Medium size beacon with medium range supporting both iBeacon and Eddystone. One of the most commonly used beacons. Battery level can be shown in the advertising data or via a Bluetooth GATT connection.
Note that only the iOS configuration app (as of v2.6.9), not Android, has an 'easy' configure screen to set up Eddystone-UID and Eddystone-URL data and setting Eddystone stops iBeacon advertising and vice versa. However, both the iOS and Android configuration apps allow the lower level Service Characteristics to be changed to get the two channels working at the same time.
AnkhMaway beacons are commonly rebranded and have been used, for example, by Jaalee, AttachNFind, Engage (Italy), Lidl (Germany), Lowes (USA), Emirates Airline, Singapore Government and the Brazilian Police.
