Proximity Platform SDK

Now your apps can communicate peer-to-peer with our lightweight wireless device discovery and messaging platform as drop-in module. In the past, mobile operating systems would control all communications from buried system settings menus, but when two or more NewAer devices are in a room, they can see one another over our framework. If a wearable or broadcasting iBeacon is nearby, you can use those as in-room push triggers in your apps.

Discover all nearby wireless devices in addition to iBeacons
Communicate peer-to-peer without cellular signals or WiFi data.
Automate onboarding to your application in app or perform pattern matching in the cloud.

Download the the SDK

If you are considering iBeacon support for your app and want to expand to peer-to-peer device messaging without hardware; download our Proximity Platform SDK to see the future.
