Hi I was wondering if anybody was using Bluetooth beacons in their home automation setups? Some early reading suggest that they are quite flexible and not too expensive (£30) for a reasonable long range water proof one. I'm looking to see if I can develop a solution to replace geo fencing for opening gates or setting home modes. This is what I'm thinking .... Beacon located by gate or front of house User approached house and phone picks up beacon (unique) Beacon app on phone fires off url that's picked up by hc2 ( perhaps through IFTTT) HC2 executes action Mad, Crazy, or just might work ?
