iBeacon support

Postby Novinski » 14:58, 23 Apr 2014

Hi!

We are a group of people at an R&D lab looking into iBeacon technology. We aim to create mobile solutions using iBeacons and a backend system we are developing. We noticed you have some examples scanning for BLE devices. Do you plan to support iBeacons? If so, any idea of when?

Thanks!

We have a small JavaScript library that uses our BLE plugin to scan for iBeacons. It is not yet integrated into Evothings Studio, but I have uploaded the code here.

It works only on Android, since iOS unfortunately does not supply the [BLE scanRecord] that contains the raw iBeacon data.

Fortunately, I have found another Cordova plugin that does support iBeacons on iOS.

We would like to add this plugin to the Evothings Client in a future version. Until then, if you want to use it, you will have to modify the Client to include the plugin yourselves. It should not be very hard, and if you have any questions, we're ready to help.

The plans for upcoming versions of Evothings Studio include adding support for ibeacons and related services on both Android and iOS. We've received several questions in relation to this lately, and think it's a good addition to the growing number of hardware and systems supported!

best
