Build apps for the physical world and innovate by creating an online-offline bridge with iBeacon, Bluetooth Mesh, wireless sensors and indoor location technologies.

Choose the best SDK for your app

At Estimote, we provide complete Software Development Kits (SDKs) to get you quickly started building context-aware apps. We also equip you with software tools and APIs allowing you to distribute your real-world apps securely and at scale.

Presence authentication, proximity marketing, and automation

If you find that GPS technology is not accurate enough for your indoor or outdoor applications then choose our Estimote Proximity SDK. It is optimized for reliable entry and exit events and it will allow you to authenticate presence, send contextual notifications, display proximity-based content, or create software automations.

Real-time asset tracking and wireless sensor networks

If you want to track your assets as they move from place to place and collect additional sensor data, such as their temperature or vibrations, use Estimote SDK with the telemetry protocol.

Personalized digital signage and interactive digital displays

If you want to display personalized content to people visiting your venues, try Estimote Mirror SDK. It will scan for signals from people's phones and will display contextual content on nearby screens.

Seamlessly track assets and vehicles indoor and outdoor

If you have key assets that move from one location to another, use our programmable LTE Beacon to precisely locate them both indoors and outdoors. You can use JavaScript and our Web IDE to create your own IoT apps.

Compare beacons

Here are the main differences. All of them leverage the same, intelligent firmware, but their lifetime, form-factor or details differ depending on the application.

Prototype, test and deploy with us

Build your solution from concept to scale with all the necessary tools and help from Estimote experts. Our team of experienced engineers and product people will guide you through the deployment process.

Proof of Concept

During this phase we will work with you to verify your project hypothesis and test your solution with a small group of users. We will provide you with all the necessary hardware and software tools.

  • Validate your project idea
  • Select the right infrastructure for your project (including custom hardware & software )
  • Build working prototype with our engineers

Pilot

Once the PoC is ready we will help you test your refined idea on real world users to see how the solution is performing in practice. We will help you run a pilot in a few locations.

  • Perform initial beacon installation
  • Test not only the experience, but also the deployment operations
  • Design the overall architecture of your system

Scale

Once the solution is ready we will help you scale it to all your locations. You will use our enterprise fleet management tools to deploy and maintain the infrastructure across all your facilities.

  • Develop a deployment plan & tools for the full roll-out
  • Install beacons in all your locations
  • Manage your beacons fleet with our APIs & cloud infrastructure

Try our Software Platform!

If you are done prototyping and plan to deploy your apps across hundreds of locations our SaaS subscription is right for you. We've built the features, applications, and RESTful APIs you'll need across your project life cycle.

For smooth installation use our Deployment Tools to configure and deploy beacons in bulk. Once your beacons are installed use our Management RESTful API and Cloud Dashboard to monitor your fleet or update them remotely. Next, use our Analytics RESTful API to derive valuable location insights from your data or activate Infrastructure Sharing, our built-in provisioning system to securely share your beacon network with selected third-party apps.
