Switch to Eddystone for EEK beacon

Physical Web can’t detect my beacon. But the EEK app can detect it.
How can I get the Physical Web app to read it, so I can modify URL?


Our EEK beacon can’t be modified by Physical Web app. Can you do it with our app AprilBeacon?

Okay, I can change URL with AprilBeacon app.

but it can be detected by the Physical Web app?

How can I make it trigger the Physical Web page in Chrome? Or wake up phone?

Thanks pea

Please change the URL to secure URL “https://”, otherwise it can’t trigger chrome.

Thank you Pea. Used HTTPS, switched on Physical Web in Chrome, but still not triggering. Am I missing something? :slight_smile:

Please check “Explore the Physical Web with Chrome”. I just tested again and it worked.


Thanks for the reply. Yes it works if I look for it, but it doesn’t trigger/wake up the phone.
Any idea why?

Thank you very much for your sharing.

The app doesn’t allow me to modify, keeps putting up an error.


Please check the eddystone-url page here. The length of URL is limited to 17 bytes. For long url, you can convert it to short url such as goo.gl. The url also support https.
