Using BlueCats Reveal

Last Updated: May 16, 2016 01:55PM CDT

BlueCats (BC) Reveal is the BlueCats beacon management app. Reveal has been developed to assist in the deployment and management of BlueCats beacons. Reveal is much like a version of the web app on your phone, but unlike the web app Reveal has access to the BLE capabilities of your device. Role capabilities from the web app have been preserved to allow for ease of management and delegation. You can connect to beacons to update beacon advertising behavior or values or update beacons with changes saved from the web app that haven't been applied to the beacon.  BC Reveal can also upgrade the firmware on OTA compatible BlueCats beacons.

The login information used for BlueCats Reveal is the same as your web app login information.

Alterable beacon advertising behaviors and values include Target Speed, Loudness, and iBeacon, Eddystone-UID and Eddystone-URL identifiers.

The sniffer displays beacons your device is able to range and you are authorized to view.  This enables you to view which beacons you may alter directly.  The sniffer is also useful for displaying how your device is interpreting your current beacon deployment.  After starting the sniffer, you may observe blue dots appearing next to a beacon's serial number.  This dot indicates that your beacon has an available firmware or settings update.

Hierarchical management is configurable through the Teams section. Here you can see all of the teams of which you are a Teammate of and your respective role on the Team.  Use this section if you are not altering beacon advertising characteristics or you are interested in viewing insights for Sites, Apps, or Teams.


The profile page reveals your login information. From here you can view your user information and log off.
