Is background monitoring possible with Eddystone?

Hi, the Android SDK offers Eddystone scanning but, is this suitable for continuous background scanning? is there something similar to monitornig that works with Eddystone?

Hi @ivanc,
While we do not have the same APIs for monitoring as for normal beacons, BeaconManager is suitable for continues background scanning.

1/ You need to hold reference to BeaconManager inside your Application class and not activity.
2/ Set scanning periods via BeaconManager#setForegroundScanningPeriods(5000 for scan time, 30000 for wait time).

We are working on generalised “filter” concept for background scanning with all different packet types.
