Bluetooth BLE comms for IOT devices

Post by Wibbly » 29 Aug 2019 09:32

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... fromtasker does not work, apparently becuase BLE modules like the CC2541 do not have a pairing mode. They connect "directly through" the app. This is evidenced by a manuacturer's app for controlling a module like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07BSNZQ3H

The app here works https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... eb.dsd_ble but the module itself refuses to pair with the phone separately. The app doesn't offer plug-in support, sadly.

So the feature request is for AM to have an Action (like the app) to send Hex commands to a BLE-only device (that can't be pre-paired in the traditional way). :-)

This could open AM to a whole world of IOT device control over Bluetooth.

Asking the dev if he can make me an .APK to try, but this is exactly what my request is trying to solve

Anyone here got the skills and tools to create an APK from the code in the repository?
