Changing BLE device name / Filtering mac addresses

Hello!

I’ve made a web app for managing my boron via BLE. Two small issues:

  1. I can’t find documentation for changing the broadcasted device name, is this possible?

  2. I’d like to filter the device list from the dozen devices that show up to make it easier to connect to just the boron (instead of the random keyboards and phones that are EVERYWHERE). Is there a safe way to do this or should I not count on the BLE having the same manufacturer ID

Is this what you are looking for?

You’d typically filter for services/characteristics rather than manufacturer.
e.g. if you want to read your heart rate you’d look for devices that offer that sort of data irrespective of manufacturer.

Perfect answer all around, thanks for adjusting my thinking on how to find my device, that’s really smart :slight_smile:
