Can I add additional zones for a limited time?

Yes you can. Each of our subscription plans allows you to increase zones for a limited amount of time. Ideal if you need to increase coverage for events, holiday offers like Black Friday. When the event is finished you can remove these additional Zones.

Do I need an App to work with the platform and beacons?

Can you support one-off projects?

Yes we can. If you have a bespoke requirement we can set up the campaign, pre-configure the beacons, install the beacons and deliver analytics. Contact for more information.

Can I use other manufacturer's beacons on your platform?

Yes, however you will need to reconfigure those beacons with ProximiPRO’s unique UUID.


How does an App user receive content via a beacon?

Your smartphone requires Bluetooth to be on and an App installed which is capable of scanning for beacons. When the App is in range of a beacon it will connect to the platform and download the contents assigned to the beacons.

What is a zone?

Zones can be either beacons or a GeoLocations (also known as Geofencing). If an individual is within the broadcast range of a beacon they will receive the content via a compatible App. With GeoLocation, an individual will receive content when they enter the GPS coordinated of that zone.

How does the GeoLocation feature work?

You can create zones using longitude and latitude and then set the broadcast radius via the platform. The App uses the GPS of the Smartphone to scan if a user is physically in the radius of the zone. The platform will then send the content to the App on the user’s smartphone.

How easy is it to create a campaign?

Very simple. Our set up wizard will help you get your first campaign live in only a few minutes.

What type of content can I deliver?

The platform allows you to deliver Web Content by adding a URL or add your own custom HTML. You can also add an image, ideal if you want to show coupons, promotions or information. There is also an option to add a Video link to Youtube or Vimeo.

Are your beacons compatible with iBeacon or Eddystone?

Yes, all of our beacons are. You can set the beacon to broadcast in either protocol or both at the same time.

What is the difference between iBeacon & Eddystone?

iBeacon is a beacon protocol created by Apple™ and Eddystone is a beacon protocol created by Google™.

How does the notifications feature work?

Are discounts available for larger orders?

What is the broadcast range of your beacons?

The broadcast range of the beacons is typically between 30 to 100m in open range depending on the model.

What is the battery life of the beacons?

The battery life varies between 6 to over 48 months and depends of the beacon model, broadcast rate of the beacon and whether you are broadcasting both iBeacon and Eddystone simultaneously.
