Abstract – Aim of our project is to design an iBeacon based indoor and outdoor location monitoring system. Product which is to track has an beacon module. Normally it transmits the UUID address to owner’s app. By using RSS value from UUID address we can identify the exact location of the product(indoor).If the product is lost outdoor means it can’t communicate with Owner’s app. For this purpose whoever has an ibeacon app who passes near the product can receive UUID address. By this it will transmit the current position to the owner’s app, without any knowledge of client app.

Keywords— Bluetooth; Android; Indoor Positioning; UUID Address
