Release Date: Thursday, January 8, 2015
Naperville, Illinois - Twocanoes Labs today announced the launch of their complete line of Bleu Proximity Beacon products and solutions to be presented at the upcoming NRF 2015 Expo in New York. Twocanoes Labs offers a complete line of Bleu Proximity beacon solutions designed for any deployment environment. Bleu Station beacons are equipped with physical and data security features, extensive deployment tools, an admin SDK and options for AC or battery power.
Bleu Station beacons are available for deployment now with upgradable firmware for the future. Twocanoes Labs also offers hardware and integration support for developers building their own solutions. Twocanoes Labs provides deployment tools as well as access to the Bleu Station Admin SDK for integrating beacons into existing apps with no monthly activation costs.
All Bleu Station beacons are compatible with iBeacon-enabled apps, including Bleu Meetings, Geohopper, Bleu JSS, Bleu Setup and other apps from Twocanoes Software & Labs, available now in the App Store.
Latest in the Bleu Station lineup is the 300 Series, an all-weather battery powered beacon with capacity to operate for seven months in "always on" mode and over a year in battery saver mode. The all-weather Series 300 beacon is powered by 4 AA batteries. The Series 300 Beacon builds on its predecessors, the Series 100 and 200 Bleu Station Beacons, with road-proven reliability, performance and security. The Series 300 Beacon features a mountable, weather-resistant enclosure.
The Series 300 Beacon also features a built-in mounting bracket and tamper resistant housing, preventing the beacon from being stolen, opened, reset or disabled. The sealed housing allows the Beacon to be placed in challenging environments safely and securely. The Series 300 Bleu Station Beacon will be available Spring 2015 at the Twocanoes website and through retail channels.
Twocanoes Labs also announced new security bracket accessories for the Series 100 and 200 Bleu Station Beacons. The security brackets discourage tampering or theft and secures the beacon and accompanying power supply from removal.
The Bleu Station security bracket attaches to the wall plate of standard North American AC socket outlets and may be secured to power strips or other fixed objects. Security brackets for the Bleu Station Series 100 and 200 devices will be available late February 2015 at the Twocanoes website and through retail channels.
Twocanoes Labs is also partnering with LNL Systems to integrate beacons into their retail-oriented communications solutions to automate the smart sales floor with the industry's first full range of iBeacons, web service, and proximity apps. Retail associates automatically receive notifications via two-way radios when customers are near Bleu Station Beacons, reducing costs and bringing customer service to a new level.
"We are excited to introduce our full line of proximity solutions to retail and other industries looking to engage with and bring value to their customers in a thrilling new way," says Tim Perfitt, founder and CEO of Twocanoes Labs. "And in our partnership with LNL Systems, our proximity solutions are part of a modern and exciting advancement in sales floor technology. Retailers and their customers are going to love it."
