3CHILLIES BRINGS 51DEGREES DEVICE DETECTION TO SITECORE

  • By Marketing Team
Marketing Team
Bryan Archer, from 3chillies, has recently upgraded the 51Degrees device detection extension for Sitecore to work with version 8 and beyond. The new extension uses the on-premise device detection service adding all 51Degrees properties to Sitecore's Rule Conditions engine. This enables website administrators to tailor content to different device types, physical screen sizes, input methods and over 100 other device properties.

Unlike other device detection solutions, which acknowledge an up to 100 millisecond overhead, 51Degrees can process a single detection in 0.0016 milliseconds. Its patent-pending technology delivers over 99.9% accuracy and eliminates false positives. Over 28,000 active web-enabled devices are fully researched and catalogued compared with around 8,000 from some competitors. When combined with versions of web browser and operating system over 320,000 unique device combinations are recognised.
