1. General example, for example:  "Proximity Reporter" needs to be BLE connected to the IOT toolbox, so that the data can be obtained.
   When I operate Beacon, I found that Beacon does not need BLE connection, as long as someone broadcasts, you can get the information in IOT toolbox.
   Is this statement correct ?
2. In the beacon program, which function will send Beacon data?

Hi Daniel, I hope you're doing well!


1.- A Bluetooth Beacon does not need to establish connection to get information. BLE beacons rely on advertising packets to transmit information, and are non-connectable.


2.- In the BLE Beacon SDK example, the information transmitted by the beacon can be changed by changing the value of adData1, located in the app_config.c source file of the project.


Please let me know if you need any more information.


Best regards,
