Yes, with our BKON brand Physical Web beacons, we wrote our firmware and designed our hardware to work perfectly with the Eddystone-URL frame type so because of this end-to-end management we are able to update battery state for our Physical Web beacons right on our Platform only using the Eddystone-URL frame type. QR and NFC-based TouchPoints™ will not show any battery state on the Platform because neither contains a battery.
With our Platform, there is no need for custom development or the use of complex API's to monitor your Physical Web beacons health. It's all handled at the platform level and updated every time your beacon is scanned. Even though our platform can be used to manage any brand of Physical Web beacon, the Platform level battery monitoring only works with our brand of beacons because of our firmware is required to pass the battery state from the beacon hardware up to the Platform.
There is no longer a need to keep your beacons in connectable mode and expose them to the outside world to collect battery state. Our beacons ship pre-configured as non-connectable, Eddystone-URL frame type so they're ready to go as soon as you receive them. Try it out for yourself at https://bkon.com.
