This sensor allows us to handle WiFi conditions and events.


iOS 10 or later


com.awareframework.ios.sensor.wifi is available through CocoaPods.

  1. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:
pod 'com.awareframework.ios.sensor.wifi'
  1. Import com.awareframework.ios.sensor.wifi library into your source code.

    import com_awareframework_ios_sensor_wifi
  2. Turn ON Access WiFi Information capability on the Xcode project

Public functions


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


Class to hold the configuration of the sensor.


  • sensorObserver: WiFiObserver: Callback for live data updates.
  • 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_wifi")
  • dbHost: String Host for syncing the database. (default = null)

Data Representations

WiFi Scan Data

Field Type Description
bssid String currently connected access point MAC address
ssid String currently connected access point network name
deviceId String AWARE device UUID
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
timestamp Long Unixtime milliseconds since 1970
timezone Int WiFi of the device

Example usage

let wifiSensor = WiFiSensor.init(WifiSensor.Config().apply{config in
    config.sensorObserver = Observer()
    config.dbType = .REALM
    config.debug = true
    // more configuration ...
// To start the sensor

// To stop the sensor
// Implement an interface of WifiObserver
class Observer:WiFiObserver {
    func onWiFiAPDetected(data: WiFiScanData) {
        // Your code here ..

    func onWiFiDisabled() {
        // Your code here ..

    func onWiFiScanStarted() {
        // Your code here ..

    func onWiFiScanEnded() {
        // Your code here ..
