    Thanks for your response, Ola. From the article I figured that functionality offered by Estimote Cloud is limited to tracking all the beacons online. It doesn't offer features like analytics, settings and content management, which would be added in the future. I got confused by the point when you mentioned that cloud only supports iOS. Can you elaborate further on this? Since it's purely a web based system, does it have a dependency if the client is iOS or Android? I wouldn't think so, but it'd help if you can explain this. May be I'm missing something here.

    Hi Asheesh,

    You can access Estimote Cloud in the web easily at cloud.estimote.com. However, at this point all the features related to this platform are included only in our iOS app and SDK. Hope it's clearer now!

    Cheers.

    Hi,
    It's definitely on our roadmap but we don't have a specific date for this feature. There’s a number of great 3rd party platforms designed to work well with Estimote Beacons. For simple solutions, Bubble does a fantastic job with tagging beacons with URLs (http://discoverbubble.com/), and if you’re looking for something more sophisticated, try Rover (http://www.roverlabs.co/), Beaconstac (http://www.beaconstac.com/) or Pushmote (https://pushmote.com/).

    Best,

    Hi !
    I am doing some research for my organization production floor and I think I can use Estimote beacons. The issue here is that we want to use it through our own cloud rather than Estimote cloud. Is there any documentations or tutorials how to configure the Estimote beacons.

    Is something I need to build my own app and then configure it to local cloud?

    Please let me know.

    Hi Satyendra,

    Sure, you can integrate Estimote Beacons with your own backend or a 3rd party solution like for example Rover (http://www.roverlabs.co/) or Pushmote (https://pushmote.com/). If you want to build it on your own, you'll find some useful stuff here: https://community.estimote.com/hc/en-us/articles/202254358-How-do-I-build-my-first-app-

    Cheers.

    Over time Cloud will be gradually updated. At this time it only supports iOS.

    What does this mean? That the APIs to access Estimote Cloud is available only for iOS?

    Hi John,

    Yes - at this moment, Estimote app and SDK are integrated with Estimote Cloud only in the iOS versions.

    Cheers.

    Hi Folks,

    I would like my app to have access a user's beacons if they provide their Estimote credentials. Is there an API endpoint to support this feature? Maybe I'm not seeing it.

    Please check our Infrastructure Sharing feature. It enables you to share beacons IDs with partners through Estimote Cloud: http://blog.estimote.com/post/111947083715/open-your-beacon-network-estimote-cloud-now
