Access Mode is now available for Location and Proximity Beacons

Hi everyone!

TL;DR version: Share your beacons with your team without the need to transfer them

Longer version:

If you’ve been following our blog, you probably remember that time when we started shipping Location Beacons with UWB back in May. Simultaneously with this announcement, we also implemented a new way to access beacons in the teams - Access mode.

It allowed you to share access to your beacons with other people without the need to transfer the beacons between Estimote Cloud accounts. Beacon in the “Development Mode” would let anyone within its range to connect to it as well as to modify any settings. Once you were ready to deploy it in a public space, you could quickly switch it to “Deployed and Protected” mode and from then on only the owner of a beacon would be able to connect to it.

The reception of Access Mode was very positive in our community so we’re now making it available for the Proximity Beacons (the current generation) as well as Location Beacons. Here’s how to enable it.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about this feature, let us know!

Have a great weekend! :wink:
