When StickNFind burst onto the scene at the start of the year, the company promised that an SDK wouldn't be too far behind. True to the company's word, the toolbox has arrived, enabling developers to turn the Bluetooth location stickers into museum triggers, track conference attendees, or even turn the small discs into rudimentary pagers. The software's now available on the StickNFind website, while interested parties can dip their head below the break to learn a little more.
StickNFind Announces SDK Allowing Developers To Tap Into The Power of Bluetooth Smart

Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. – June 26, 2013 – Today, StickNFind, LLC (www.sticknfind.com) announces the availability of the StickNFind Software Development Kit (SDK) now allowing anyone to create robust applications for the popular Bluetooth location sticker.
With the SDK, developers can create applications that leverage the existing features of StickNFind including: connect/disconnect, battery reader, temperature reader, temperature calibration, tap counter, signal strength, set up broadcast packets with and without encryption, receive broadcast packets, set speeds (broadcast, connection), set minimum pairing RSSI, set authentication keys, update of firmware and control alert features.
"We have already had customers, engineers and developers start talking to us about numerous new and amazing applications for StickNFind," says Jimmy Buchheim, CEO of StickNFind.

The SDK will enable individuals and brands to leverage the power of Bluetooth Smart and create anything from location tracking games, RFID replacement apps, location task apps, to practical enterprise applications."
StickNFind Stickers are coin-sized, BLE (Bluetooth low-energy or Bluetooth Smart) stickers that can be easily attached to any object that you don't want to lose and tracked through the smartphone application. StickNFind can replace active RFID for commercial applications for example.
