Low Energy Presence Detection System

Beacon Presence Detector System

I while ago I presented my over-all Internet of Things (IoT) project which encompassed from devices (things) to the analytic cloud-based system (Microsoft Azure).

This week we will take a deep dive into the Beacon presence detector subsystem. We will check out how an off-the-shelf beacon can be used to identify individuals as they enter and exit a space.

The solution utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy beacon, Raspberry Pi-s. MQTT Broker, Emic2 Text-to-Speech Processor, ESP8266, etc…

Although GrandPooBah is a wonderful guy, and the members love to hear him talk about myself. This meeting is not about him!!!! Some say GrandPoohBah ask advanced questions just to show how smart he is. (most just moan, enjoy the paradox).


Our objective is to be a resource for people that enjoy technologies of any kind. Today there is an amazing amount of information available. We want to facilitate/mentor those that have a thirst for knowledge (and enjoy the process).

Membership is open to all and free. Members are offered our entire library of learning materials. We have a broad series of subjects we have had fun with including Op-amps, (We built our own 3 mode controller), NE555 circuits (timers, drives etc), stepper motor controls (built our own controller), drives (Built our own DC drive), transistor theory, Electricity and more.

We encourage questions about any subject and help direct members to appropriate materials or training. We regularly encourage/supplement self training and seek facilitators.
