More on Bluetooth, Location, & Notifications

You may be wondering why elistik requests access to Bluetooth, Location, and Notifications. Each of these are central to elistik working to its fullest capacity for you. Simply put:

  • Bluetooth Sharing allows elistik to transform your device to a broadcast-sending beacon, or to connect to an external hardware beacon.
  • Location (Always) means that you can send and receive nearby broadcasts.
  • Notifications means you’ll be alerted when you receive a broadcast that is relevant to you.

Each of these options may be managed within the ‘Settings’ app on your device. You can also read more from our Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy.


Transform Your iPhone into a Beacon

elistik requests access to Bluetooth Sharing on your device in order to transform your device to a broadcast-sending beacon, or to connect to an external hardware beacon. You can manage this option in the ‘Settings’ app on your device.

Good news: broadcasting from your device does not require any significant drain on your device’s battery.

If you send a broadcast from your iOS device, elistik will need to be in the foreground (i.e., currently open) in order to send. But here’s some more good news: if you send a broadcast from an external hardware beacon, the broadcast will send even if you’re using another app on your device, or its battery dies.


Order an External Hardware Beacon
