As promised I will write some further lines about BLE applications today. The examples shall give you some ideas what to do with Bluetooth Low energy.
Bluetooth Low Energy can be used to detect the presence at your laptop on Windows 8. As soon as your BLE key-fob is out of range the screen saver will start. For this application Bluetooth Low Energy offers a profile called Proximity. In theory you could use the iBeacon protocol as well. With Bluetooth Proximity Profile it will be more secure.
And those who want to listen to me about BLE and opportunities are welcome to stay on 5th February at the IoT Meetup in Munich. You will learn about BLE, you can touch and play with inexpensive BLE beacons, and on top you have a chance to win such BLE beacons during the event.
If you can’t make it and run an own IoT Meetup group or Google User group – then do not hesitate to email me at harald.naumann (at) gsm-modem.de
