Check to see if your beacons are ready for the Eddystone-URL protocol by visiting your beacon manufacturer’s website.
If you’re looking for the simplest solution to start using the Physical Web, each BKON brand beacon comes standard with a 6 character phyID on the side (and inside) so there’s no additional configuration needed. Getting started is simple:
If you already use another beacon brand, but want to reutilize that investment for a Physical Web deployment, you likely can. Visit your beacon manufacturer’s website and look for Eddystone-URL compatibility. If you are “Eddy-Ready”, then you can simply add a phyID compatible URL to that beacon’s destination and it will instantly become compatible with our PHY.net platform.
If you have questions contact us. We would be happy to help.
Since each beacon brand’s process is a little different, it is a good idea to visit the manufacturer’s site for how to make the switch to Eddystone-URL with your brand of beacon.
Once confirmed, PHY.net will let up update your Physical Web beacons’ destination links from anywhere, at any time, without ever having to pair with those beacons again.
