Beacon Beacon v1.0

Download Beacon

Beacon, a free and ad-free, light weight, energy efficient, stripped down version of a security App which would greatly aid you in finding your Android incase its lost. The App uses SMS as its primary means of communication as it’s more reliable than 3G/GPRS/EDGE etc.

Using Beacon is ultra-simple; just send an SMS when its right and it will respond accordingly nearly instantly. It is resilient to SIM change as it has the ability to detect a SIM change and alert a pre-specified number (via SMS) that a SIM change has occurred.

> No registration, no account creation, light weight and ad-free
> Find your phone using loud siren + flashing screen (hard to miss)
> Password Protected control panel in case of intrusion
> Triangulation using GPS/GSM or CDMA Network
> Received SMS commands invincible to the user (Stealth)
> Receive Google Maps location as SMS
> Receive alerts via SMS on SIM Change
> Works when Internet Disabled
> Works even when silent
> Resilient to SIM change
> Works globally with an active connection
> Minimal battery drain
> Easy to learn
> Easy to use

Simple Example: [Default username/passwords are test/test]
> @beacon username password shout
> @beacon username password silent (silents the shout, could use control panel insted)
> @beacon username password sms-location
> @beacon username password sd-wipe (seems to have issues)

Min Requirements:
> Android 2.2 or above

Do First:
> Change the username/password from the main menu, some body could use to annoy you otherwise.

Does Not Include:
> Web Based Interface
> Premium Garbage, all features will remain free and ad-free

Why No Web Interface:
> You can do everything VIA SMS
> You are used to SMS & no learning curve to follow
> A misplaced phone needs to be found within minutes, before it falls in to wrong hands
> No time to log-in, report lost and wait for responses that sometimes never come

Honestly, what if device is stolen?
> The thief is very likely to do factory reset
> All apps including ‘Anti Theft Apps’ lost
> If at all the thief is not smart, you will know his phone number, track him down from it

Any Issues:

I hope your beloved device does never require my service.

Good Luck!
