This extension supports Bluetooth access via a BlueGiga (BLED112) USB dongle.
# Supported Things
It defines the following bridge type:
|Bridge Type ID||Description|
|bluegiga||A BlueGiga USB dongle using a BLED112 chip|
The adapter cannot be discovered; its serial port must be manually configured.
# Bridge Configuration
The bluegiga bridge requires the configuration parameter
port, which corresponds to the serial port the dongle is connected to.
Additionally, the parameter
backgroundDiscovery can be set to true/false. When set to true, any Bluetooth device of which broadcasts are received is added to the Inbox.
This is how an BlueGiga adapter can be configured textually in a *.things file:
Bridge bluetooth:bluegiga:1 [ port="/dev/ttyS0", backgroundDiscovery=false ]
