Didn’t think so. Just would be nice if GHI would specify. Info is often insanely anemic on the product pages.
The prob I have with Justin’s module is similar: Where are the drivers and code samples? (why can’t how-to links be front and center on the product page?)
But also, though I am a big fan of community built stuff, and I’m sure all my brit friends would be stoked in this case, I’m not excited about shipping cost and time to USA (where are the US distributors for this awesome community stuff?.. that would be cool)
@ Justin -
Hi, is your Bluetooth Smart module capable to communicate with Bluetooth 4.0 Sensors?
I read that a device must support a functionality that is called “Bluetooth Smart Ready” to communicate with Bluetooth Smart Sensors (“Bluetooth Smart Ready” means that it supports Bluetooth 2.x 3.0 and 4.0). As far as I know your module is “Bluetooth Smart” and not “Bluetooth Smart Ready”. If this is right, a device with your module could only be used to communicate with e.g. a PC or phone that supports “Bluetooth Smart Ready” and not with a Bluetooth Smart sensor.
I’m sorry that I didn’t yet get the time to try your Bluetooth Smart module. It’s still in the large box with all the other cool modules I want to try.
@ RoSchmi - At the moment the module can only act as a client so only BT4 host devices can connect to it, the module cant create a connection.
For the module to connect to another BT4 devices or sensors it needs to have a slightly different firmware so it acts as a host device. I am currently working on a firmware to support this. Only issue is to change firmware you need a TI CC debugger to upload the firmware to the module.
