Node Beacon Scanner

If you are developing using Node, there’s a Node.js module, node-beacon-scanner, that allows you to scan Bluetooth beacon packets and parse the packet data.

While Node tends to be associated with Linux, servers and hence web sites, Node can also be used on small single board computers such as the Raspberry Pi. Hence, this module provides an easy way to scan for Beacons and other Bluetooth devices.

The module supports iBeacon and Eddystone and outputs the MAC address, local name, transmit power level, RSSI and the iBeacon/Eddystone specific attributes.
