Request: Broadcast Temperature on Proximity Beacons

Is there posible to add Temperature Broadcast to Proximity Beacons via firmware update, just like Location Beacons do?

Sadly, no. We have completely rewritten the firmware for Location Beacons, to allow things like broadcasting sensor data alongside other packets (e.g., iBeacon), and because of that we can’t issue a simple firmware update for Proximity Beacons to add such a feature.

In software development, sometimes you just have to start from scratch, and that’s what we decided to do here, rather than force backward compatibility and therefore end up with a slightly worse product. Hope you, a fellow software developer, can understand.
