Indefinite advertisement period
For my application, there is no need for the beacon to ever send out advertisements until it detects motion - when any motion is detected, it starts logging accelerometer data until the device detects a period of no motion, at which point it reverts back to its original state.
The problem is that the IBeacon.ConfigEditor.setAdPeriod(short period) call requires a short, which has a maximum value of 32,767. I'd like to instead disable advertising altogether. Is that possible?
Also, regarding the design choice: after motion is detected, would it be wiser regarding power consumption on the Metawear to establish a connection between the Metawear and the wearable, or to send the accelerometer data via beacon advertisements, taking into consideration that we may want to sample around 50Hz?
