Bleu Station Series 100, 200 and 300 beacons provide solutions to meet any implementation requirements for beacon deployment. Bleu Station beacons are installed in thousands of locations in retail, hospitality and industrial sectors. Bleu Station beacons are available for purchase now from the Twocanoes Store.

Features

Apple introduced iBeacon technology in iOS 7 for iPhone and iPad. iBeacon is Apple-licensed technology implemented in small low-energy Bluetooth devices that broadcast to nearby iOS devices. The iBeacon standard allows the iPhone to distinguish from among many different detected beacons, making it an ideal mechanism to display relevant information to customers at the right time and place.

Bleu Station beacons fully support any app or solution that is compatible with Apple's iBeacon performance specifications. However, it doesn't end there. We provide the software that configures the beacons to help you deploy quickly, regardless of the size of the enterprise. Twocanoes also provides the support you need to integrate Bleu Station beacons into your existing infrastructure.

Power

Series 100 and 200 Bleu Station beacons are powered over USB and ship with an AC adapter to power the Bleu Station indefinitely. Series 300 Bleu Station beacons are powered by 4 AA batteries and will operate to iBeacon performance specifications for 7 months continuously or for over a year in power saving mode. All Bleu Station beacons operate at specifications defined by Apple for iBeacons which ensures that Bleu Station beacons will always work with iBeacon-compatible devices and apps.

Over-the-Air Updates

Bleu Station Series 200 and 300 are ready for over-the-air firmware updates, making these beacons future-proof and easy to upgrade as new features become available. For developers, Twocanoes Labs' provides the Bleu Station SDK to implement over-the-air firmware updates in your own apps. All of this adds up confidence that your beacon deployments will last for years to come.

Status Indicator and Reset Switch

Bleu Station Series 200 and 300 beacons contain a dual-color LED to indicate mode of operation which makes setup, configuration and troubleshooting easier than ever. A reset button on the back will restore all default settings immediately.

Data Security

Bleu Station beacons come standard with the most advanced beacon security available. Each beacon can be configured with its own password, and the password is secured so that even if a device is lost or stolen, the password cannot be read out of the beacon. Whenever settings are saved to the beacon, the connection is fully encrypted. After the beacon is in operational mode, the admin service is shut down to prevent any connections to further secure the beacon. All of this adds up to peace of mind knowing that your beacons will remain fully in your control.

Physical Security

All Bleu Station beacons can be physically secured to prevent theft, power disconnection, resetting or shutting down the beacon. See product pages for Series 100, Series 200 and Series 300.

Backward Compatibility

Bleu Station beacons are fully compatible with iBeacon-compatible applications and services as well as with each other. If you mix and match Series 100, 200 and 300 beacons, everything will continue to work. We also don’t require activation from a cloud service to make our beacons operational, and provide all the parts you need to configure and deploy beacons.

Easy Deployment

All the software you need to setup, configure, and deploy Bleu Station beacons is provided by Twocanoes Labs. Integrate our software into your own apps or use our off-the-shelf beacon tools to configure Bleu Stations to your environment. The Bleu Station beacons make this process even easier. By integrating our Bleu Station SDK, quickly deploy beacons with automatic detection and configuration within your own app.

No Hidden Fees

A huge benefit to using Bleu Station Beacons is that there are no monthly fees to deploy our beacons. We don’t require activation from a cloud service to make our beacons operational, and all the parts you need to configure and deploy beacons is provided with our SDK.
