Create your own Hierarchy of Content
Content can be kept up to date – as soon as you make any changes on the Admin Tool they are instantly available to app users.
Trigger Content Using iBeacons
iBeacons are typically used inside buildings. They use Bluetooth Low Energy to pulse out a signal carrying a unique identifier. They are battery operated, easy to fix to a wall or ceiling and do not require an internet connection. The main parameters that can be configured are the power of the output signal and the frequency of the pulse. Modifying these changes the sensitivity and accuracy of the detection.
Trigger Content Using GPS
It is possible to extend Situate to use alternative forms of trigger. We have done this recently to integrate with Panasonic’s Light ID technology. This allowed Situate to respond to LEDs pointing at individual exhibits.
In fact, it’s the best of both worlds because if the app detects an internet connection when it opens it will check the Situate server to see if there have been any content updates and if so it will download them. That way the content stays up to date and allows you to incorporate time-specific content such as events, announcements, changing exhibitions and so on.
Create Audio Tours
Audio files are uploaded to Situate in mp3 format.
The map will show the user’s location on the map, allow zooming in and out, and can mark out a route from the user’s current location to any marker on the map.
