I have a Bluz Gateway (with Photon) and a couple of Bluz DK’s.
My scenario is I would like to read the RSSI of the DK’s from the Gateway whenever they come within range. I understand that the IOS/Android app is able to detect the RSSI but I can’t figure out how to do this in the Gateway. I’ve read the following related post although I’m not sure if the comments there mean that this feature is still WIP or if there is some other way to accomplish my goal:
At this point I don’t care about Particle cloud communication. I just want the Gateway to detect the Bluz DK RSSI and then (for now) I’ll stream the data over the Photon USB connector to a PC.
I’m not sure if the Bluz DK needs to be in a “connected” state to accomplish this or just an “advertising” state (I assume the latter).
On a related note, I tried the local communication tutorial to see if I could tweak that somehow to get the RSSI value, but I can’t seem to get the Gateway and the DK to see each other (the firmware doesn’t report any connected devices). The IOS app can see the DK with no problems though.
Hopefully my simple use case is clear but I can provide additional clarification if necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
