Using WiPy 3.0 as Bluetooth Beacon? (Eddystone)
Hi all, I am very new to the Pycom WiPy 3.0, and I was interested in experimenting with using the WiPy as a bluetooth beacon that would trigger events in an android application once within range.
I am using Flutter with Dart for the app side, but I need some guidance in setting up the WiPy as a beacon. I have read some forum posts around about it but I have not seen a concrete way of setting up or any real documentation on it.
Thank you, and if this post is too vague I will update it.
@dispatj Try the examples given... If it doesn't work, come back with details of what exactly you did (the code you used, as well as what you use to receive those beacons), what you expected, and what you actually got (including errors, logs, screenshots...).
@jcaron Thanks for the pointers, I did come across these already however I am a complete noob at bluetooth! I will just tinker around until it works (never fails) :D
@dispatj Some pointers:
