If you are integrating Bleu Station into your iOS app, the best place to start is by purchasing our Bleu Starter Kit. It includes three Bleu Stations, integration support to help assess requirements for a beacon-enabled solution, access to sample code and our SDK. Email us more information.
Sample Applications and Source Code
This is sample code designed for use with Bleu Stations by Twocanoes. Some functions may work with any standard iBeacon.
Bleu Locate demonstrates how to use CoreLocation to for region monitoring and ranging. Sample code for showing different web views based on proximity to an iBeacon.
Bleu Settings uses libbleu to discover Bleu Stations in range and to read and write the settings of the station. This project does not include the libbleu files. Those files must be copied to the source file for the project to compile.
See our public github repository.
Beacon Enabled Apps
Check out the amazing Geohopper, a beacon-enabled app available now in the app store. Trigger actions based on proximity using Bleu Station beacons and jump start your learning about the capabilities of Bleu Stations.
Bleu Setup for iOS
One-step configuration of Bleu Stations with Bleu Setup for iOS. Attach the Bleu Station to power and it will appear automatically Bleu Setup. Set a password, a few identifiers, and it’s ready to go.
After setup, the Bleu Station will immediately start broadcasting over Bluetooth and is ready to use in your app. For fine-grained proximity control, the Bleu Setup app provides additional advanced settings for tuning Bleu Stations for any environment.
Our SDK includes the ability to integrate setup of the Bleu Station hardware right into your app. Build hardware configuration capabilities into existing point-of-sale, kiosk, or other types of onsite apps. Integrated hardware setup drives down support costs for native apps and ensures that onsite staff can deploy Bleu Stations quickly and easily.
Zero Touch Deployment
Installing a handful of iBeacon compatible devices is relatively straightforward, but provisioning and deploying thousands of devices can be costly and error-prone. Bleu drives down the cost of deployment though Zero Touch and Zero Tech deployment. Zero Touch deployment means that the person deploying the Bleu Station simply plugs in the Bleu Station, and the Bleu Station is automatically configured by an iOS device within range.
