Chapter 7. Vendor SDKs – Buying and Configuring Beacons

In the previous chapters, we only utilized Apple's Core Location and Core Bluetooth frameworks to interact with beacons. Many vendors actually provide their own hardware beacons, a web-based API for managing beacons, and an SDK for manipulating their values over BLE.

In this chapter, we will explore Estimote beacons and the associated SDK and also ROXIMITY beacons before delving further into the ROXIMITY SDK and producing an app that allows you to configure the Estimote beacon UUID, major, and minor values.
