Press Release:

Live Beacon is a small, battery-powered, cloud-controlled device that transmits web content and notifications to nearby smartphones.

It broadcasts any web page, video or web app up to 30 meters (100 feet) and is easy to update using the included Cloud Portal.

With the free Live Beacon app, your iOS or Android smartphone receives a notification whenever there's a beacon nearby, and automatically changes content as you move from beacon-to-beacon.

Live Beacon makes it possible for anyone to send location-specific information — without a single line of code — and create awesome iBeacon experiences, such as:

Information Points: Replace brochures, pamphlets and other printed materials with beacons that transmit online content. Save time and money printing, be more environmentally friendly, and never run out of copies.

Self-guided Tours: Create multimedia tours for cities, museums, galleries and attractions by placing beacons near points of interest. Visitors get to use their own smartphones and tablets rather than clunky handsets.

Games & Activities: Make fun treasure hunts to keep participants active and entertained. Play to their competitive spirit by 'gamifying' the real world — gotta find 'em all!

Loyalty & Rewards: Build a digital loyalty card for your customers. Don't expect them to carry around yet another card; instead they simply tap the beacon at the counter to collect stamps.

Automation & IoT: Simplify access to any device with a web interface. For example, open the Live Beacon app next to your home router to see Internet usage; skipping the login page and going straight to the bit that's useful.

Live Beacon is launching very soon on Kickstarter. You can visit livebeacon.com to keep up-to-date, and sign up for a chance to win a free twin pack before anyone else!
