I have a BLE sensor board (Thunderboard Sense : host of sensor data published frequently) which I would like to connect to the cloud (without the need for a mobile phone / computer).
Does anyone know how to use the Photon (with suitable BLE attachment / part) to receive the BLE packets (perhaps once per minute) and then to publish this data to the cloud (for later analysis and viewing). I see one could use a Bluz Gateway, or even a Redbear Duo. Has anyone done this before or have some sample code? I’m no expert in BLE work but can see my way through general coding.
Any advice here? Perhaps not even using BLE, and trying to tap directly into the I2C bus on the sensor board?
