The iGS02E gateway listens for beacons, gets their advertising data and forwards it on to your server or an IoT server via TCP, HTTP(S) or MQTT including AWS IoT. It can be used to feed back-end systems that report on the presence or absence of iBeacon or Eddystone beacons or act on beacon sensor (e.g. accelerometer, temperature, light, humidity) data.
The gateway connects to your network using an Ethernet connection and is managed via a web browser interface (See iGS01 for the same functionality connected via WiFi). The iGS02E can also be managed via Telnet commands from other hardware (or a human).
The gateway is powered via the included standard micro-USB cable. This needs to be plugged into a smartphone charger (not supplied) or any host device that can provide at least 500mA. Can be powered over Ethernet (PoE) using the INGICS PoE splitter - not included.
The gateway sends data of the form:
$<report type>,<beacon MAC address>,<gateway MAC address>,<rssi of the beacon>,<advertising data>,<unix epoch timestamp>\r\n
(The unix epoch timestamp requires an NTP server to be configured)
For HTTP (POST), the data can be set to be sent immediately or every 'request interval' in seconds. The host/ip, port, URL path (the part after the port/host), an optional http username/password and an optional extra header can be specified. See the above image for further details.
It's also possible to throttle the data so that only the latest record is retained and sent every interval.
For MQTT/MQTTS, the host, port, username, password and a root CA cert can be provided.
The sent data is Bluetooth-advertising format agnostic. The gateway doesn't know or care if it's iBeacon, Eddystone or something else. It just passes on the Bluetooth LE advertising data. However, there is a facility to filter beacons by RSSI and advertising data pattern.
Detects up to 70 beacons per second when using MQTT. Range depends on the range of the beacon(s) used.
The unit has a wide operating temperature of -20C to 60C and has an operating current of 190mA.
