Re: Sending Beacon Data Over MQTT

There is a large difference in power consumption between sending a beacon or sending to the MQTT server. It is probably 20-times lower power. To lower the power you should limit the connection time to 5 minutes. There are beacon commands to fill the 8 bytes beacon message. See the user manual for the commands, just search beacon in the pdf. Also read the white paper about beaconing which describes the format.
