High specification beacon from AnkhMaway. Possible to send iBeacon, Eddystone (UID or URL) and acceleration simultaneously.
Supports motion-triggered broadcast mode. Can send the acceleration value every (configurable) 100ms to 10s without connecting. Low 6uA power while detecting acceleration. The accelerometer range is +-4G. The movement detection sensitivity is adjustable.
Can send battery level in advertising data. Large capacity replaceable battery.
100m range. 58 month battery @ 1 sec advertising.
This beacon can transmit up to 3 advertising 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 3rd channel is the acceleration data that can also be on or off.
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 three 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.
