Using the Kontakt.io Panel, you can configure your Beacons. This allows you to change information such as the Beacon identifiers (Proximity UUID, Major, Minor, Namespace ID, Instance ID), Transmission Power, Advertising interval, notes, etc.
You can also use the kontakt.io profiles to apply one of our preset profiles or your own custom configuration, to a single beacon, or to multiple beacons at once.
It's important to note that once new settings are created on your Web Panel, your Bluetooth Beacons will not be updated until they're synced using our management app (available for iOS and Android) or SDK, as described here:
Click on Beacons on the panel header and then on Beacons List.
This will open the list view for all your Bluetooth Beacons.
Configuring individual Beacons
Clicking on the device unique Id or on the edit link to the right of the Beacon row (marked below), you can set properties for individual Beacons.
If you want to edit multiple devices at once, please follow this tutorial instead.
In this view you can review the basic information of your beacon and also change the general settings, where some useful presets are available, like our recommended settings or the energy saver. Our you can simply use the values of your choice for the Interval and Tx Power. It is also possible to add notes for your beacons.
Here you can also change the profile of your device or enable them all to use Packet interleaving.
Pending configurations and updating physical Beacons
When you change Beacon configurations or apply new profiles to your Beacons, the new settings will be in a pending state until the Beacons comes into range of a device running our software.
In both the list view and single beacon view, you'll see an indicator if your changes are in a pending state.
Your new values will be displayed in red. Values currently active on the Beacon will be stricken through.
Canceling a pending configuration.
To cancel a pending configuration, in case you no longer need to apply it, you can delete it by clicking cancel config link available in the orange box near the top right corner of the settings view of the device (or devices) for which you created it.
Synchronizing changes to your Beacons
Once you create the configuration in the Web panel, you will see the following message:
"Some properties aren't synchronized with your device. Please update your device's settings with the Kontakt.io Admin App"
This means that you need to apply the changes to the physical beacon. To update your Beacons with your new configuration, you'll need to get in range of the Beacon with a device running our iOS or Android Admin App.
If you are looking to create configurations for multiple beacons, please follow this tutorial.
