Estimote Plugin for NativeScript

Estimote Beacon is a super small device. It has a powerful 32-bit ARM® Cortex M0 CPU with 256kB flash memory, accelerometer, temperature sensor and most importantly – a 2.4 GHz Bluetooth 4.0 Smart (also known as BLE or Bluetooth low energy) bidirectional radio.

You can think of the beacon as a small lighthouse tower that's installed in a fixed location and broadcasts its presence to all the ships (smartphones) around. They could be as close as 2 inches and as far as 230 feet (approx. 70 metres) away.

The plugin is implemented on top of the Estimote native SDKs that lets you track beacon devices around you. It defines a global estimote object, which defines various operations that are used for tracking a beacon device.
