Overview

Skill Level: Any

If your application can benefit from location based messaging, and the trigger area is large, unmoving, outside and predefined, you might want to consider using Geofence technology instead of Beacons. Geofences can be a very effective way of sending push messages to users at the right place at the right time. Geofence radii should be large enough to contain the area of interest, including some external area so GPS can be effective. But, it should also not be too large as to send messages to users too far away to be interested in them.
