Hey, newbie here,
Would there be interest in other sensors than the current ones, like sound pressure level sensor or light intensity? Would imagine that they wouldn’t be too difficult to implement on the current beacon board.
An audio sensor could be used for applications like engine monitoring, burglar alarm, wildlife monitoring etc. A light sensor could be used in similar applications but also as a trigger for lights in places where you don’t want to put cables for a sensor.
Both sensors would potentially carry private information, so if there is not yet the option available, then we really should have the option for encc ftrypting the beacon message payload.
I have some expertise on the audio side and could chip in if someone picks up the project. Through my work I have some further resources available for both audio calibration and encryption, but for hardware design I have zero experience.
