Very thin (2.6mm), light, waterproof Beacon supporting both iBeacon and Eddystone (UID or URL) simultaneously. This beacon has been specially designed so that it uses low power even when motion detection is always on. Other unique features include a high 100db buzzer and press switch.

This beacon can transmit up to 2 channels at once. The first is the iBeacon channel that can be on or off. The 2nd channel, also on or off, is custom in that you can put any data into it. It can be used to send Eddystone-UID, Eddystone-URL or your own custom Bluetooth LE advertising data. Only the 2nd channel can be changed in this way so you can't send Eddystone-UID and Eddystone-URL together.

The beacon can be set up to only transmit advertising data when motion is detected. Furthermore, the level at which motion is detected can also be configured.

The beacon can be set up to only transmit the iBeacon or custom channel for 5 secs when the beacon button is double pressed.

While this beacon has both iOS and Android configuration apps, the iOS app is easier to use and is more functional. If you are setting up Eddystone-URL (for Android notifications) and you consider yourself to be non-technical then you will need use of an iOS device for setup.

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.

Due to its size and waterproofing, this beacon is a sealed unit. The battery can't be replaced without damaging the case.
