Hi Guys , I’m DYING to use this on a commercial product but we have a-few limitations (easily addressed)
When changing the name using BLE_ADV_NAME it only updates the long name, not the short name ‘Local Name’ which is broadcast during advertisement to iOS, The long name is only available by iOS AFTER it has been connected.
It would be really beneficial for Bluz should have its own unique 16Bit Service UUID (available from bluetooth)
This would allow :
- If you use a 16bit UUID (available from bluetooth) you can allow for longer local advertised names - The big hint here is , its long enough to use the BLE mac address as the local name to 100% uniquely identify any device BEFORE its been connected to.
Secondly some ideas:
Why does the gateway connect to devices that have the name ‘BLUZ DK’ this seems really really odd, surely it should connect based on the advertised BLUZ Service UUID
