Bluetooth Scanning not working for BLE 4.0 iBeacons



  • This is ported from Github issue.

    Hi,

    I'm trying to get the Bluetooth scanning working, but not having much luck.
    I bought some of these
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019G0VVZC/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    But the obniz doesn't seem to find them when scanning.
    My Pixel XL2 and Samsung Tablets can find them, but not the Obniz.
    Any ideas?



  • Hi @9wick,

    I can get the scan.onfind to work and return responses, but any with the target uuid FFF0 don't find anything.

    My iBeacon returns
    localName:"Beacon_01823"
    iBeacon:Object
    uuid:"00004980-968d-11e4-b4a9-0800200c9a66"
    major:1
    minor:1823
    power:197
    rssi:-44

    So what would I have to set the target uuid to too find this target.
    OR, What do I update the UUID of the device to to get to to match the FFF0 uuid search.

    Sorry I'm not fully up to speed with bluetooth

    Steve



  • Hi, @kabongsteve

    Ok, obniz will find your iBeacon with this.

    var target = {
        uuids: ["00004980-968d-11e4-b4a9-0800200c9a66"],
    };
    var peripheral = await obniz.ble.scan.startOneWait(target);
    
    console.log(peripheral.iBeacon)
