Our RECO Configuration App for Android has been completely renovated. Check out the below for the updated features!
New Feature 1. Complete Eddystone Support.
Former RECO Configuration App for Android did not support setting beacons in Eddystone format. However, with the new version of RECO Configuration App for Android, you can now set your RECO Beacons to send out Eddystone format packets in Android devices also.
New Feature 2. Device Firmware Update through Configuration App.
To set beacons in Eddystone format, RECO Beacon firmware should be updated from v2.0 to v3.0, and this can be also done through the Configuration App.(However, as the firmware v3.0 can only be applied to RECO Beacons whose serial number starts with 5, the old version RECO Beacons that has serial number starting with 140 do not support Eddystone format.)
As you can see from the screenshots above, the formerly non-existing ‘Broadcast Mode’ field appears after the firmware update to v3.0. This field lets you choose between iBeacon, Eddystone-UID, Eddystone-URL modes. The detailed values for each broadcasting mode can also be set from this screen.
New Feature 3. UI Improvements.
- 3-1. Beacon List UI
We’ve updated the beacon list UI so that you can check the beacon settings from the list screen, without having to connect to each device. The beacon list shows following information for each advertising mode.
For iBeacon mode:
MAC address, SN(Serial Number), RSSI, Battery Level(High/Low), TX(Transmitted Signal Power), Interval(Signal Transmission Interval) and UUID/Major/Minor
For Eddystone-UID mode:
MAC address, SN(Serial Number), RSSI, Battery Level(High/Low), TX(Transmitted Signal Power), Interval(Signal Transmission Interval) and UID
For Eddystone-URL mode:
MAC address, SN(Serial Number), RSSI, Battery Level(High/Low), TX(Transmitted Signal Power), Interval(Signal Transmission Interval) and URL
- 3-2. Beacon Sorting Option
Now you can sort the scanned beacons in two ways: by RSSI and by S/N. When sorted by RSSI, the beacon list arranged so that the closest beacon comes up first. When arranged by S/N, the beacon with smallest S/N is shown on top.
- 3-3. Convenient Passcode Input
We’ve heard many complaints about the short time window for entering the passcode in some Android devices. Thus, to enhance user experience, we have increased the passcode input time window. Also, now you don’t have to re-enter the passcode every time you try to change the settings of a beacon; typing it in once will let you change all the settings without the hassle.
You can see the passcode for each beacon when you register the beacon on RECO Member Center. Registration requires the S/N(Serial Number) and CC(Confirmation Code) of the beacon, which are attached at the back side of the beacon. You can make changes of beacon settings only when you have the passcode with you.
Also, diverse supporting materials such as configuration app download link and detailed instructions on the configuration app are available in RECO Member Center.
