ioBroker.ble

Tests: Linux/Mac: Build Status Windows: AppVeyor

================

Monitor Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons and record their information. Currently, only recording advertised service data is supported. You can monitor which services are advertised by using the nRF Connect app (service data UUIDs). Connecting and reading/writing service chararcteristics will be supported in a future version.

Installation

This adapter needs additional libraries to compile. See https://github.com/sandeepmistry/noble#prerequisites for detailed instructions. On Raspberry Pi and similar, this should do it: sudo apt-get install bluetooth bluez libbluetooth-dev libudev-dev

Configuration

If you have multiple bluetooth devices on your system, select the one to use from the dropdown. In the textbox below, enter all UUIDs of the advertised services you want to record (as found in the nRF Connect app).

Plugin system

The adapter supports extension via plugins. Those define which advertised services should be listened to and how to translate the data. The plugin structure is defined in https://github.com/AlCalzone/ioBroker.ble/blob/master/src/plugins/plugin.ts and an example of a working plugin is defined here https://github.com/AlCalzone/ioBroker.ble/blob/master/src/plugins/_default.ts

If you have any device transmitting specially encoded information via advertisements, feel free to create a PR with a new plugin for that.
