İbeacon estimote scaning


#1

Hello, I am grateful for opening such a forum site to developers. There’s something I’m having trouble with. I want to use Node.js to scan “wgx ibeacon” with Raspberry Pi. I can’t see the “wgx ibeacon” I used when I ran “sudo node estimote-telemetry.js” on the command line. What exactly is the reason for this? Is there a solution?

    pi@raspberrypi:~/estimote-specs-master $ sudo node estimote-telemetry.js
    state has changed poweredOn`
    started scanning

The screen remains that way.

The estimote-telemetry.js is for detecting telemetry data from Estimote Beacons. It’s an Estimote-specific, proprietary format, so it’s unlikely other beacons (like WGX) support it.

Most beacons out there use Apple’s iBeacon format, and for that, you can use e.g. the node-bleacon library: https://github.com/sandeepmistry/node-bleacon
