• Forecum 201 (Non-sensor version)

Longer range sensor beacon with larger battery. Rubber style casing that makes the beacon water resistant. Supports iBeacon and Eddystone (URL and UID) but not simultaneously.

The Forecum 201 comes in many versions and some even have different CPUs. This one is based on the Nordic 51822 and doesn't have any sensors. We also have a sensor version.

Blue only. Can also be used without silicone cover with transparent case.

Sky beacons also have a system clock with configurable on and off times to help preserve battery life. Single press turns on (blue led lights) or off (red led lights). Long press factory resets the beacon.

In BeaconZone independent tests this beacon had an outstanding range of 108m at normal power (0dBm) and 190m at full power (+4dBm).

Note that the side on/off only works in iBeacon mode.

Supplied with details how to access the technical and programming information.
