What is a Beacon and How Does it Work?

What is a beacon? A beacon is a small wireless device that uses Bluetooth LE, also known as Bluetooth Smart, to constantly broadcast radio signals to nearby smartphones and tablets. The beacon transmits what is called a UUID (universally unique identifier), which is picked up by a compatible app or operating system.
