Modern buildings require different IT facilities, therefore integrated communication services have become a must. Although there are already commercial products on the market, most of them need well trained operators, while others require manual and time-consuming operations. The present paper introduces an intelligent displaying and alerting system (SICIAD), implemented over a communication infrastructure with support for wireless ePaper and iBeacon technologies to enhance displaying static and dynamic information, as well as to ease the indoor orientation of guests using smartphones. An Android mobile application is developed which enables indoor user location and guidance. Possible beneficiaries of such systems are educational and research institutions due to remote authentication support in research facilities through Eduroam technology. The paper gives functional validation and performance evaluation aspects are presented for the indoor positioning component of the proposed system.
