I am interesting in using Estimote beacons in offline mode.
I know that beacon broadcasts only UUID;maj;min. But I want to get access to Estimote sensors.
So far, when I am trying to get beaconConnection established I am receiving Authorization error.
Is there any way to work with beacons offline (change beacon settings, access to sensors, etc)?
Ranging and monitoring works perfectly fine offline.
Changing beacon settings and access to sensors requires the SDK to download some additional data from your Estimote Account, and exchange some data with Estimote Cloud, in order to be able to connect to a beacon.
We designed it this way for security reasons—online authentication prevents unauthorized parties from “hacking” into your beacon. The downside is, there’s no way to make it work offline under that model.
