The Cisco Meraki location services have been updated to support Bluetooth beacon detection. This makes it a great solution for asset tracking, way-finding and location aware services. As a result, I have updated the custom Node-RED Meraki CMX node to consume this enhanced telemetry data.

What’s new?

  • Bluetooth detection and filtering, using a new “Radio Type” selector.
  • Created two outputs, Data and Status, to easily manage and isolate observation data from API status updates.
  • Squashed some bugs
  • New example flows, including observation splitting and Worldmap
