Is continuous background scanning possible?

BeaconManager.setBackgroundScanPeriod has two parameters which are scanPeriodMillis, waitTimeMillis.

Default values: scanPeriod=5s, waitTime=25s Minimum values: scanPeriod=0.2s waitTime=0s

if I set 5s for scanPeriod and 0s for WaitTime will the app scan continuously without any waiting?

Hey @ChrisXplor,

it seems that if you put the waitTime value to 0, the scan will be always running.

Thank you Ximun,

However, I have noticed in real world tests beacons don’t get detected right away. Is that due to SDK and operating system optimisations?

It’s maybe a physical issue, like the walls, the human body…
