An API for the real world

Movements and interactions trigger digital events.

  
   {customer: "046e7922", action: "enteredStore", timestamp: "1500996351" }
   {product: "d0107e43" state: "inUse", duration: "52" }
   > StoreManager.find("closest").notify()
  

These events can be captured and easily turned into relevant actions. Using data and software automation, a new frontier of real-world apps is possible.

  
   let monitoringManager = ESTMonitoringManager()
   monitoringManager.startMonitoringForIdentifier("7f6d1ab0", inProximity: .Near)

   func monitoringManager(manager: ESTMonitoringManager,
                          didEnterRangeOfIdentifier identifier: String) {
     ESTRequestGetBeaconDetails(identifier: identifier).sendRequest { (details)
       if user.isFirstTimeIn(details.geoLocation) {
         showNotification("First time in \(details.name)? Swipe here for our recommendations.")
       } else {
         showNotification("Welcome back to \(details.name)! Swipe here to learn what's new.")
       }
     }
   }
  
  
    let monitoringManager = ESTMonitoringManager()
    monitoringManager.startMonitoringForIdentifier("7f6d1ab0")

    func monitoringManager(manager: ESTMonitoringManager,
                           didEnterRangeOfIdentifier id: String) {
      ESTBeaconDetails(identifier: id).get { (details)
        if user.isFirstTimeIn(details.geoLocation) {
          showNotification("See our recommendations!")
        } else {
          showNotification("Welcome back to \(details.name)!")
        }
      }
    }

An operating system for the physical world

Apps designed for one location can easily be run in many others. Our easy-to-install location intelligence software can deliver personalized experiences at scale.

Estimote scalable systems

How does the technology work?

Ubiquitous computing is here. Tiny inexpensive wireless computers are everywhere. They are in our pockets, or embedded into our surroundings and nearby objects. They talk to each other by sending ambient radio signals.

Estimote Sensors

Estimote SDK can be embedded into mobile apps, which can then use signals from built-in sensors or nearby beacons to estimate the context and micro-location of an event.

With our simple API, developers can easily build proximity or indoor location applications and trigger pre-programmed actions or send relevant messages.

What are the most popular applications?

Oh, there are many! The best are those that automate processes, remove friction, or deliver magical experiences.
