Cylon.js For Bluetooth LE
This repository contains the Cylon adaptor/drivers to connect to Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) peripherals. It uses the Noble node module (https://github.com/sandeepmistry/noble) created by @sandeepmistry thank you!
For more information about Cylon, check out the repo at https://github.com/hybridgroup/cylon
How to Install
Install the module with:
$ npm install cylon cylon-ble
For Ubuntu you must install the following dependency prior to
npm install cylon-ble:
$ sudo apt-get install libbluetooth-dev
How to Use
Here's a basic BLE example to get the battery level of a device:
"use strict";var Cylon = ;Cylonstart;
How to Connect
var Cylon = ;Cylonstart;
You will need a computer with a hardware adaptor that supports Bluetooth LE, also known as Bluetooth 4.0, or Bluetooth Smart. Also, this module currently only supports OSX and Linux operating systems.
You can use the
cylon-ble modules's included commands to scan for BLE devices, and then to list the various BLE characteristics for a specific device.
Note that you need to install cylon-ble using the
-g option, and then run each commands under
sudo like this:
$ sudo cylon-ble-scan Starting scan. Peripheral discovered! Name: 2B-785E UUID: cc360e85785e rssi: -80 $ sudo cylon-ble-info cc360e85785e peripheral with UUID cc360e85785e found Local Name = 2B-785E TX Power Level = -10 Service Data = Service UUIDs = 22bb746f2ba075542d6f726568705327 services and characteristics: 1800 (Generic Access) 2a00 (Device Name) properties read, write value 32422d37383545 | '2B-785E' ...
