1. A monitoring system that identifies an event candidate within a wireless node network, the system comprising:

  • a server disposed at a top level within the wireless node network;

    an ID node disposed at a low level within the wireless node network;

    a master node disposed at a middle level within the wireless node network, wherein the master node further comprisesa master node processor,a memory storage coupled to the master node processor, the memory storage maintaining event detection engine code for execution by the master node processing unit,a first communication interface coupled to the master node processor and operative to communicate with the ID node over a first communication path, anda second communication interface coupled to the master node processor and operative to communicate with the server over a second communication path, wherein the first communication path is different from the second communication path;

    wherein the master node, when executing the event detection engine code on the master node processor, is operative todetect, with the first communication interface, a first advertising signal broadcast by the ID node over the first communication path,detect, with the first communication interface, a second advertising signal broadcast by the ID node over the first communication path after the ID node broadcasts the first advertising signal,compare an observed parameter of the first advertising signal to an observed parameter of the second advertising signal,identify the event candidate based upon the comparison of the observed parameter of each of the first advertising signal and the second advertising signal, andcause the second communication interface to report the identified event candidate to the server over the second communication path;

    wherein the server is operative to receive the event candidate from the master node, adjust node management information resident on the server based upon the event candidate, generate an adjustment response consistent with the adjusted node management information, the adjustment response comprising an adjusted profile for the ID node, and transmit the adjustment response to the master node; and

    wherein the master node is further operative to receive the adjustment response from the server and cause the ID node to operate with the adjusted profile based upon the adjustment response.
