Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Using geofencing, part of Programming the Internet of Things with iOS.
- Geofencing is the ability to detect…when your iBeacons enter or exit a region.…It's called Region monitoring.…It only works when Background App Refresh is enabled,…so you can't use Region monitoring…if you've specified that you're only gonna use…the location "When In Use" attribute.…So it has to work for both "When In Use" and "Always."…That's because it uses Background App Refresh to determine…where you are relative to the beacons,…and as I mentioned before, it sometimes can take…up to two minutes to discover that you've moved away…out of the beacon range.…
Because they don't wanna give you constant notifications…as you're moving around in a store or a museum…or an industrial setting that,…"Hey, there's beacons present!"…So you wanna find out that when you get there,…after it's certain that there are beacons,…and after you've left, when you're certain…that there aren't any more beacons within range.…Range is in tens of meters,…and in and out of range detection, as I mentioned,…can take times measured in minutes.…
