So, I have an idea for an internal application to be used by our department which is a fairly large office with a maze of cubes and a front desk not attached to the office. The space is good to use beacons on all 4 walls and cover the entire area. My question is, can we have an application where we store a persons device (in this case, an iPhone so we know who is who) and be able to determine their location in the office and notify them that someone is at the front desk for them if they are within the 4 walls? I’m envisioning an app that shows the dots on the map, but also has a list of users and a green or red dot for in range or out of range. Is this possible at all or am I completely off track before purchasing?
It is definitely feasible. You could do that by simply listing location when people are: and then it could use our original SDK. Or if you want to have a map with locations of people represented in real time, then I’d suggest playing with the Indoor Location SDK: http://estimote.com/indoor/. It will probably be more complex though.
Additionally, please check out Robin: it’s a smart office platform based on our beacons. Maybe your problem is already solved https://robinpowered.com/
Thanks, I’ll definitely take a look at the SDK and get my order going then. Robin looks pretty cool, but we have touchscreens already that tie in with outlook on our conference rooms, so maybe we jumped the gun with those. I see they’ll have integration soon, so maybe that could replace it. Only thing I didn’t notice would be a notification feature to ping someone if in the area.
Just found your request on the forum.

Uncorkd: https://www.uncorkd.biz/ - We developed a solution to prevent stealing of iPad menu devices from local restaurants. We placed a lot of Estimote beacons around the closed contours indoor of the each restaurant and track each iPad movements. In case if device left contour we run alarm at the admin side with specified iPad ID and location of where he left contour.
Let me know if you are interested and still look for help. I hope we can help you with the delivery of such solution.
We also can discuss your project together during short Skype conversation. Be free to contact me with details below.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.
