Hi,

I want to broadcast device information like its capabilities (i.e. if its light, then off, on, dimmable etc...) ,device id and other cosmetic information. Does anyone know any existing method available in WICED? I know there are mdns based methods but I doubt if they do all these beside broadcasting service name. Also, can I control wiced device remotely without using web server?

Best Regards,

Dipen Patel

You can use BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) to advertise these data(cosmetic) that you are looking to broadcast. The BCM9WCDPLUS114 is a smart bridge that has both Wifi(ST+43362) and BT(20702).

Also having Bluetooth you can control with an Android/iOS phone the BT/Wifi as remote and don't have to use web server.

thnx
