hey guys, a friend turned me onto Bluz. I’ve got a unique need for an art project and perhaps someone here can help develop it. Simple run down:
I have a triptych of wood panels on the wall. The left and right side panels fold over onto themselves. There is video projection onto each of the three panels of the triptych, but the video playback for the left and right panels only plays when those panels are unfolded. So I want to use a door contact to sense when the panels are open (simple closed contact) and then send that via BlueTooth to a Macbook that is running our video playback software (QLab). It would be amazing if that could work. I need the solution to be both wireless and battery powered because the wall the Triptych is mounted on has no power or ability to get wiring to it.
Can Bluz be set up this way for local Bluetooth transmission of the status of the sensors or does it have to hit the internet first?
Sorry for dumb questions - I know only enough to know this might be a cool solution.
