TRUSTED BY TOP VENUES AND RETAILERS
Successfully deployed in hundreds of thousands of key retail environments, venues, events, museums, conferences and out-of-home assets around the globe, our secure beacons are trusted to empower engaging and consistent mobile app experiences.
SECURITY FOR OWNERS
Secure transmissions ensure the highest level of consumer privacy and managed experiences while offering an opportunity for beacon owners to "digitally own" their beacon inventory. This allows beacon owners to manage mobile experiences by securely leasing access to the mobile apps and partners that they authorize. So your partners are able to provide a unique experience while protecting you from showrooming or conquesting.
BETTER ANTENNAS MEAN BETTER DATA AND LOWER DEPLOYMENT COSTS
Thanks to their unique and innovative omni- and directional-antenna designs, Gimbal beacons have superior signal clarity. This means it is easier to set up your beacons and begin leveraging your platform, while requiring less time and labor to enable your hardware. This provides more possible use cases, predictable/repeatable user experiences, greater accuracy for your engagements and better data from your campaigns.
GREATER EFFICIENCY FOR REDUCED MAINTENANCE
With Bluetooth® Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy) transmitters and superior engineering, our latest beacons last 18 months at the highest transmission rate and longer in other configurations, on just four AA batteries. They also transmit every 100ms continuously and provide temperature and battery-level data to help simplify maintenance and operations.
SIMPLIFIED MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT
Gimbal Manager makes it easy to manage all the beacons in your network, even those from other manufacturers. It also allows for easy upgrading of all Gimbal beacons. Gimbal beacons can be quickly configured to transmit in multiple modes, including iBeacon mode. This ensures a customized platform that can transmit across iOS and Android devices. Depending on your needs, the proprietary “Gimbal mode” provides additional layers of security for deeper control of your location and proximity network while also simplifying deployment and management. This reduces the operational costs and makes Gimbal’s beacons the industry’s most user-friendly.
OPTIMIZED FOR INDOOR OR OUTDOOR USE
With flexibility in mind, our latest beacons are designed to NEMA 3 specifications and have been proven for exceptional performance both indoors or outdoors. This means the elements are no longer a barrier to engaging your customers with the most relevant and timely information.
Manufacturers interested in evolving their offering to fit the Internet-of-Things (IoT) movement, can now license Gimbal Bluetooth firmware to build beacon discovery functionality into previously unexplored products, such as light bulbs, WiFi access points, appliances, home automation, smart cities, or anything needing secure digital discovery. These devices then can function as beacons, communicating with smart mobile devices, and become part of the Gimbal beacon network. Gimbal’s proprietary firmware is capable of running on existing embedded platforms including Windows®, Linux®, Android™ , Intel x86 and proprietary systems, among others. Through this solution, Gimbal can license the ability to both transmit and detect beacons.
