I suppose it is nice and nerdy to blink an LED over LTE, but I can’t seem to find any instructions on the particle website or anywhere else online that tell how you can set up the boron as a gateway for another device to the internet such as a Raspberry pi or even an Espressif embedded device.
I get that they opted for this proprietary ‘mesh’ stuff instead of using something more common - like, I dunno - ‘wifi’ which is everywhere. But it seems I should be able to use either the USB connection, the uart pins or even the bluetooth to grant internet access to other devices connected to the boron (either physically on USB/uart or wirelessly on bluetooth)
The site seems to be lack-luster for reference data outside of nice pretty schematics of the hardware and datasheets that only someone with a doctorate in electrical engineering would find useful or interesting. There doesn’t seem to be a whole hell of a lot outside of variations on the theme of blinking an LED or reading a pin directly on the Boron - at least that I can find and I’ve spent some considerable time scouring and searching the website.
If anyone can get me any useful information to let me know whether I wasted my money on a cellular led blinker or not, it would be appreciated.
