The Nordic nRF51822 Bluetooth® Smart Beacon Kit is a reference design that lets you explore the full range of development possibilities for beacons using Bluetooth Smart technology. It provides a complete hardware and software solution that, when used with our nRF Beacon App (available for both iOS v4.1 and Android v4.3), gives you everything required for designing a comprehensive beacon system.


Check out our Beacon kit demo and watch us crash a quadcopter while demonstrating how to setup the app and use the Beacon's features.





It is ultra-compact at 20 mm diameter and can run from CR1632 coin-cell batteries. The kit has two buttons which can be programmed to enable easy switching between modes and/or functionality, as well as an RGB LED which can be configured to indicate different events. Ten GPIO pins are available for expansion and the kit can be connected to an external programmer/debugger during development work. The nRF51822 Bluetooth Smart Beacon Kit also supports complete Over-The-Air (OTA) Device Firmware Upgrade (DFU) for all firmware on the nRF51822 chip.


  • 1 x nRF51822 Bluetooth Smart Beacon Kit Module
  • Apps and source code available as downloads

If you plan to work with Beacons, we highly recomend purchasing the NRF51-DK.
