While most beacon manufacturers give you…the ability to update the UUID to a value that you decide,…hardcoding beacon data like this can be very fixed…and would essentially require an app update…each time you wanted to modify the beacon data…that you're seeking to monitor.…This isn't really an efficient solution for our needs.…In many instances, you'll wanna use a web server…to house all of your beacon data.…While we won't go into the details of how this would work,…this is a general flow of how this…
