Re: Reading GATT Data from Xiaomi Flower Care

Hi, just a quick note to let you know we're watching this thread with great interest. The Xiaomi Flower Care unit is a really good example of a BLE sensor, so if you can make this work, it will likely set a really good example for making BLE work with any sensor. I have some Wemos ESP32 OLED boards ...

Re: Enabling Ethernet and BLE both on micropython version 1.12 for ESP32

Hi Jimmo, great news, please keep it coming. I thought the discussion elsewhere in this forum about the Xiaomi MiFlora BLE soil moisture sensor was particularly interesting because we are planning to send the data from sensors like that to Node-RED running on a Pi via MQTT (and cloud platforms like ...

Re: Enabling Ethernet and BLE both on micropython version 1.12 for ESP32

Hi Jimmo, I just wanted to mention that I followed the simple demo in this forum post to start my BLE adventures: https://forum.micropython.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5090&p=43164&hilit=ble+state#p43164 I can confirm that it also worked perfectly on my ESP32 OLED boards, so it was a great place for a ...

Re: Enabling Ethernet and BLE both on micropython version 1.12 for ESP32

Hi Jimmo, I'm about to start working with BLE after a couple of months distracted by migrating servers. We had discussed this previously, and it seems like the BLE has now been implemented in the code that I can flash an ESP32 with. So I'm just wondering if I can write code in micropython, just the ...

Realtek RTL8720DN boards

Hi, just wondering if this unit might be an alternative to the ESP32? Could it possibly be flashed with micropython? I noticed it on a bulletin from seeedstudio.com, and it triggered my interest because I had yet to see anything with similar capabilities to the ESP32. More info here: https://www.cnx...

Re: About BLE.gap_connect(esp32-based ubluetooth)

Hi, just wanted to quickly ask what this means on the download page: Firmware built with ESP-IDF v4.x, with support for bluetooth but no LAN or PPP: GENERIC : esp32-idf4-20191122-v1.11-586-g1530fda9c.bin Does this mean BLE will be functional, or at least partially functional for testing? What does t...

Re: ESP32 Long Range Mode 1 km

Hi @jimmo, thanks for the update on BLE; I was wondering about that. I think we'll wait for v1.12 and see how well that works, so is there a specific forum I can monitor to find out when it is released?

Cheers, AB

Re: ESP32 Long Range Mode 1 km

Hi, we are still waiting for the bluetooth BLE capability (Micropython version) to be available for the ESP32, so we really haven't started this project yet. Someone has already done the Arduino version of it quite a while ago; here is a link, if you're interested: https://www.instructables.com/id/E...
