Testing it on iOS

To test that this actually works you'll need an iOS 7 based iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, and a Beacon application.

Start the app up, going into 'Listen' mode, and you should see a screen similar to the capture below, where the range will go in and out depending on your proximity to the node:

Beacon Toolkit only searches for specific Beacon UUIDs -- the same UUID used in this tutorial. If you use a different UUID, you will have to find a different tool to test on your iOS device.
