I have recently started working on a project where I am suppose to use Boron and connect to a Blood Pressure Monitor + Heart Rate Monitor using BLE and read Blood Pressure and Heart Rate data.
I followed the tutorial example given here:
which BTW has excellent description on the BLE concepts.
So, in my case, it boils down to 2 services:
Blood Pressure UUID 0x1810
Heart Rate UUID 0x180D
And 2 characteristics:
Blood Pressure Measurement (0x2A35)
Hear Rate Measurement (0x2A37)
Following the example from here:
As far as I understand, these sensor devices transmit the data with SERVICE/CHARACTERISTIC info and the receiving device (in my case Boron) will read the data after a successful connection
Following the example, I have ordered iGPSPORT Heart Rate Monitor sensor (from Amazon) for my testing. In the product description, it says that this sensor can be connected to any receiving device. So, I am assuming that there is no security (password/pin) requirement and as far as I have the correct SERVICE/CHARACTERISTIC info in the Boron code, I should be able to read the data. Is my understanding correct?
Also, is there such a universal Blood pressure device as well. I was not able to locate one so far. I checked couple of vendors and the are advertising that their Blood Pressure devices can be used to connect to any 3rd party devices with their SDK/API. I am assuming that means these devices do not have open connection to other receiving devices and will only connect when proper password/pin (via API) is provided. Did I understand this right?
I will place an order for the Blood Pressure Monitor as soon as I have received some feedback on what to order.
Thanks for your help,
