Bluetooth smart connection with photon

Hi, i would like to start a project in which a bluetooth device (in my case, an emotiv neuroheadset could be connected to a photon device in order to transfer the sampled signals to it, and then process them. Does any of you experts know a bluetooth shield i could use with photon for this purpose? thanks

You could look into using Bluz or Redbear Duo, both working on the particle ecosystem and both offering Bluetooth capabilities.

Hi @Moors7, thanks for your answer … bluz was my first option, but it not suitable, since its is a BLE peripheral, and not a central … thanks

The gateway does act as a central, well… Gateway. Is has onboard wifi, allowing you to connect your Bluetooth devices to the Internet via it.
