iBeacon technology is one of those things that makes you think it will change our way of living.
Within few years we will see this device everywhere around us. The main reason is that it provides new functions to our smartphones. It works like a sentinel that advise your smartphone that you are near it. When you enter in its area the smartphone activates an application connected with that specific beacon id.
Thanks to it many new things can be done. Say for instance you go to do some shopping and suddenly the smartphone warns you about a special discount inside the shop. This is just an example of the countless applications of this new technology!
An Italian company working in home and building automation field, ilevia Srl, uses this new technology to reach a new level of customization and integration between systems in home and building automation field.
We think this is only the begin of a new era of sensors that will catch a lot of information about us and our behaviors. These information can be used, if the user wants, for healthy purpose and automate our living in order to make it more comfortable. That’s ilevia goal.
It can be interesting to take in account people behaviour in a city and find out how people live. The big data analysis can show what actions to consider in order to prevent crimes, health problems or simply to give a better lifestyle to people living in big cities.
