Estimote Beacon is a tiny computer that broadcasts radio signal. Your smartphone can pick up and interpret this signal. Powered by a coin battery, it has an ARM processor, memory, Bluetooth Smart module, and temperature and motion sensors.
When an eligible mobile app enters the signal's region, corresponding actions can be triggered. You need Bluetooth enabled for the magic to happen.

Estimote Beacons are compatible with both major BLE beacon protocols: iBeacon (by Apple) and Eddystone (by Google).
Estimote Stickers use our own protocol we called Nearable. You can read more about it elsewhere.
