Mobile Device Detection with Handset Detection

"Handset Detection keeps our customers up to date with all the latest devices and their capabilities so no more redirecting tablets off to a mobile site."

Handset Detection of Melbourne, Australia, has released a stand-alone mobile device detection system that gives customers the ability to detect thousands of mobile devices locally on their own servers.

The company, which has been in the detection business for over four years, lets their customers find out exactly which mobile devices access their websites. Now Handset Detection has made a local device detection version available for customers to install on their own servers.

“We're using the same technology that we've pioneered over the last 4 years and made that available to our customers,” says founder Richard Uren. “We have pre-made development kits so all the hard work is done. We keep our customers up to date with all the latest devices and their capabilities so no more redirecting tablets off to a mobile site.”

While the process of mobile detection is relatively simple, developers and agencies simply can’t keep up with the hundreds of new devices added each month. Handset Detection has performed over 1.3 billion detections and has over 500,000 mobile devices variations in their database. Plus, since the detection system is all in memory, the process is incredibly fast.

The local device detection license is charged per website rather than per server. This is works out for a huge price savings for the customer.

“Our mission is to help web developers and digital agencies the world over with real enterprise quality mobile device detection,” Uren says, “the kind that big guys like Google and Facebook have without having to manage that themselves.”
