I have succeeded to work Blynk with BLE device(BLE nano) as following connection.
“SmartPhone(Blynk app)” --(BLE connection)-- “BLE device”
My next step is connect BLE device via internet like this.
“SmartPhone A(Blynk app)” --(3G/internet)–“SmartPhone B” --(BLE connecion)–“BLE device”
Can I do this ?
If so, how can I setup BLE connection on SmartPhone B ?
Bluetooth and BLE is currently only meant as you first described; App <—(BT/BLE)—> Device. I don’t know if the Developers have any future plans otherwise.
Combining BT with normal Blynk Server connections also seems iffy… I have briefly tried testing an app project running multiple devices, one being BT connected, but I did not get any satisfactory results on the BT side as of yet.
As for you 2nd idea, I don’t see the benefit of it, nor do I think it will work anyhow. You are basically trying to utilize Smartphone B as a form of a shield that it is not designed for, nor supported. Stick with a proper 3G shield, at least there is support for that
Thanks for information.
You are right that my 2nd idea has limited benefit. But my project wants to connect “low power device(e.g. BLE)” over internet.
Here is 3rd possibility, but I think this also imposible…
“SmartPhone (Blynk app)” --(internet)–“PC/Windows” --(BLE connecion)–“BLE device”
What do you think ?
