This module provides higher-level BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) functionality, building on the native _bleio module.
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI
Warning: This will not work with BLE on Linux
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ble
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ble
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ble
from adafruit_ble import BLERadio radio = BLERadio() print("scanning") found = set() for entry in radio.start_scan(timeout=60, minimum_rssi=-80): addr = entry.address if addr not in found: print(entry) found.add(addr) print("scan done")
