The BeaconStream's overall goal is to make every consumer's mobile device a virtual sales person for every business and industry on the planet. It is obvious that a technology like this will be exponentially beneﬁcial to even the smallest mom-and-pop shop but in order to effectively use BeaconStream to its fullest potential just follow these practices.
Place beacons strategically: In order for a business to effectively use BeaconStream in a strategic manner, the proprietor must place their beacons or iOS devices in 'areas of interest'. By 'areas of interest' we mean areas that see high foot trafﬁc, high customer attention or sporadic sales. This allows the business owners to receive valuable analytics and to reorganize and prioritize their businesses' items, goods and services so that they are easily accessible and more sellable.
Up-sell successfully: As a business, you don't want to be too pushy with a high-priced product or service when a consumer may know what they want. BeaconStream ﬁxes that problem by eliminating the pushy sales pitch and streaming more information. Our application allows you to attach digital information and data to anything and any section in your store, allowing your consumers to read the beneﬁts of a better product on their mobile device allows them to realize the higher priced item is more reliable without bias.
Cross promote: For example, a business can place a beacon near the men’s pants department, then create custom content on BeaconStream for a related item in the store, such as leather belts. BeaconStream can immediately push that leather belt content to consumers who are in the men's department. Now, using the connection of pants to belts, your consumer is subliminally thinking of purchasing a belt.
Broaden your brand: In order to optimize their sales, many businesses have gone through a branding phase far before they download the BeaconStream application. Nonetheless, BeaconStream allows you to brand your business in a way that has not been achieved before. BeaconStream will grant businesses the control and capability to share their unique brand personality and image with their potential customers, without an intermediary.
Protect privacy: Most shoppers do not like to be bothered while shopping. Potential consumers come to the store with a predetermined focus, and some pushy salespeople often turn-off potential consumers. With BeaconStream, business owners can subtly and successfully convey their message. We view BeaconStream as the optimal sales enhancement tool for your business and sales strategy. It will allow your employees more freedom to focus on other tasks within the company.
Eliminate human-error: Another perk of BeaconStream allows businesses to eliminate human-error from their company. Businesses will no longer have to train employees on in-depth specifics of a new product or the ingredients in a daily special. BeaconStream allows business owners to communicate with consumers without a possibly undertrained middle or salesperson. Information straight from the business owners "mouth" will be streamed to the consumer’s smartphone.
What is iBeacon?
iBeacon is the name of an Apple trademarked technology for an indoor positioning system that runs on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), also known as Bluetooth Smart. Apple calls this technology a new class of low-powered, low-cost transmitters that can notify nearby devices of their presence. They can also be used by the Android operating system as well. The technology enables an iOS device or other hardware to send push notifications to iOS devices in close proximity.

Beacons have been used for hundreds of years as simple sources of navigation. Today, an electronic beacon is a device which marks a fixed location and allows direction finding technology to identify relative bearing and direction to the beacon.
What is BeaconStream?
BeaconStream is a proximity based mobile marketing application for businesses and consumers using Apple’s latest iBeacon and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies. It enables businesses to send - and consumers to receive - notiﬁcations, data, coupons, promotions and videos to mobile phones using these technologies. The BeaconStream application enables an iOS device or any other BLE devices to send timely notiﬁcations to mobile phones in close proximity (up to 100 feet).

BeaconStream is designed to generate unique customer analytics for any type of business and create innovative customer-business relationships.

Why are the business views and customer views different?
Upon registration, any potential BeaconStream user must acknowledge and inform whether they are a 'consumer' or a 'business' BeaconStream account. The difference between these two accounts is that the 'business' account enables the application to transform your mobile device into a transmitting beacon, allowing you to create custom content such as the push notifications seen above. A 'consumer' account is an account that is solely used by shoppers. Every day people who are looking for the best deals and newest information. Consumer accounts cannot transmit and therefore do not create original content to push to other mobile devices. To put it simply: the businesses are the senders and customers are the receivers.
I am unable to track beacons. What do I do?
Simply disable and enable the Bluetooth on your device. This will allow your device to pick up beacons in range. If that does not fix the problem then you may need to consult your wireless carrier or your local Apple store.
How do I know my beacons are functioning?
After registering and re-registering your devices Bluetooth connectivity and opening the BeaconStream application, if you are still not detecting a local beacon then your beacons may be inoperable. Try the 'bad' beacons with as many devices as possible before determining their inability.
