Beacons on the Social Scavenger App
Here is a quick and easy breakdown on how Beacons work on the Social Scavenger app. From the admin side, it begins with a quick configuration of your Beacon(s) so that each Beacon matches the right game and challenge.
Players have to get within range of a Beacon to unlock Challenges (photo, video, trivia, stickers, and many other unique challenges to choose from.) Sweet.
The Future is Here with Beacons
Beacons are a great way to engage with your audience, and get them moving on their feet. What is a Beacon you may ask? A Beacon is a small device (think piece of plastic) that uses Bluetooth technology to send radio waves to surrounding devices (i.e a player’s smartphone.) Once the device picks up a signal from the Beacon, it will state its proximity in meters.
Different ways to use Beacons?
- Mr X. Place a Beacon in somebody’s pocket – forcing people to track down your mystery guest.
- Involve vendors and sponsors, driving traffic to their locations.
- Use riddles and clues to help players get in ‘range’ of the Beacon.
- Lock multiple challenges to each Beacon.
