Unstable iBeacon Configuration
I’ve been using this app to configure Radius Chip beacons with the iBeacon protocol. The app makes it extremely difficult to set the measured power of the beacon. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn’t. The app does not make it clear to the user when the measured power is properly configured on the beacon. This bug is a concern due to the fact that iOS uses the measured power to properly calculate distance to the beacon.
The only way I was able to verify when the measured power was applied successfully was to use a custom built app using Apple’s CoreLocation to range the beacon. Once the accuracy(distance) averaged to 1m at the RSSI I set in the RadBeacon app, I knew it was successful.
App is great
Much more configurable items than the older app, Radbeacon, eg, even channels.
One suggestion is for key management: add a load key function. I can create a key but cannot share it with other phones. So then if I configure a beacon using the key on one phone, I can configure it later with another phone. There is no button to load a key that is sent from another person.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
