Rssi or MeasuredPower values if the Beacon is off

Hi guys,

I’m trying to add beacons to my List View only if it’s active, and I wrote the condition as follows,

if beacon.getRssi != 0 then add to list.

Is that correct? Are the Rssi or measuredpower values really 0 when the beacon is flipped to sleep?? If not, could you suggest a method to add only active beacons


Are you using ranging to discover beacons?

If so, then when it goes to sleep, it gets the same treatment as if you went out of range. (Because in both cases the iPhone stops “hearing” from it.) That is, it disappears completely from the didRangeBeacons after a few seconds.

Thanks a lot for the info!
