The Series 200 beacon features an LED indicator so you know exactly the state of the beacon, a reset switch, and the ability to upgrade the firmware over the air.

Trusted Beacon

Trusted Beacon™ is a beacon that can’t be impersonated, or spoofed. It uses a digital signature of standard beacon information so that your app and your solution can trust that it actually came from beacons that you deployed. Since only the beacon can create this signature, your app can trust the beacon.

Using Bleu Station Beacons With Casper Suite

Casper Suite 9.5 Introduced the ability to activate workflows based on proximity to iBeacon devices. Bleu Stations from Twocanoes Labs are an iBeacon-enabled device that works great with Casper Suite 9.5. Using the free Bleu JSS setup iOS app, an administrator can define iBeacons in the Casper Suite JSS, and then easily set up the physical beacons in their environment. This document outlines this process.
