Switzerland Entertainment

BeaconZone „@Wiedikon Valley" is an exciting pilot project (the first of this kind in Switzerland) where the goal is to equip shops and institutions along a street with smart technologies and in particular to apply proximity detection using BLE 4.0 components based on the iBeacons strandard of Apple.

The project is an ideal platform to collect feedback and experience in the iBeacons area and in the coming months will allow to apply and measure the impact of various and typical proximity detection use case situations and constellations from a vendor and consumer perspective.

After downloading the BeaconZone App from the App-Store (or Android store), users walking down the street of „Wiedikon Valley" can therefore experience proximity event notifcations, such as product offerings, daily menu cards when entering a restaurant or receive electronic discount coupons issued by some shops participating in the first phase of the project.
