I am new to this and am coming over to bluz from a successful attempt at playing with a particle. I have my program working how I want on a particle and wanted to use a bluz for it's low power properties.
I got my bluz tonight and had to go through 2 different android phones to claim it.
What did not work:
Nexus 5x running Oreo 8 (just updated to oreo a couple days ago). I can see my bluz in the bluz app but kept getting an error claiming it.
What did work:
Moto play (original circa 2014) running 5.xx. I was successful getting and claiming my bluz on this set up. I was able to see it in my particle account so I know i got it claimed.
So, how can I use my bluz without a gateway/gateway shield. Can i use my phone and the bluz app as the gateway/bridge? I tried flashing when I knew it was connect to my phone and it failed.
When I try and compile a program on particle IDE it gives me an error about using BLE.setTxPower() and System_sleep(SLEEP_MODE_CPU) . Do I need to use import to get a "bluz" library?
thanks for you help.
