Does my beacon need an Internet connection?


Beacons (i.e. the sensor / transmitter) themselves do not use the Internet, as they only transmit their unique ID (i.e. UUID, Major, and Minor) using wireless Bluetooth Smart technology. The receiving device, normally a smartphone or tablet, uses this ID to display content or connect to the Internet and download content. So it's your smartphone, not the Beacon that will need Internet connectivity.
