Aislelabs Releases Report on iBeacon Hardware Battery Consumption

The Hitchhikers Guide to iBeacon Hardware Provides a Comprehensive Analysis of Strengths and Weaknesses of 16 Beacons

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2014) - Aislelabs, the leading provider of in-store marketing and analytics program, releases its latest report -- "The Hitchhikers Guide to iBeacon Hardware - A Comprehensive Report by Aislelabs."

For an in-depth look at 16 iBeacon hardware vendors, Aislelabs stress-tested each in its lab over a period of three months to measure battery consumption. The battery consumption of beacons is extremely important when deploying them in a large enterprise setting. With thousands of beacons in the field, monitoring for battery levels and replacing those with low battery is a significant undertaking -- both in terms of expense and manpower. The ideal situation is to use beacons with a longer battery life.

"Battery life is a crucial component to the success of beacon use, especially in large deployments in industries such as retail, financial services, airports and hospitality. With this report, we wanted to determine the best features of the options currently available on the market," said Nick Koudas, CEO of Aislelabs. "With this study, our hope is to shed light on beacon hardware through the analysis of the battery consumption."

Aislelabs' products utilize the iBeacon technology to create hyper-local experiences. Aislelabs platform works with most major beacon hardware vendors while providing a software layer for security and spoof protection. The platform includes enterprise-grade scalable beacon deployment and management platform and intelligent cloud infrastructure to create automated multi-step campaigns.

After three months of testing most major beacon hardware available in the market, the report concluded the following:

  • The most stylish beacon: Estimote
  • The most high-performance beacon: Kontakt
  • The best value for money beacon: Minew
  • The best beacon with built-in spoof protection: Gimbal

The hardware tested by Aislelabs includes Accent Systems, April Brother, BlueSense, Estimote, Gimbal Series 10, Gliworm, Kontakt.io, KSTechnologies, Minew, Roximity, Radius Networks, RECO Beacon, RedBear, Sensorberg, SensorTag and Tod.
