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.

Works, but has its challenges I'm using this app on a 4.4.4 device (original Moto X) and find that, while it does work, it produces quite a few extraneous state changes. For example, I set up a Tasker profile that would fire off an SMS to IFTTT every time it detected a state change, logging a line in a spreadsheet with the time and the state (connected or disconnected). In one twelve hour period, with the phone sitting 4 inches from the beacon and without moving either, 26 state changes were logged.

Pointless without estimote beacons Its been many months since you were promising other beacons being supported but it seems there is nothing included yet. Maybe try the newest Altbeacon library, which includes a framework to identify any vendors beacon?
