    I got a short question about iBeacons:
    Is it possible to know how many smartphones/tablets are in the neighborhood of one iBeacon?
    I want to display this information in a database or portal.

    Sorry, don't know how to help you. If researching it on Google doesn't provide you with the answers you need, then perhaps nobody knows!

    Ibeacons functionality


    Been working with ibeacons for just over a year. In theory the answer to your question is surely yes; I beacons use bluetooth, and you could with the right software look for their signature; although ironically I read in other forums that Apple are looking to try to disable this functionality quietly...4 we're told security reasons...
