Re: Device Type data in Beacon Bytes?

Also, here is no more space within the beacon to add this.

This is why I suggested to add "device type" to the next version of the beacon. There is a beacon version in the beacon, so this should be possible because beacon parsers will know how to act based on the version byte.

Innovations to mc-Studio will not be enough for our use case. Unless we can infer the device type of 5, 10, or 100 devices automatically through UDP, it will just be adding more complexity to deploy a multitude of devices simultaneously. Manual data entry and retrieval in mc-Studio is not solely what we want. Perhaps there can be an API release (perhaps over UDP, or whatever protocol mc-Studio uses) to garner this information through our own network applications.
