Many articles are explaining how to make out an esp32 a beacon. It is never explained how to receive from a eddystone beacon (example: ruuvi-beacon+) the data with a ble esp32 as client. To show the temperature, humidity etc. what was send from the eddystone beacon. Also an explanation how the beacon Data is send to a website and is shown with the data coming from the beacon on this website. I have a beacon from ruuvi which was a kickstarter project. https://tag.ruuvi.com/
I’m familiar with the RUUVITAG, but I think it’s too expensive (it costs me more than $100 for 3 beacons). I’m also not sure if there’s enough demand to use that sensor (other readers that also have that exact beacon).
For those reasons, I don’t plan to use it, but I’ll create a project that shows how you can create your own BLE beacon sensor with similar functionalities that works with batteries… (it might even be on a PCB).
After that, I definitely want to create a project that shows how to decode BLE data from commercial Beacons. Do you have suggestions about other alternatives to the RUUVITAG?
