U1 Programmable Tag can be plugged into a laptop, desktop or any micro USB port supply. This U1 beacon can be controllable via micro USB, meaning allows you to control it from external devices such as laptops, computers, as well as via our configuration app BeaconSET+.
Why might you need a U1 beacon? Use cases such as use with digital signage and video walls in shopping centers and bus stations, sometimes need the beacon advertising to change in real-time while the display information changes. Then UART-connected beacons allow the beacon advertising to be changed by the host device, stronger applications other than just advertising.
