By default, the Mini will broadcast Bluetooth beacons roughly once every ten seconds. Any person within 20 meters with the Mini Configurator app installed on their phone or tablet will be able to view basic info about the recorder, including its name, serial number, and the state of its SD card and batteries. In order for changes to be made to the recorder's settings from a phone or tablet, a physical button on the Mini must be pressed to pair the recorder with the phone or tablet.
Optionally, the Mini Configurator app can be used to turn off the recorder's Bluetooth beacons. When beacons are turned off, no mobile device will be able to receive status information from the recorder unless a physical button is pressed to pair it with a phone or tablet.
