Scheduling Beacon's broadcast hours -- remote management feature?

hi ,

Do we have a " good faith estimate" of timeline for release of remote management of scheduling proximity beacon’s broadcast hours ? ( a k a : ability to turn off beacons at “night” if our location is closed ) ?


It’s already implemented in SDK 4.0 and in Location Beacons, which are due to start shipping at the end of this month.

My question was on " Proximity Beacons" :)-

If the implementation backward compatible to Proximity beacons OR it wont work for Proximity beacons ?

We are more than half way implementing our solution and do not want to switch beacons !

Sadly, we have no plans to backport scheduled advertising into Proximity Beacons at this time.

If your implementation uses iBeacon or Eddystone, then good news though—Location Beacons broadcast the same iBeacon and Eddystone packets that Proximity Beacons do, so switching beacons doesn’t require any changes in your code.

Thanks for the clarification.

Due to cost constraints we may remain with the existing proximity beacons unless Estimote offers a beacon exchange program or discounts for existing customers.


Smart Power Mode should have you covered anyway (:

And feel free to email our business team if you want,, hopefully they’ll be able to provide you with a satisfactory quote!
