Getting Started

The Bluedot Point SDK enables an 'always-on' geo-location capability for apps by delivering accurate location awareness, while substantially reducing battery consumption compared to Core Location or other standard methods. The Point SDK connects to the Bluedot's backend system, Point Access, to download your pre-configured Geofences, GEOLINE™, Bluetooth Beacons, conditions and actions.

The Point SDK enables rapid development of location-aware apps. It delivers precise location awareness to the mobile application, but without the usual battery drain that would typically occur. There's also no need for additional hardware, making it highly scalable. This means the Point SDK enables location-based apps and experiences that were previously impossible. The rest is up to you.

The Point Access web application provides interfaces to configure location-related data for mobile Apps powered by the Bluedot Point SDK. The Point SDK then downloads and executes them within the Application, both in foreground and background execution modes.

Developer resources for the SDKs for Android and iOS, Bluedot Point Access and Public APIs can be accessed from this page.

From the Bluedot team.
