Door monitoring system

Hello Mbient Team,
I Want to develop door monitoring system, so i plan to use Mbient device.
I have two query
1. Can i use mbient product as beacon(if yes then which product should i use) which emit signal and my raspberry will scan the signal.
2. Will Mbient device provide RSSI and Tx Power value so i can calculate distance between device and raspberry?

Thank you

    1. Yes, all of them can be used
    2. Tx power is not provided in the ble ad packet. You can connect to the device to read/set it

    You'll want to do more in-depth researching for best known methods.
