Beecon is a home automation app for your iPhone.
As an interface to things, Beecon allows you to create regions using iBeacons or GPS and define actions that are called when you enter or leave them. You can also use shortcuts in your Today View and in the app itself to manually control HomeKit accessories, LIFX, Philips Hue and Lux lights, IFTTT recipes, web services or common infrared appliances, including conventional air conditioners or vacuum robots (requires iTach infrared module).
Beecon also offers audible feedback for the visually impaired and spoken reminders that allow you to listen to your calendar events or simple notes when you enter or leave your regions.

Important: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Great but needs a little more...
I need to be able to turn two lifx lights on from one beacon... Or what about if I want my tv and two lifx lights to come on... I can't sequence or simultaneously turn on multiple devices. Also, near and far need to be something I can set... By standing somewhere and clicking... This is where near ends... Finally... I need to be able to assign a different action to far and near... What if I want to leave my bedroom and turn off the lights but I'm not far enough to be out of range...
Great app for automation with beacons
Offers everything one can think of, including automation based on geofencing (and beacons of course). It's a simple to use app that packs powerful features and a polished, intuitive ui.
I really like the features it offers. Beecon seems to control my Hue bulbs better and faster than Philips own app. Totally recommend it if you have Hue lights or other home accessories.
