Requirements

iOS 10 or later

Installation

Add NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription and NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription keys into Info.plist

If you need persistent background ranging for beacons, you’ll need to activate the Background Modes capability (Location Updates) for your application.

com.aware.ios.sensor.ibeacon is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'com.awareframework.ios.sensor.ibeacon'

Import com.awareframework.ios.sensor.ibeacon library into your source code.

import com_awareframework_ios_sensor_ibeacon

Public functions

IBeaconSensor

  • init(config:ibeaconSensor.Config?) : Initializes the IBeacon sensor with the optional configuration.
  • start(): Starts the IBeacon sensor with the optional configuration.
  • stop(): Stops the service.

IBeaconSensor.Config

Class to hold the configuration of the sensor.

Fields

  • regions: Array<CLBeaconRegion> Regions that you use to detect Bluetooth beacons.
  • sensorObserver: IBeaconObserver? A sensor observer for monitoring sensor events
  • enabled: Boolean Sensor is enabled or not. (default = false)
  • debug: Boolean enable/disable logging to Logcat. (default = false)
  • label: String Label for the data. (default = "")
  • deviceId: String Id of the device that will be associated with the events and the sensor. (default = "")
  • dbEncryptionKey Encryption key for the database. (default = null)
  • dbType: Engine Which db engine to use for saving data. (default = Engine.DatabaseType.NONE)
  • dbPath: String Path of the database. (default = "aware_ibeacon")
  • dbHost: String Host for syncing the database. (default = null)

Broadcasts

Fired Broadcasts

  • IBeaconSensor.ACTION_AWARE_IBEACON fired when ibeacon saved data to db after the period ends.

Received Broadcasts

  • IBeaconSensor.ACTION_AWARE_IBEACON_START: received broadcast to start the sensor.
  • IBeaconSensor.ACTION_AWARE_IBEACON_STOP: received broadcast to stop the sensor.
  • IBeaconSensor.ACTION_AWARE_IBEACON_SYNC: received broadcast to send sync attempt to the host.
  • IBeaconSensor.ACTION_AWARE_IBEACON_SET_LABEL: received broadcast to set the data label. Label is expected in the IBeaconSensor.EXTRA_LABEL field of the intent extras.

Data Representations

iBeacon Data

Contains the raw sensor data.

Field Type Description
uuid String The unique ID of the beacons being targeted.
major Int16 The value identifying a group of beacons. (16bit)
minor Int16 The value identifying a specific beacon within a group. (16bit)
rssi Int The received signal strength of the beacon, measured in decibels.
identifier String The identifer of the beacon.
proximity Int The relative distance to the beacon. (0=unknown, 1=immediate, 2=near, 3=far)
accuracy Double The accuracy of the proximity value, measured in meters from the beacon.
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
deviceId String AWARE device UUID
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
timestamp Int64 Unixtime milliseconds since 1970
timezone Int Timezone of the device
os String Operating system of the device (ex. android)

iBeacon Region State Data

Field Type Description
identifier String The identifer of the beacon.
state Int The current state of the device with reference to a region. (0=unknown, 1= inside, 2=outside)
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
deviceId String AWARE device UUID
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
timestamp Int64 Unixtime milliseconds since 1970
timezone Int Timezone of the device
os String Operating system of the device (ex. android)

iBeacon Region Event Data

Field Type Description
identifier String The identifer of the beacon.
state Int The event of region enter and exit events (0=exit, 1=enter)
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
deviceId String AWARE device UUID
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
timestamp Int64 Unixtime milliseconds since 1970
timezone Int Timezone of the device
os String Operating system of the device (ex. android)

Example usage

Import ibeacon sensor library (com_aware_ios_sensor_ibeacon) to your target class.

import com_awareframework_ios_sensor_ibeacon

Generate an ibeacon sensor instance and start/stop the sensor.

let ibeacon = IBeaconSensor(IBeaconSensor.Config().apply{config in
    let uuid =  UUID.init(uuidString: "D8219342-6770-4AA4-8075-02E4A10084D9")
    let regionA = CLBeaconRegion(proximityUUID:uuid!, identifier: "Test")
    config.addRegion(regionA)
    config.sensorObserver = Observer()
})

ibeacon?.start()

ibeacon?.stop()
class Observer:IBeaconObserver{
    func didDetermineState(region: IBeaconRegionStateData) {
        // Your code here
    }

    func didRangeBeacons(beacons: [IBeaconData]) {
        // Your code here
    }

    func didEnterRegion(region: IBeaconRegionEventData) {
        // Your code here
    }

    func didExitRegion(region: IBeaconRegionEventData) {
        // Your code here
    }
}
