Hello,

Are there any important changes in ubeacon firmware 2.2.0 in comparison with 2.1.0, which can affect the behaviour of mesh network?

Thanks
Rafal

    Hi Rafal,

    Are you experiencing problems ? Piotr here in cc might answer you questions. I think if I remember well that there were some changes.

    Best regards,

    Hi François,
    Thank you for quick answer. I am having some issues when trying to receive mesh messages on mobile device (both iOS & Android) when using beacons with 2.1.0 firmware. It works fine with 2.2.0 firmware.
    Could you tell me if it’s possible to upgrade the beacons firmware?

    Thanks
    Rafal

    Hi Rafal,

    Yes that’s what I feared we made some big changes at one point. It is possible to upgrade the firmware. However, the team has not fully finished documenting the procedure and is quite busy on several projects, I wonder if it would not be simpler that we send you beacons with the right latest firmware. How many beacons do you have with firmware 2.1.0 ? We could ship you with Fedex and in exchange you will send us back the 2.1.0 beacons.

    Also we will post an upgrade of the Mesh libraries SDKs today or next week with some additional improvements. Also have you checked this https://github.com/Ubudu/rPi-uBeacon-gateway <https://github.com/Ubudu/rPi-uBeacon-gateway> this is a pretty cool thing. We have btw in stocks of uBeacon mesh with integrated GPIO raspberry connector and associated boxing. Are you interested in one of those ?

    Best regards,

    François

    Hi François,

    That would be great. We’ve got one set (3 beacons) with firmware 2.1.0. If you could send us the new set of 3 with latest firmware and we will send the 2.1.0 beacons set back.

    I CC’ed Gregor who made the purchase of the beacons.

    Please let Gregor or me know if you need any address or order details.

    Also thank you for the offer of “uBeacon mesh with integrated GPIO raspberry connector”. We probably won’t be interested at the moment but we might be in future.

    Best regards,
    Rafal

    What kind of problem are you experiencing ?

    Could you double check by connecting to one of this beacons with the manager app that the firmware is 2.1.0, just to make sure.

    Hi François,

    I double checked and they are definitely 2.1.0 (I’ve attached screenshots from manager app).

    The problem I am having with 2.1.0 beacons is that I am not receiving any mesh messages on my mobile device when sending:

    PC -> UART Beacon -> Mesh Network -> Mobile App (Android & iOS)

    This works with the other 2.2.0 beacon set.

    Thanks

    Hi Francois,

    Please find order confirmation from order that has beacons with old firmware installed.

    If you think that the easiest is to send the new set with firmware 2.2 installed than please do so ASAP, as we need to configure them and sent them to our colleagues in the US. Can you also please arrange with the delivery company to pick up the old set.

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Gregor

    Hi Gregor

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Ok we will be shipping them asap. For the old set it is less urgent indeed.

    BR,

    François
