Configuring Beacon templates

The Beacon templates are used to provision and configure new beacons at deployment time. Once the beacon is provisioned the template changes will not effect the beacon configuration. After the beacon has been provisioned and connected to a BluFi all beacon configuration updates will come from the cloud.

By default the cloud will create a set of default Beacon templates that may be used "as is" to provision the new beacons. Additionally, you may choose to modify the default templates or create new ones. 

Deployment and Provisioning

BluFi provisioning

During the BluFi deployment/provisioning you will use the previously configured WiFi profiles to connect the BluFi to the cloud.  

Here is a step-by-step instruction video for BluFi provisioning in the cloud.

Note: You may want to change the video quality under the "Gear" menu, 720p or greater is recommended.


Beacon provisioning

During the Beacon deployment/provisioning you will use the previously configured templates to get the beacon configured and registered with the cloud.
