i’d like to be able to tell the ha app the bt device is stationary so that i can define a zone associated with the beacon and updating my devices zone location when i’m within range of it. i’d also to tell it a beacon is a mobile beacon, like for example a beacon in my backpack or on my bicycle, or in my wallet, or on my keys.
i know ha doesn’t currently have a great infrastructure for device tracking, ideally they add a ” tracked devices” section that is basically a clone of the “person” tracking section. seeing that the “vote” button didn’t show up after i posted, i’m guessing i’ve put this feature request in the wrong section, sorry about that mods please move it if it should be in another place. contribute to home-assistant/android development by creating an account on github.
hi, i was hoping to use esphome on some esp32’s to setup room presence detection by integrating with owntracks and ha. the problem is, there doesn’t seem to be a way to turn-down the power on the esp32 ble transmittor using esphome, so owntracks detects that it can see all 3 beacons.and therefore can’t tell ha what room i’m in. one esp32 on the top floor, one esp32 on the ground floor. i’m anxious to see how accurate i’ll be able to get the tracking. with an automation i toggle the input_boolean-entities to keep track of which beacons have entering/exited.
there doesn’t appear to be a way to reduce the transmit power of the esp32 devices (yet). although i have home assistant companion installed on the devices of my family members. as i’ve a profession of developer, i was able to make the necessary changes in esphome to set the ble tx power and upload it to my devices. this is the pull request i’ve just created: added “tx_power” parameter to esp32_ble_beacon + minor fix by grumpymeow · pull request #3299 · esphome/esphome (github.com) it seems to be working ok (once i figured out how to pull down the pr). on the lowest tx power i almost get room accuracy. unfortunatly one floor down (directly under) the given room, the beacon is also detected.
a “ble beacon”, on the other hand, only broadcasts it’s little info packet one way. it does not listen or react to anything from your device ( this tracker discovers new devices on boot and in regular intervals and tracks bluetooth low-energy devices periodically based on interval_seconds value. i’d like to have the home assistant companion app able to track bluetooth devices, specifically bluetooth beacons (like one from an esphome device, home assistant ble tracker, home assistant ble tracker, ibeacons home assistant, esphome ble tracker, home assistant bluetooth speaker.
