A smart device is an electronic device, generally connected to other devices or networks via different wireless protocols such as Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi, 3G, etc., that can operate to some extent interactively and autonomously.
A beacon is a class of Bluetooth low energy (BLE) communication to nearby electronic devices. The technology enables smartphones, tablets and other devices to perform actions when in close proximity. Based on Bluetooth low energy proximity, beacons can be used to determine a device's physical location, exchange information between devices, or trigger a location-based action on a device.
The phrase "Internet of Things" reflects the growing number of smart, connected products and highlights the new opportunities they can represent.
