How to use Blukon with xdrip
- xDrip+ installed
- PIN code from Blucon
- Blucon placed on top of Libre Sensor
- Unpair Blucon (from any devices where you could have already paired your Blukon with) via Settings
-> Connected Devices -> Bluetooth -> BLU00XXX -> Forget
- Download and install latest version from https://github.com/NightscoutFoundation/xDrip/releases
- Install xDrip+ and Open App
- Accept all app prompts
- Make sure that Blucon is on top of sensor
- Press reset on blucon
- In the top left "burger" menu, open Bluetooth Scan and Scan for BLU00XXX device
- Once found select it and enter PIN (PIN can be found on the side of the Blucon device)
- xDrip+ should ask to start sensor, if not select Start Sensor from top left "burger" menu. Select the time/date you attached the sensor when asked.
- Your Blucon should now be linked with your phone, you will now need to wait between 10 and 15 minutes.
- After 2 BG readings from Blucon, xDrip+ will ask you to enter a calibrated value (blood prick).
- Enter this now.
xdrip Bluetooth optimisations (
Less Common Settings -> Bluetooth settings) select only:
- Turn Bluetooth ON
- Bluetooth watchdog
Less Common Settings:
- Make sure
Agressive servive restartsis enabled
Less Common Settings -> Advanced Calibration)
- Enable datricsae (under Calibration plugin)
- and if you want [EXPERIMETAL] Non-fixed Libre slopes
- Set a 6min "Missed reading Alarm"
- best is simply to exchange it together with the sensor
- Low battery will be detected and we suggest then changing it as soon as possible. Detection is still not perfect
- @keencave: I think the edge measured with a voltage meter is < 2.8x V. In my test setup I feeded the system with an adjustable power source down to 2,65 V before I see the battery low indication message. As any battery has an idle voltage and an internal resistance this will lead to a slightly higher voltage in real life. I guess that the peak current to drive the RF circuit is too low with voltages < ~2.8x Vs. My last 4 batteries all have had a voltage > 2.8x V after 14 days and I got no battery low indication at all. Seems that 2.8 V measured with a voltage meter is a good citeria to check wether an unknown battery can be used or not. Fresh ones should have >3.2x V.
