Physical Web

Physical Web

The Physical Web is an open source project, championed by Google, that uses Bluetooth beacons to transmit a URL or transmit an id (Eddystone-UID or iBeacon) that maps to a URL (or app) via Google's Nearby Service. The URL can point to anything, but this is typically a web page. On iOS you still need an app that's listening for the advertised URL. On Android the beacon detection and mapping via Google Nearby is inside Google Play Services so an app isn't required. Read more about Eddystone URL.

None of these beacons require you to sign up to proprietary web services to configure them. They come with smartphone apps that allow you to put the web address into the beacon. 

We also have a FREE EddystoneCMS and offer a Eddystone Configuration Service.

There are currently Physical Web clients (apps) for iOS and Android.

Eddystone-URL is used for the Physical Web URL. The following beacons support Eddystone-URL:
