Columbus State University Activates New iBeacon Technology to Aid Student Safety Efforts

Beacon app development is a proven mettle for state-of-the-art technologies within the limited period of time. Let’s see how Beacon based solutions are the pertinent source for enhancing the the field of Education.

Columbus State University has teamed up with Piper Networks to create a campus safety tool for students. The partners have deployed a network of wireless Bluetooth beacons across campus that can help students feel safer and more connected.

By utilizing iBeacon app development, the university made the University Police accessible to the CSU students. If the students should have a safety concern or want to report suspicious behavior, this app allows anyone to call campus police directly or text the police with their accurate location data based on the nearest iBeacon’s unique number.

Beacon app development for the ‘Safe Campus’ Program

“The Safe Campus program provides an easy way for officials to accurately and rapidly assist the students, even if they are not sure of their exact location,” said Mark Lott, interim chief of University Police. “This technology is another layer that we can add onto the many things we undertake on a daily basis to help our students and employees feel safe.”

Columbus recently became the world’s most fully deployed iBeacon city with over 1,250 beacons and 85+ businesses and organizations using the beacon app to share messages that include simple text notifications, Piper-only specials, photos, videos, links to websites or social media, and even Apple Passes.

Interim chief of University Police, Mark Lott, says, “The Safe Campus program provides an easy way for officials to accurately and quickly dispatch assistance to the student, even if the student is not sure of their exact location.”

Mark Lott says, “This technology is another layer that we can add onto the many things we undertake on a daily basis to help our students and employees feel safe.”

Campus safety and support with beacon app development

Apart from the safety measures, there are other benefits of beacon app development that enhances the Campus operations.

  1. Enhancing the campus navigation
  2. Automatic check-in for class attendance
  3. Professors can create polls and share information easily for specific students
  4. Students can share the assignments with students in the close proximity

Beacons Based Mobile App for a cause

Beacons and BLE device nowadays have become a centre of attraction for every small businesses. The topic itself says that beacons used here is for some cause, thinking what the cause is all about? Let me take you through this cause which will just mesmerise your thoughts and leave you in deep thoughts.

  1. Poverty in India is the biggest issues. In 2015 around 12.4% people lived in poverty, a reduction from 29.8% in 2009 along with clocking the growth of 7.6% in 2015.
  2. About 16.4 % of the European population is poor, representing 22.8% of normal GDP
  3. As of 2016 year, 14.5% of people in USA are living below poverty line.
  4. The poverty line has declined to more than a half from 1.9 million in 1990 to 836 million in 2015, over the past 2 decades in Arab countries. Despite of such progress the country is making, according to UNDP between 2010 and 2012 the percentage of the population in the region making less than $1.25 a day increased from 4.1 percent to 7.4 percent.
  5. So nearly 1/2 of the world’s population, more than 3 billion people —live on less than $2.50 a day.

The cause is Poverty, a major concern of every country, state and city. Poverty,  where one is unable to suffice the basic needs from shelter to food for himself. Being homeless isn’t just easy. Being hungry is also not easy, it’s like sleep hungry and waking up hungry.

Everybody wants to help but how? Technology can help!

Everybody wants to help poor and cut out the poverty from the society but no one wants to be the first person to step out and lend the hand to poor. Isn’t it surprising that people say “Be the change you want to see”  but no one wants to be that change first. Here is the solution for that, Beacons.

How can beacon based solution can help to eradicate poverty?

The basic concept of this beacon based application is to help the poor to get his/her daily needs or the wishlist to be fulfilled. A beacon, of less range say detecting 10 meters range is given to every destitute person ( as a keychain or tag). To enroll into this service, the person has to be associated with NGO or case worker to complete the survey, for the people to reach them.

The app user can view the profile of the person along with the picture and the wish list before donating. This will happen once the poor person comes in the vicinity of the app user and the user gets the notification for it. The app user can either donate an amount towards an item in the wish list or can either donate the item itself.

Once the product is been fully funded or donated at the center, the needy person picks up the item from the respective case worker and hopefully get some additional support if needed. The app not only satisfies the short term goal of an individual but also focuses on creating more secure footing to achieve long term goals.

Now lets use our smart phones for this cause to tackle and eliminate poverty from our society.

“Are you an NGO or a Social Entrepreneur ? Do you want to know how technology can help to find a right solution for right cause? Letsnurture always looks forward and is ready to help in this case. “

A Beacon Installed in a Fridge Can Control Your Calories and Overeating!

We have seen a lot from beacon technology till date. They have been used in the retail shops, zoos, airports, concerts etc. But the recent release of a beacon app has changed the vision of using it. The Carrot Hunger beacon app released last week works on beacon technology. To make this app working, you need to synchronize the beacon with proximity UDID (Unique Device Identifier).

Beacon Installed in Fridge

What if the beacon is installed in a fridge? It can give you some awesome information you have never thought before. When a food item is scanned with the bar code, the beacon app installed on your phone can tell you how many calories of food you are storing in the food. This is possible with the synchronization of the beacon and its app. The calories scanned by the app will be directly noted in the beacon. What next?

Beacon Alarms You on Overeating

Beacon Alarms You on Overeating

Whenever you take some food from fridge, the beacon notices it and sends notifications to the app. The app will count the intake of calories by you and notify you whenever you overeat. Even if the food item is not placed in your fridge, the app counts the calories whenever you take the food. This is a perfect example of how one should explore the beacon technology in today’s modern world.

Raising an Alarm

The app punishes you if at all you overeat despite of reminders. The app will display the full screen ads or ask for app payment or broadcast some irrelevant messages on your social media profiles if you overeat. It will create some good problems for you. Do you like such problems? After all it’s an app that is taking care of your health, but we have more knowledge than app what to eat and what no to eat. So follow the app instructions when it alarms you rather than ignoring it.

A Perfect App to Control Calories

It doesn’t matter what kind of food you are taking but every food item has calories in it. Fitness tracker apps just show the amount of calories you burn but if you want to know the intake of calories, such beacon apps are very useful. Overall it’s a perfect app to install and install the beacon in your fridge to know more what you eat all the day. It is not only the fridge where you can install the beacon, you can use it in the kitchen too.

The development of beacon apps in the recent days has been rapidly increasing. Initially, the beacons were limited to retail market and public places. But through this app, you will be able to see the beacon technology with a different vision. The only defect in this calorie app is it doesn’t come with iBeacon, but you have to buy your own beacon device and set the proximity UDID to synchronize the app and beacon.
