I want to use my Xenon as a normal BLE peripheral and connect it to a central or a phone. Can I do this?
Or should it be only on a mesh configuration?

I am able to compile my firmware and connect my Xenon to the VS Workbench and flash it.

@jmjobin, BLE capability is still under development but is considered a high priority for Particle:

Thanks for the rapid answer.
I was somewhat confused…
On the video to install the Xenon it is said:
“You will be asked if you want to join a mesh network, click yes”…
Well I wanted to say no…
But no click for yes or no and only ok to go for mesh…

Waiting for the BLE and hope it will be only a firmware update.
Regards.

As @peekay123 mentioned, BLE is currently under development and is a popular feature request for our Gen 3 hardware.

We’ll make sure to share that news wide and loud when it’s available! Thanks for the feedback.

@peekay123, thank you for the feedback, no problem I just ordered my Argon and will investigate on Thread mesh as well.
Waiting for your news.
