Configure a Minew S1 Sensor

Our step-by-step guide to configure the temperature & humidity sensor with the BeaconSET+ app.

Configure a Minew B10 multi-use wristband

The TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read)

Learn how we at reelyActive configure the sensor to transmit data efficiently

What will this accomplish?
The S1 will transmit temperature and humidity data periodically to any Bluetooth Low Energy receivers in range.
How to capture the data?
The BeaconSET+ mobile app, which is used for configuration, can display the data. Our Pareto Anywhere open source middleware processes the data for any application.
How long does this take?
A S1 can be configured in a few minutes when all prerequisites are in place.

Purchase the temperature/humidity sensor beacon from the manufacturer:

  Minew Store

BeaconSET+ icon

Install on Android or iOS mobile devices:

  Play Store   App Store

Detect and connect   Step 1 of 3

Identify and connect to the S1 in the BeaconSET+ mobile app.

Why BeaconSET+?
BeaconSET+ is the vendor-maintained app that facilitates the configuration of all S1 features.
What's the range?
Configuration is most reliable when the S1 and mobile device are next to one another, but a range of 10m+ is possible.

Physically prepare and identify the S1 Part 1

The S1 must be powered on in order to be detected by the BeaconSET+ mobile app.

Check that the S1 is powered on by observing a periodic blue LED blink through the top of the enclosure. If no blink is observed, power on the S1 by holding down the power button until the blue LED is observed.

If the S1 cannot be powered on, first change the batteries.

Note the 48-bit (16 character) identifier on the enclosure (ex: AC233FA12345).

This uniquely identifies the S1 in the BeaconSET+ mobile app (and in Pareto Anywhere too).

S1 identifier

Identify and connect in BeaconSET+ Part 2

The BeaconSET+ mobile app requires Bluetooth and Location to be enabled on the mobile device.

S1 connection
  1. open the BeaconSET+ app on the mobile device
  2. identify the S1 in the app by its unique identifier
  3. select the identified device in the app to initiate a connection
  4. when prompted, enter the password (default: minew123)

Too many devices detected? Select Edit Filter in the app and reduce the RSSI threshold to display only devices in close proximity.

Configure the transmission SLOTs   Step 2 of 3

Configure the S1 to periodically transmit temperature and humidity readings.

What are SLOTs?
A SLOT is a transmission window. The beacon supports 6 SLOTs for different packet transmissions and triggers.
Why change the presets?
The factory preset SLOTs are mostly irrelevant and unnecessary for common applications.

Determine what to transmit Part 1

The Minew S1 can transmit any of the following packets periodically, or spontaneously given any of the following triggers:

  • Eddystone-UID
  • Eddystone-URL
  • Telemetry
  • iBeacon
  • Humidity & Temperature
  • Device Info
  • Temperature above
  • Temperature below
  • Humidity above
  • Humidity below
  • Button double tap
  • Button triple tap

Countless combinations are possible. In Part 2 next, we'll provide the configuration details for one specific combination with the following behaviour:

Trigger Packet Details
Temperature above Eddystone-UID 🥵 emoji using InteroperaBLE Identifier (Unicode Code Point)
Temperature below Eddystone-UID 🥶 emoji using InteroperaBLE Identifier (Unicode Code Point)
Humidity & Temperature Periodic temperature and humidity readings
Device Info Periodic identification, battery & reconfigurability

Configure each SLOT Part 2

From the BeaconSET+ app, individually configure each of the six SLOTs as follows:


Set the Frame Type to Empty and Save to maximise battery life.

SLOT2: "On temperature above threshold, transmit 🥵 emoji"
Frame Type UID
Adv Content  
Namespace ID 496f49445554462d3332
Instance ID 00000001f975   (🥵)
Base params Ignored (see Trigger)
Enable Yes
Type Temperature above
Temperature >= 23°C
Always advertise No
Adv interval 4000ms
Tx Power 0dBm
SLOT3: "On temperature below threshold, transmit 🥶 emoji"
Frame Type UID
Adv Content  
Namespace ID 496f49445554462d3332
Instance ID 00000001f976   (🥶)
Base params Ignored (see Trigger)
Enable Yes
Type Temperature below
Temperature <= 19°C
Always advertise No
Adv interval 4000ms
Tx Power 0dBm

Set the Frame Type to Empty and Save to maximise battery life.


Do not modify this SLOT: the BeaconSet+ app requires the INFO packet to connect!

SLOT6: "Periodically transmit temperature and data"
Frame Type HT
Base params  
Adv interval 4000ms
RSSI @ 0m -24dBm
Radio TxPower 0dBm
Trigger Disabled (Base params apply)
Enable No
Type None
Always advertise No
Adv interval 4000ms
Tx Power 0dBm

Observe data in Pareto Anywhere   Step 3 of 3

Optionally observe the transmitted data in your web browser.

What's Pareto Anywhere?
Pareto Anywhere is open source middleware that makes sense of who/what is where/how, in any physical space, in real time.
Can other software be used?
Yes. Any software that can receive and interpret Bluetooth Low Energy packets can be used.
Minew S1 Data in Pareto Anywhere

Install Pareto Anywhere (OPTIONAL) Part 1

Follow one of our tutorials to install Pareto Anywhere on your platform of choice:

Observe the /context API (OPTIONAL) Part 2

Browse to the /context API of the Pareto Anywhere instance, specifying the S1's identifier in the route as follows:


Change pareto.local to the IP address and port (ex: as required, and the identifier of the device (ex: ac233fa000000) to that of your S1.*   The /2 at the end specifies that the identifier is an EUI-48.

*alternatively, browse to …/context and select your S1 from the list of detected devices.

Enjoy the data (OPTIONAL) Part 3

Our cheatsheet details the raddec and dynamb JSON output from the Pareto Anywhere open source middleware.

Retrieve history in BeaconSet+ (OPTIONAL) Part 4

The previous 24 hours of temperature and humidity data can also be retrieved and displayed in the BeaconSet+ app, when connected. Connect to the S1 as in Step 1 Part 2, then select the Sensor field in the General tab, and finally select SYN DATA to retrieve and display the historical readings.
