Help! Trying to use automation app with beacons, on Android


So I was given a project where I am supposed to use automation apps such as Tasker and Locale and connect an app with iBeacon. I tried downloading an iBeacon plugin from my Android device but to no avail, it doesn’t work.

Is there a way where i can use an automation apps such as Tasker or Locale and combine them with iBeacons or Eddystone? Im new to programming and have not a clue on how to use GitHub and Eddystone either. Frankly, I’m lost. I already looked over tutorials but when I tried doing it, it did not work for me.

The end goal is trying to use automation app to trigger an app using ibeacon when we are close the ibeacon. I already have an app but i want to integrate an ibeacon with it so it can trigger it when i’m near ibeacons.



If you already have an app, then you can add our Estimote Android SDK to it. This will enable you to detect beacons, and trigger actions.

We have a short tutorial on how to get started:

You can also take a look at our ready-made app templates, generate yourself some of them, take a look at the code, and maybe use some of that in your own app:
