How to enable Estimote Monitoring?

Follow

With Estimote Monitoring, the ultimate goal is to improve the reliability of enter/exit reporting. We apply complex math on top of a ton of research and experience related to beacon detection. The latest version of the Estimote Monitoring also addresses pre-configuration hassle and lifts the region monitoring limit.

Estimote Monitoring works out of the box for both Proximity and Location beacons shipped after mid-September 2017. If you’ve got your beacons before, you can easily switch! Learn how to do it and explore the next steps, below.

    I purchased Proximity Beacons a couple of weeks ago, but I don't see an option to turn on Estimote Monitoring. Does this mean I have first generation Proximity Beacons?

    With iOS app version 2.30.7 using my Location beacons, I do not see the Broadcasting tab in step 4. I still see the Packets tab. I think a step or two is missing.

    I'm in the same situation as Jacob with respect to not seeing the Broadcasting tab. I'm using iOS app v2.30.7 and Hardware Version G1.8 Proximity Beacons.

    Joe, Jacob - could you guys please send us screenshots from your app at contact@estimote.com? Please include also your order IDs so that we can investigate. G1.8 is the latest iteration of Proximity Beacons and, along with Location Beacons, they're fully compatible with Estimote Monitoring. Email us and we'll have a look. Thanks!

    Hi everyone, it was a bug and it should be fixed in the new version of iOS app (2.30.8). It's available on the App Store already, please make sure you update your app and try again.
