Can connect to a peripheral, requires authentication

Hi all! Im new to ble protocol, so far I read the reference given by particle in the tutorials and docs. I just started to try to connect to peripheral that is a smart lock( but for connecting I need to do some prior authentication and exchange data with the peripheral in order to be connected.

Thank you for the answer but I’m not really interested in this manner, at least at this time :slight_smile: In previous answer I just want to help you some how to “bite” this.
