I am trying to connect an estimote beacon to a HC-05 bluetooth module connected to an Arduino. The module works perfectly, although I can’t find any of my estimotes because I don’t know which is their class type.
If anyone knows it or how to obtain I’d be very greatfull.
Thanks in advance,
I am facing a similar situation. Could you get your HC-05 to detect estimotes?
This would really help!
Unfortunately, the problem is that HC-05 is not BLE as the estimotes are, therefore they can’t be detected.
If you wanted to detect them using Arduino, first you need to find a BLE component for the Arduino, like this one:
At some point I will be getting one, so I will be able to confirm if it works.
Hope this helped,
Thanks Svarta…I realized the same after digging some more.
Also before considering redbearlab’s bleshield, should be noted that it can play only peripheral roles (can’t be a master).
Unless that is the requirement of your project.
Thanks a lot!
