For those of you tinkering with your new kit of Estimote beacons there’s finally a way to get answers to your questions that doesn’t rely on Twitter or hanging out on GitHub.
I’m not sure I’d go asking for launch plans for their back-end fleet management and CMS system however: perhaps wisely, they’re so far being vague about an anticipated launch date, although they promise it’s in the works.
Elsewhere, Estimote, provided this little hint at how you might want to use the accelerometer chip that comes in an Estimote beacon:
“Yeap, there is an API for accel. Stick it to front doors or fridge and you got better context.”
Never thought of that before! A new way to trigger an interaction instead of region zones maybe? Open the door to the store and your app welcomes you in.
Be the Beacon!
