    Hi Harold,

    I’m working for a company which is creating a smartphone app for iOS and Android. We would like to source a Bluetooth LE beacon and API which could:
    – identify when a user was close-by
    – send the user data

    Are you aware of any companies which provide this?

    Regards,

    Richard Johnson

    Hi again,

    A slight variation …

    – the beacon simply sends a message: “this is my ID”
    – we need a way to program or assign the ID of the beacon

    Any assistance you can provide would be gratefully received.

    Regards,

    Richard

  3. Hi Richard, any Classic Bluetooth device or BLE device can change it “name” all the time. Based on that you can catch information without pairing. Anyhow, Bluetooth LE has maybe a kind of broadcasting in its specification. If it is specified it does not mean that it is supported by the BLE chip vendors or in the smart-phones on iOS or Android. I will have a look and ask some business friends.
    Nevertheless, a BLE beacon screwed to the wall you can get from at least one of my business partners. Their new beacon is supporting Bluetooth LE, ANT or BLE and ANT in the same time. I will come back, as soon I have further information. Parallel, I will make a sketch how such a system could look like.
    BTW, where do you come from?

  4. Hi, Can you please provide more information like where we can buy the Bluetooth Proximity Tags or if there is any sample source code for connecting to BLE 4.0 for sumsung galaxy phones.
    Best,
