node-red-contrib-bt-presence 1.1.4

A Node-RED node to detect the presence of bluetooth devices

npm install node-red-contrib-bt-presence

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

A Node-RED node which uses l2ping to determine the presence of one or more bluetooth devices. This node provides the collective bluetooth state. Means, only if no bluetooth device at all is reachable, 'false' will be signalized.

The node uses https://github.com/cmvee/bt-presence

Install

Run the following command in the root directory of your Node-RED install or use the "Manage palette"

npm install node-red-contrib-bt-presence

Usage

  • Add the bluetooth devices you want to scan. To enter more than one, use a comma to separate them.
  • Set the scan interval.
  • Deploy your flow
  • 'true' will be signalized in msg.payload in case of presence. Otherwise 'false'
  • A new msg will only be sent, in case of a change.
  • The interval is the time seconds between two checks.

Note for update to >=1.1.3

Previous version stored 'present' and 'not preaent' in msg.payload. Make sure to change your flow to use 'true' and 'false'.
