    Great stuff !

    Where can I find the sample code for this ?

    Is there a sample on how to create your own beacon supporting the GATT (or RFCOMM) communication ?

    Hi,

    thanks for this demo.

    Is there something changed for the trigger?  I already tried out a small app and I thought I can only filter by the Company ID (local name is not always supported). What, when I want to look for more than one beacon at the same time (with different Company IDs)?
    Until now, I did not found a solution.

    Another question comes up, because I found very cheap keyfinder beacons in different stores. But these beacons stop the communication after a short time, when they are not paired with one device. Can I communicate with these beacons with the existing functions in an UWP app?

    Great session. Thanks.
    When will it be possible to use the Bluetooth LE APIs for standard C# programs (non universal apps)?
