    All beacons equipped with temperature sensors, like Bluetooth Tags S18-3, can broadcast Kontakt.io Telemetry packets, that include temperature readings. You can enable this packet like any other, either directly in the Administration App, or in the Web Panel and then just use the App to deliver the config.

    Reading these packets in your app is possible thanks to our Mobile SDKs, e.g. on iOS this data is a part of KTKNearbyDevice: http://kontaktio.github.io/kontakt-ios-sdk/Documentation/html/Classes/KTKNearbyDevice.html#//api/name/telemetry and http://kontaktio.github.io/kontakt-ios-sdk/Documentation/html/Classes/KTKNearbyDeviceTelemetry.html

    So I need a programmer / developer to sort this out for me?

    Apologies I have zero tech skills and was hoping to be able to attach the tag and demonstrate to our client how it could be used to read temp via the iOS app
     
    Plug and play solution.
     
    Can you suggest anyone?

    What is the easiest solution for us?

    Do we need to purchase the "infrastructure management" or "location engine" to be able to do what we need to?

    Can you give me a step by step description of how to

    Beacons are not what you'd qualify as a consumer product - it's not an of-the-shelf turn-key solution, but rather a component to use when you're making your own product.

    As for configuring your beacons, this article should help you understand the process: https://support.kontakt.io/hc/en-gb/articles/201607891-Configuring-Beacons-in-the-Kontakt-io-Proximity-Web-Panel

    The Location Engine subscription is necessary to make Gateways detect your beacons and stream the data about their presence and sensor data. But then you would need to implement a WebSocket/MQTT client to read these streams and present the data in a human-readable form.
