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.
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 libcap2-bin
If the adapter starts but won't connect to your bluetooth hardware, please check the
info.driverState state in ioBroker. If it is
unauthorized, you need to give
node additional permissions. For Linux, this is as simple as
sudo setcap cap_net_raw+eip $(eval readlink -f `which node`)
libcap2-bin to be installed.
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).
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.
"xiaomi": All xiaomi bluetooth sensors, including
"mi-flora": Original plugin for the flower care plant sensor, now aliased to
"ruuvi-tag": Ruuvi Tag multisensor with firmware versions v1 and v2. Untested, please give feedback!
- Very experimental support for scanning on a remote host (#793)
- Another attempt at updating
noble. Hopefully this version works now...
nobleagain. This should fix the automatic rebuild after Node.js upgrades and the previous performance issues.
- Downgraded the
nobledependency again because of performance issues
- Updated the
nobledependency. This should fix the automatic rebuild after Node.js upgrades.
- The option to allow recording new devices is now available in the config dialog. When the adapter starts, it will be disabled, and when enabled, it will be automatically disabled after 5 minutes (#730, #729)
- Fix: RSSI will now be updated, even if it was unchanged (#493)
- Dependency updates, lots of dependency updates...
- Scanning is now done in a separate process, so uncatchable errors in
nobleno longer bring down the main process
- The pressure value reported by Ruuvi Tags is now parsed with two decimal places
- Added a more helpful error message if the adapter terminates with error
- Ignore unhandled out of range error somewhere in
- Utilize JS-Controller's auto module rebuild if possible
- Fixed a crash that happens when
noblecan not be loaded.
- Avoid setting
undefinedas a state value to be compatible with JS-Controller 3.0
- Fixed typo in Ruuvi Tag plugin:
- Removed compact support.
noblesometimes throws errors in callbacks that cannot be handled and would bring the whole compact group down.
- Added support for the Xiaomi Kettle
- Encrypted packets are no longer decoded (for now) to avoid creating thousands of
- Fixed crash in JS-Controller 2.0

historysettings by not overriding existing objects
- Bugfix: When plugins return
undefined, ignore the packet
