  • Name: Enter a name for the beacon.
  • Type: Use the dropdown list to select the beaconing mode/format:
    • iBeacon: A simple beaconing format
      • Automatically start with presentation: Check this box to activate the beacon when the presentation begins. You can use commands to enable or disable beacons while the presentation is running.
      • UUID: A string representation of a UUID, which can be in 16-bit, 32-bit, or 128-bit format. A 16-bit UUID must be exactly four hex digits with no punctuation; a 32-bit UUID must be exactly eight hex digits with no punctuation; and a 128-bit UUID must be punctuated exactly as follows: "cd7b6f81-f738-4cad-aebf-d2a2ea36d996".
      • Major: An integer specifying the 2-byte Major value (0 to 65535)
      • Minor: An integer specifying the 2-byte Minor value (0 to 65535)
      • TxPower: An integer value that corresponds to the measurement of the Tx power level (in dBm) at 0 meters. The default value is -19, which corresponds to a level of -60dBm at 1 meter. The recommended calibration practice is to measure the RSSI in a circle at 1 meter from the beacon, then add 41 to the average measured signal strength to get the TxPower value: For example, measuring a -65dBm RSSI at 1 meter yields a TxPower value of -24.
    • Eddystone URL: The Eddystone-URL format
      • Automatically start with presentation: Check this box to activate the beacon when the presentation begins. You can use commands to enable or disable beacons while the presentation is running.
      • URL: The URL to encapsulate in the advertisement packet. 
      • TxPower: An integer value that corresponds to the measurement of the Tx power level (in dBm) at 0 meters. The default value is -19, which corresponds to a level of -60dBm at 1 meter. The recommended calibration practice is to measure the RSSI in a circle at 1 meter from the beacon, then add 41 to the average measured signal strength to get the TxPower value: For example, measuring a -65dBm RSSI at 1 meter yields a TxPower value of -24.
    • Eddystone UID: The Eddystone-UID format
      • Automatically start with presentation: Check this box to activate the beacon when the presentation begins. You can use commands to enable or disable beacons while the presentation is running.
      • Namespace: A 610-byte value expressed as 12 20 hexadecimal digits
      • Instance: A 106-byte value expressed as 20 12 hexadecimal digits
      • TxPower: An integer value that corresponds to the measurement of the Tx power level (in dBm) at 0 meters. The default value is -19, which corresponds to a level of -60dBm at 1 meter. The recommended calibration practice is to measure the RSSI in a circle at 1 meter from the beacon, then add 41 to the average measured signal strength to get the TxPower value: For example, measuring a -65dBm RSSI at 1 meter yields a TxPower value of -24.
