Bluetooth Low Energy – AEP

This feature is only available on certain products and models (not available with all devices).

Bluetooth Low Energy allows you to search and/or scan for BLE devices.  You can connect with selected BLE device to obtain the list of UUIDs for services and characteristics that are supported on the device.

A python library called gattlib is integrated into the device and can be used for scans, reads, writes, and handling notifications.

You must develop a custom application to read and accept the data from a BLE device. Please refer to the example on the BLE for mLinux page as well as the  Creating a Custom Application page.

NOTE: If you already enabled both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), you cannot enable Wi-Fi as WAN.

  2. Under Power Mode, select from the drop-down including Custom, High, Medium or Low.
