BLE-beacon supported technologies
The following technologies are supported simultaneously: the two main
technologies for proximity-beacons for mobile applications, iBeacon and
Eddystone, together with a technologies for RTLS BLE tags, Quuppa.
This is the first worldwide firmware to support these three technologies
at the same time. It also advertises a proprietary frame, BlueUp
Sensors, for sensor data broadcast.
Additionally, it guarantees full
support for Eddystone specifications.
This means that you will be able to manage BlueBeacon beacons (for
configuration of Eddystone frames) also using open-source development
tools for Eddystone beacons, such as
Proximity Beacon API from Google or
nRF Beacon for Eddystone
app from Nordic Semiconductors.
The list of beacons on your account provides, for each device, the following information: - model; - serial number; - MAC Address (if available, otherwise N/A); - project and venue of the beacon (whether available); - advertised technologies, via ...
Beacon details page provides information about: device description (editable); beacon GATT configuration (slot set, power, interval, ...); battery charge level; sensor measurements (whether available). Other features: - edit beacon's configuration ...
Beacon configuration templates
Configuration templates list (available only for Enterprise accounts) provides information about: - description; - technologies; - global settings; - date and time of the last update.
What is a beacon
A beacon is an intentionally conspicuous device designed to attract attention to a specific location. A classical example of beacon is the lighthouse, used in navigation, that helps navigators find their destination. In electronics, a beacon is a ...
Unlock / Lock beacon
By default, beacon is provided with Lock state enabled: this means that you need to insert password to connect to the beacon and read/write characteristics in GATT service. Default password is blueup. When you log-in in Lock mode (password requested ...
