Bluetooth LE -> Arduino? IFTTT? #132
It would be wonderful if one or more Arduino Uno/Nano/DigiSparks could act as slaves for heimcontrol.js by means of Bluetooth 4.0 comms, using the HC-05/06 module or similar. Are there any plans to support such a scheme? Before discovering heimcontrol.js I was experimenting with my own RPi/Arduino home automation server concept and got BT LE working well between devices. It sure saves a lot of wiring...
I used Sandeep Mistry's noble on node.js, and also dabbled with using the TI CC2650 SensorTag as a package of sensors to feed information to the RPI using his sensortag node.js library too.
Finally heimcontrol.js needs an IFTTT interface which shouldn't be at all hard given that it could just trigger custom events using REST calls to the IFTTT Maker channel.
Just a few ideas to kick around... Sorry if they've been discussed before.
