We are working on app that use estimote beacons. We intercept ibeacons and eddytone packets and show them. Earlier we used to use the iBeacon packet Mac Address to connect to the beacon and configure.
So we display to the user a list of ibeacons/eddystorneURL around him and he can edit each.
Now we have moved to the latest android SDK and I can see that Estimote broadcast different packets with different mac address. So the Mac address can no longer be used and I can see deviceId was introduced and can be found in Connectivity packet. The issue I am having is I cant find a way to map the iBeacon/Eddystone packet to its corresponding Connectivity Packet, which allow the user if once he see the ibeacon/eddystone packet he will have its connectivity packet that allow him to connect. So far, I couldnt see anything in the api that allow me to map them. The functionality I am asking for is the exact same found in estimote app in the listing view of devices. So each row, show the ibeacon packet like uuid/major and minor and clicking on it connects you.
What im trying to do now, is get the list of devices from estimote cloud. This will allow me to map the connectivity packet to packets data, then when intercepting other packets, i try to match the data to find the appropriate connectivity, based on data packets.
To be honest I m hoping there is a better way as this pose and overhead request and we need the data to be sync.
Also like what if 2 devices are broadcasting the same ibeacon packet how should i know which exact connectivity pack belong to. This pose another question does estimote allow to have 2 beacons broadcasting same signatures (UUID, major, Minor or Eddytone URL) ?
Btw I am using android, your help is really appreciated.
