Once the password has been correctly inserted, the app starts reading beacon
information and configuration. Then, the main menu interface is
provided, offering access to the following options:
- Device Informations: access to beacons information (model, serial number, ...);
- Global Settings: configuration of global beacon parameters;
- Eddystone: configuration of Eddystone frames;
- iBeacon / Others: configuration of iBeacon frames or other frames (Quuppa, Sensors);
- Safety: configuration of BlueUp proprietary Safety packet frames.
