Ion

The beacon that developers love

Ion uses either iBeacon™, Eddystone™, or a combination of both technologies to talk to other Bluetooth 4.0 enabled devices, like your iPhone, Android, Windows, or Mac. It emits advertisements which can be discovered by your device for indoor navigation, asset tracking, micro-location based content, and more!

Ion does not require any third party SDK! You can use the stock iOS & Android SDKs to listen for Ion’s BLE advertisements. Engineered and manufactured here in the USA, we offer a full Particle Family API that describes how you can connect, configure, and perform firmware updates for Ion in your own application. Developer’s love the on-board power switch, which enables easy testing of ranging and region notifications.

Ion’s firmware and hardware are fully customizable to fit your specific needs. The device is currently certified by the FCC (US), IC (Canada) and CE (EU). KST can white label Ion with your logo and register your branded device with the FCC, IC, and CE.

Ion is 100% compliant with both the Apple iBeacon Specification as well as the Eddystone Specification.

We’ve taken a “no strings attached” approach to Ion – it is a Beacon in its purest form, allowing you to craft whatever experience you can imagine! There is no recurring licensing fees, no required SDK, and you are not required to register your device with us.
