Configure a Cricket unit to be a beacon

When you first get a Cricket unit, it will be configured as a listener. To configure it as a beacon:

  1. Type P MD 1 $<$return$>$ in the terminal program.

  2. Type P SP test1 $<$return$>$ to set the beacon's space ID to ``test1'' (or to any other string that you want). The maximum length of the space ID is 8 bytes.

  3. Type G CF $<$return$>$ to check the current configuration; you should find the new space ID and the beacon setting.

  4. Save the new configuration to the flash by sending P SV $<$return$>$. If you don't save the configuration, the new settings will only remain until the Cricket unit is powered off.
