Blecon Networks

Blecon Devices are connected to a Blecon Network. A Blecon Network defines a relationship between Devices and your web application.

A Blecon Network controls the behaviour of devices which are connected to that network, including:

  • Web service that device requests are routed to

  • Handlers for logging events and device spotted tracking events

  • Workflow when devices are connected to the network

  • Behaviour when a device is scanned after connection

You can create as many Blecon Networks as you require. Typically, you would configure a network for your production web service deployment and another for each of your test/staging deployments.

Blecon Devices will make requests that appear as HTTP POSTs at the request handler URIs you specify.

As you would expect, your application will need to return a 200 (OK) response to Blecon. Any other type of response will mean that the device will be notified of a failed request and will typically retry later.
