4xAA battery Beacon from Microsoft backed Sensoro with a 5+ year battery life. Supports iBeacon and Eddystone (UID and URL) simultaneously. Dual antenna. Temperature sensor. Dust proof. Supports Eddystone EID and Eddystone GATT via a firmware update.

Our BeaconZone measurements have shown that Lithium AA batteries should last 7.7 years (transmitting iBeacon only, at 760ms and 0db).

Stand alone configuration app available. Use with or without the Sensoro Device Management Cloud.

The optional Sensoro cloud provides:

  • Added Security. Sensoro beacons can be put into a mode that rotates the major/minor to prevent squatters. However, as with all such schemes this relies on an app Internet connection back to the cloud, which isn't always available, introduces delays and hence can make detection seem less reliable. 
  • Mapping. Google mapping of the last known beacon position.
  • Deployment Maps. Upload your own map and locations where you have deployed beacons.
  • Central Monitor Dashboard. Allows monitoring of large numbers of devices' status including battery level, temperature, motion count, light level and other configuration settings such as the transmit level and advertising interval.

Sensoro also provides a Mass Deployment tool to ease on site configuration updates. There's also an Inspection Tool that provides on-site collection of battery level and sensor data from large numbers of devices without connecting to each device.

White only. Batteries not included.

This is the newer version of the 4AA that has:

  • Battery arrangement optimised from +/-/-/+ to +/-/+/-.
  • Firmware upgraded to the latest edition to improve stability.
  • No motion sensor.
