  2. If it does not last for 1 day, see my article A Closer Look at How Ibeacons Consume Power. If you have followed the configuration in this article Configuring HM-10 to Support Over-the-Air(OTA) Update, then you should adjust the rated power transmission power to -23dB by invoking AT+POWE0
  3. If the problem still exists, try adjusting the advertising frequency to 1228mSeconds by invoking AT+ADVI9
  4. Make sure that it sleeps by invoking AT+SLEEP
  5. Enable the Ibeacon's security features AT+TYPE2 and AT+PASS000000("000000" is the default. You may change it to your preferred passkey
