ProxySeek (PXS) provides users with selective access to curated services when they engage with a connected host application. This modular Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) add-on for iOS and Android apps makes networked, cross-platform file transfers efficient and secure.
PXS allows mobile users to privately share access passes, messages, links, coupons, and more when they are in close proximity to each other. Users can create personal profiles and use the integrated messenger to share feelings, photos, or music. Businesses, clubs, schools, and nonprofits can build custom, PSX-enabled platforms to enhance communication and reduce friction during transactions. ProxySeek can help app users check in early to a gallery exhibit, meet their trainer at the gym, or pick up their kids from school. Users can locate friends, colleagues, customers, and personnel as soon as they come into range. Network members can also opt to remain anonymous so that they can discreetly request and receive services and information. ProxySeek can send social media messages and broadcast targeted marketing without compromising the privacy of individual users. It improves life by putting the information and services users need at their fingertips while shutting out the noise of the world.
How ProxySeek Works
ProxySeek utilizes proxy-based peer-to-peer (P2P) networking to facilitate secure, hyperlocal, cross-platform file transfers within a microgeographic area. Users who install the same PSX-enabled app can access and share resources over a secure connection when they are within range of the network.
Why Is PXS Beneficial?
Members of app-based P2P networks can enjoy sharing photos, messages, jokes, memes, links, sensitive information, or important documents with each other over a private communication channel. Distributed resource allocation makes file sharing quick, easy, and convenient. As users join the network, they contribute resources that can increase the system’s overall performance. Although operations are decentralized, the network can be customized to direct the flow of information. Its architecture is flexible, scalable, extendible, and robust, so individuals can enjoy consistent performance even when other members join or leave the network.
Benefits to Individuals
Individuals who use ProxySeek can access curated resources quickly at low to no cost. They are shielded from irrelevant and unwanted communication, while maintaining their own privacy and anonymity.
Benefits to the Membership
ProxySeek empowers like-minded individuals to share information and resources that benefit the whole group, giving each member an opportunity to receive services without burdening the system.
Benefits to Customers
Customers can receive the information they want quickly, easily, and on demand. On-site benefits might include personalized rewards or the ability to communicate directly with a host, an organizer, a VIP, or other members in real time.
Benefits to Organizers
Organizers can provide focused energy, resources, and messaging to a receptive audience and reduce the opportunity for unwanted interactions.
How Do PXS Proxies Benefit Users?
Proxies are authorized intermediaries that protect the identity of the network and each of its peers while making communication safe and efficient. They can intercept traffic, filter out unwanted information, pass along requested content from a trusted source, and hide the location of the network or its users.
Proxies Provide Anonymity
Suppose a surprise guest, VIP, or a user who is short on time needs to pick up a special package without attracting unwanted attention. A proxy can verify a provider and recipient’s respective identities while hiding them from each other, even as the transaction takes place in the open.
Proxies Provide Privacy
Some users have no interest in sharing their location with other apps, web browsers, or online services. Proxies can provide privacy by hiding the network’s geographic location. They also keep the communication channel secure so that actions within the network are only visible to members.
Proxies Provide Access
An administrator can configure PXS to provide and control access to particular data streams. Using a proxy enables members to access information within the network. In some cases, PXS may allow apps or administrators to extract user data without compromising their privacy. The app can be programmed to deliver marketing, messages, announcements, and other offerings to specific members.
Proxies Provide Security
Proxy firewalls can prevent direct communication with other systems. Encrypted transmissions may be able to enhance security within the network.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
Like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Classic, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a communication protocol that can be used to send and receive messages. BLE optimizes power consumption by transmitting short, infrequent, low-data bursts of information, then reverting to an idle state. This allows users to bypass Wi-Fi while conserving battery power. Its short-range, 25 to 100-foot transmission radius provides added security by physically limiting access to the network. BLE is more precise and effective than GPS for locating enabled devices indoors. Its sensors rely on signal strength (RSSI) to estimate and provide location data within 16 feet, and they can be used to find users in nearby rooms. Today, all mobile devices are BLE-equipped. While PXS-equipped apps are meant to facilitate private peer-to-peer BLE networking, most can be configured to send and receive data to and from the Wi-Fi-connected Internet.
What Can ProxySeek Do for Your Organization?
There are many ways to use ProxySeek. Consider the possibilities listed below:
When a guest arrives, the attendant receives notification, checks them off the reservation list, greets them as they approach, and takes them to their table. PXS can make it easier to account for members of a large party who arrive within a short period of time.
Party Arrival and Confirmation
Guests can coordinate their arrival with the rest of the group and receive notifications as each member arrives.
Guests can receive push notifications about daily specials when they enter the restaurant.

Attendants can receive confirmation of a user’s payment and arrival, locate their order quickly, and hand it to them without delay.
If a regular customer pre-orders a meal, the restaurant can calibrate the preparation time so that the food will be fresh when the customer arrives.
Site-Specific Employee Access
A business can provide fast, secure building access to employees the moment they arrive at the door.
A dating app notifies users when they are in close proximity to their respective dates. The users can communicate through the app’s text messaging utility before meeting in person.
