NewAer is a software as a service Bluetooth Low Energy discovery, beacon and peer-to-peer messaging platform. Our company name is derived from a “new” way to think about “airwaves.” We can agree that location based services and GPS are good outside, but fail indoors. Our proximity framework is an evolution of these, created by a team that figured it was about time for your smartphone to become smart inside. The idea is simple: Have it discover the environment and communicate to peers for you, instead of you pulling out your phone constantly, launching apps to tell it what to do. We built an engine for automated control over digital things in your life, then made it open so you could tweak and customize it as a developer. To ease the Internet of things triggered automagically and coming to life with proximity communications.

NewAer is more than just waking an app from an iBeacon. We enable in-room peer messaging, background identity, and automation in device or on the cloud from any nearby computing device.
