About nRF Beacon

The nRF Beacon application lets you explore the full range of possibilities for beacons using Bluetooth Low Energy technology. The application has been designed to demonstrate all features of the nRF8122 Bluetooth LE Beacon Kit. It works partially with beacons from other manufacturers as well.

The application allows you register actions that will be triggered when specified event occur. Currently a beacon may silent the phone, open an application, open a website in a browser, show predefined information about an object (Mona Lisa painting) or play an alarm on one of the 4 events: beacon region has been entered or exited, a beacon is near or very close.

On Android 4.3 and 4.4.x the application requires nRF Beacon Service application to be installed on the device. It may be downloaded from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=no.nordicsemi.android.beacon.service.
Since Android 5 (Lollipop) the service is build into the application and is using native API. The nRF Beacon Service application may be removed from the phone.
