Beacon2Web is a simple beacon region and ranging application. It translates the detected information from a iBeacon and provides it to a given URL as a query string. This allows a large number of potential DIY applications to be built on top of iBeacon technology
To use this app, simply add a beacon with the relevant information and provide the web service URL to call.
There is also support to only detect for a beacon but NOT send the information to any URL.
Take note that for the URL to be succesfully connected, it needs to return a valid JSON file.
The information passed to the query string includes
- beacon UUID
- major number
- minor number
- proximity (Immediate, Near, Far, Entered, Exited)
- deviceUUID (generated upon install for web service to filter if its a valid device)
*Note that this app does not work well on an iPhone4S
