We are working with Proximity beacons. Our implementation at the client site is delayed. How do we turn off the beacons to conserver the beacon battery. Any help will be appreciated

You can disable all the advertising packets, e.g., via the Estimote app.

The beacon will always broadcast one packet used for connecting and configuration (otherwise you wouldn’t be able to re-enable the other packets later :wink:), the Connectivity packet, but this one’s broadcast every 1.2 s by default, so it uses little energy.
