BLE Central Mode


#28

Also add me to the list of needing this feature.


#29

Any updates?


#30

Ditto…Redbear DUO is sun-setting and we need time to move over to Argon.


#31

Hello. Did they answer you, and if so, what did they say about this?


#32

The BLE API is actively being worked on but I haven’t heard of a targeted release date, probably because it hasn’t been nailed down yet. Mesh/connectivity stability is the Numbah One Thing, and I think that BLE is #2.


#33

The API seems to be mostly implemented in the feature/ble/hal branch. I am wanting to test. Unfortunately, while and I can build and deploy the os to an Argon, I can’t seem to reference the API or use the examples provided. No doubt it’s a reference issue, but I can’t seem to figure it out. I can reference the objects/types/structures in the BLE library, but none of the functions defined in ble_hal.h.


#34

As long the APIs are not exposed you need to build a monolithic firmware via Ctrl+Shift+B

Hi, Thanks,

Initially I was not sure what you were referencing here. I see that this is workbench now and I am giving it a try. I can compile and deploy locally with the released device OS’s, but how do I do it with development branches? I am new to VS Code.


#36

How’s this going? I see the BLE branch isn’t that far ahead anymore.


#37

We’are earnestly waiting for the BLE API too.


#38

Saw this missed the latest RC build? What is the latest status?


#39

BLE should be in 1.2.0-rc.1. That’s not as far out as it sounds, 1.2.0 contains stuff like BLE and NFC that weren’t quite ready and we didn’t want to hold up the release of 1.1.0.


#40

Good to hear. Then I will continue building on particle and hope for 1.2 to be released soon!


#41

1.2 is out but I do not see the BLE support. Is this coming soon?


#42

@doozMen, BLE is being tested right now. Not sure BLE Central will be supported in the first release.


#43

I cannot believe this is almost happening. Really can’t wait !


#44

Hi, I can see a Github tag named v1.2.0-test.2 and I can see BLE functions. I’m so interested on BLE advertising with Boron.

Can I test advertising with this tag?

And if the answer is yes,

How can I do it?

Thank you,

Manuel Montenegro


#45

Looking forward to BLE. This is the last part that I need for my project.


#46

This is really exciting. I’m assuming OTA updates using a BLE service advertised on a Particle mesh enabled device will not be possible, and rather the BLE central device (a smartphone in my case) will have to control the Particle device’s wifi connectivity/credentials/OTA update handlers?

Any updates?
