Looking into iBeacon technology and found the google offering [1] alongside
the apple version.

I'd rather have the infrastructure owned by the property owner and use
linked-data more generically (rather than via service provider).  Any
suggested links for existing solutions that are less service-provider /
vendor tied?

I also found the paypal beacon [2] which also looked interesting, pondering
whether bluetooth ble's might be usable as a 2-part hardware token that
people might carry on their keychains (amongst the many other uses)...
