Launching Our New Tough Beacon, Designed For Outdoor Use

10 February 2015

The Industry’s first IP68-rated heavy duty Beacon / iBeacon!

  • Shatter-resistant
  • Waterproof up to 10 m
  • Works from -20C (-4 F) - +60C (140F)
  • Anti-static
  • UV-resistant
  • 5 - 7 week production lead time


The Tough Beacon TB15-1 is Kontakt.io’s newest beacon. Created using the same award-winning Bluetooth LE smart beacon technology as our normal beacon, the Tough Beacon is encased in a special polycarbonate blend that makes it, well, tougher than the average beacon. Virtually shatter-proof (as long as you don’t drive a tank over it), completely waterproof, hermetically sealed, anti-static, UV resistant, and operable through a wide range of temperatures, the Tough Beacon TB15-1 is ready for all of your outdoor, extreme environment proximity needs.
Due to the fact that the Tough Beacon needs to be built and configured in one factory and then shipped to a special facility to have its case fused around it with microwaves to seal it forever, the lead time for Tough Beacon is 5 - 7 weeks from order to delivery. Also, as the case is sealed, the battery is not user-replacable. 
If you’re looking for the best in beacons--now outdoors!--then drop us a line at kontakt@kontakt.io and we’ll be happy to talk, or order it now!
