Has anyone been able to get a beacon to trigger tasker events? I just bought two radbeacon dots in hope of putting them in different rooms and have tasker set a variable based on which one I'm closer to, but I can't seem to get it working
Ok, so I found a way to make this work. Download Beacon Radar from the play store. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.beaconradar. Sent every beacon to broadcast an intent when they're visible and take note of the Mac address. In tasker, create a profile based off of intent received. Then create a variable, I call mine %ROOM. Set it to the room name you desire and add an if condition. Set the if condition to %mac matches the mac address of the beacon in that room. From there just adjust the transmit power on the beacons so they're input visible in that particular room and your good to go.
