iBeaconTasker


Plugin for Tasker / Locale (paid apps)

People have left low ratings because I have not made it clear enough that this is a Tasker/Locale - both paid apps - plugin. Please be aware, I did not create those apps, I do not make any money off Their purchase. Please do not leave low ratings because this is a plugin for a paid app you do not wish to purchase.

iBeaconTasker combines the awesome power of Estimote iBeacon technology, with the endless capabilities of Tasker and Locale for Android.

iBeaconTasker is a conditional plugin for the automation apps Tasker and Locale. With iBeaconTasker, use your Estimote brand iBeacons to trigger any of the hundreds of possible actions. The plugin is accessed via the Profile tab, under State > Plugin.

This app currently only works with Estimote brand iBeacons. Support for others will be coming in the future.

Here are a few quick examples

-iBeaconTasker combines with AutoHue to turn your lights on when you enter a room, and turn them back off when you exit

-iBeaconTasker combines with Macronos for Sonos to
+Turn your music off or on when you leave and enter rooms.
+Turn your volume up as you exit a room allowing you to continue to hear it wherever you go.
+Have your music jump zones to follow you throughout your home.

-iBeaconTasker combines with some of the built in actions to remind you to lock the doors when you leave your home.

Could be great Why is this app locked down to estimote? There are tons of apps that can read most ibeacon so it does not make sense that his app does not. Please add general ibeacon support as a paid option...

Cool! Cool app! Using this to trigger some home automation tasks within tasker. Can't wait to get my Myo armband to use in combination with nearby beacons to trigger automation! I second the request to use distance from each beacon as a setting.

ibeacon works great! I can now use my estimote to setup tasks to control sonos and lifx lights in my home! Thanks!

Works as advertized Installed the plugin into Tasker (on N5), created a new profile based on the plugin and it saw all three Estimote beacons. Saved and it fired immediately. For the price, FREE, hard to beat. I'm not too familiar with the distance calculations over RSSI reading of beacons, but having the ability to set the signal strength to trigger would be a good feature. E.g., not only trigger on if it sees a beacon, but if the beacon is over a certain S/N ratio (or under if moving away from it). EDIT: I just realized that the power setting can be programmed via the Estimote application. Dropped it to minimum levels and working like a champ! Looking forward to putting these to good use!

Works great, except I'm seeing some nasty battery drain I installed this app because the built-in BT Near monitor in Tasker wasn't working consistently with my Estimote beacon. The iBeaconTasker plugin works great in terms of tracking when I was getting in and out of range of the beacon, but it would prevent my Nexus 5 from ever going to sleep, resulting in some pretty bad battery drain.
