The Maggy device was originally created as a social distancing device, after winning the EUvsVirus hackathon organised by the European Commission. + 25,000 devices have been produced. Hundreds of companies protected their employees and ensured business continuity. Now the Maggys can also be rented for events, serve as a Bluetooth beacon, or be used as an educational developer tool for universities to learn young developers to get started with IoT.


For business: a BLE 5.1 device for social distancing. For events: rent a Maggy as from 9€/day! For education: Maggy can be reprogrammed in C, C++ and Assembly, allowing students to develop experience with IoT. For local intelligence: one of the most accurate Bluetooth beacons available. Engage with app users when they are close to your Maggy beacons!


Maggy is a strong concept. No tracking. Pocket size. It warns you through an audio & vibrating signal. The latest Bluetooth 5.2 technology makes Maggy extremely precise and reliable. The device has an energy-efficient rechargeable battery. Widely affordable pricing.
