Naperville, Illinois - Twocanoes Labs announces the release of Geohopper Beacon, a location-based messaging beacon package for iPhone. Geohopper Beacon includes the iBeacon-compatible hardware device, power adapter and Geohopper 2.0 for iOS app. Geohopper Beacons can be placed in the home, garage, office or anywhere to automatically send notifications when arriving or leaving.
Geohopper Beacons unite Apple's iBeacon technology and proximity-based notifications in a single easy-to-use bundle. Using Geohopper 2.0 for iOS, a single tap configures the beacon which then sends notifications to your selected contacts when you enter or exit the beacon location. No additional setup or maintenance is required.
"We are excited to offer location messaging with beacons that is simple and secure to set up" said Twocanoes founder Timothy Perfitt. "Geohopper is a bundle of beacon goodness."
