Early days for iBeacon compatibility. Anyone have any suggestions for iBeacon hardware? Ease of setup, build quality, etc.
I am interested as well in suggestions of others.

and look at Youtube Filemaker 15 Review:
FileMaker 15 Release - Developer Overview - YouTube
Very cool to see support for iBeacon in FM 15! We have been making iBeacon devices for the last couple of years and have a full line of battery and AC powered beacons. We are focused on larger deployments and provide the hardware and tools to manage small to large deployments.

We can help with custom solutions as well.
I bought these http://smile.amazon.com/i8-Water-Resistant-Silicone-Bluetooth-Programmable/dp/B019G0VU76?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref…
just for development and downloaded the demo file from dbservices.
They are easy to configure with BeaconSET and they respond very well to it. Seriously. Very cool technology since it can tell the difference between the three of them on a desktop.
However, I can't get FileMaker Go 15 to see them at all (after substituting their info in the iBeacon file) even with the broadcast interval on 200ms. Perhaps it's something odd in the script or something that I'm doing in my whopping 90 minutes of experience with them, but you might want to hold off on buying those particular ones.
Update: These work just fine once you see the UUID filter in the script and change that, too!
Just put up a sale on our beacons for Filemaker developers (10 beacons for $149 with USB power supply):

I am working on some projects with Filemaker 15 and beacons now and I'll share some details later.
We went with BlueCats (BlueCats | Spatial Intelligence Platform ) for our first play around with the new rangebeacons function and they are great. Easy to alter the settings on each one using the app and decent price too
