I’m looking into developing an App which requires Beacons to be approx 1 meter apart on a wall, yet the device needs to know which beacon it’s closer to in order to trigger an action.
Are Estimote Beacons (And/Or Stickers) suitable for this task? And does any one have any Examples or Videos that can show off this close range usage?
What settings would I need to tweak in order to have this working at it’s most optimal and fastest?
If you reduce the broadcasting power to the minimum, or close to the minimum, (and potentially add some basic averaging / noise filtering) this should be feasible, you just check which beacon’s signal is stronger. You might also want to reduce advertising interval for more data points—by default, beacons broadcast every 1 second, stickers every 2.5 seconds.
You can use the “Proximity Content for Multiple Beacons” template from Estimote Cloud to quickly and easily test/prototype this scenario:
