In particular, it is never discovered if the bridge and device are very close together (< 1 metre). We recommend that you ensure that the two are at least 2 metres apart before pressing the Discover New Devices button.

These devices do not draw much current, so several can be connected to a bridge even just using a passive USB hub (no additional power supply).

Originally intended for connecting to phones to activate cameras, etc, the limit is your imagination.

This allows the distance between the beacon and the bridge to be determined. For an example see the ContinuumBridge Simple Beacon Handler app. The picture below is of a [Blukii key fob beacon](http://www.blukii.com/beacons_en.html), which can be used for tracking of people (or assets) using bridges.
