turned on.

  • Better Customer Profiles

    By collecting uniquely identifiable MAC addresses, you can now build more accurate customer profiles of people interacting in your venues. By using actionable data gained while people go about their regular business, you gain a new level of insight into real customer behaviors.

  • Simple Fleet Management

    You can now remotely update your entire fleet (even Bluetooth Beacons) using your Web Panel account or our robust API. As long as your Bluetooth Beacons are in range of one Cloud Beacon, you can update the entire deployment in minutes with a single click – anywhere in the world, at any time.

None of the above is possible with “regular” Bluetooth Smart Beacons
