Milwaukee Tick - is it an iBeacon?

Hey, anybody know anything about the Milwaukee Tick? $10 for an iBeacon at Home Depot seems like a nice deal. I'll probably get one next time I go to Home Depot just to play with, but the point would be more integration than just their app.

Re: Milwaukee Tick - is it an iBeacon?

I bought one today. It is an iBeacon. I only have one, so I don't know if the UUIDs differ between them. The major and minor numbers are both 0. I don't know if they can be changed.

It also advertises a few bytes of data with Milwaukee's manufacturer code 0x0165, and the service UUID a3e68a83-4c4d-4778-bd0a-829fb434a7a1.

They likely all have the same uuid.

Unfortunately, my Home Depot here in CS says they're $30 each, not $10, which makes office depot's Magic Finder

for $13 each a much better deal unless you need the weatherproofing.

Re: Milwaukee Tick - is it an iBeacon?

the tiles are also wether proof ..
the xy also when they are new. after you replace the battery mine do not look so nice anymore.. still have not figured out how to crack them open without damaging the device

Just noticed that Amazon has the Tick for $15.99USD with Prime shipping. Much better than the $30 Home Depot is charging locally.
