Estimote iOS app allows you to turn one of your iOS devices into a Virtual Beacon that acts like a physical Estimote Beacon.
Virtual Beacon limitations:
- you cannot modify the range or other settings
- UUID is fixed to 8492E75F-4FD6-469D-B132-043FE94921D8
- Major and Minor values are randomized on first launch and then remain fixed
- You can't use a virtual beacon with Estimote Indoor Location SDK.
Please note that only iOS devices can be turned into Virtual Beacons.
Is there a Virtual Sticker, too?
There is no Virtual Sticker feature in our app. However, Estimote SDK allows you to simulate nearable interactions in your own project. To learn how to do that, read:
I don’t have stickers yet. Can I start developing an app anyway?
