Kontakt.io was founded in 2013 with the goal of helping the visually impaired navigate public spaces more easily, and experience cultural wonders with the same appreciation as anyone else.
We developed something that you would call today a proximity solution—but it was months before Apple released the iBeacon profile using Bluetooth Low Energy. That’s how our innovation began. Since then we’ve adopted technology like iBeacon, Eddystone, and more into our smart hardware system, and we continue to push the borders of what’s possible with bluetooth proximity devices.
Today, we’re a leading global provider of proximity technologies. We continue our initial mission to make the world a bit better place, by making objects and devices smarter so they can enhance the quality of everyone’s life. We keep exploring the technology and pushing its boundaries further than anyone would have imagined.
We’ve developed a couple of types of beacon hardware and the world’s most secure software, but that’s not all! Seeing the potential of the technology and already working on next solutions, we must say—the best in beacons is yet to come. And we aim to be a big part of it.
