Bluetooth detection



  • Hi All. Stumbled across Rexygen the other day whilst searching for a solution. Have installed it on my pc at home and have another RPI coming to have a play but really excited. I program PLC's at work and play around with home automation at home.

    How I stumbled across this was I was looking for a way of detecting 3 particular phones and feeding there presence to our PLC. I know I can detect the phones using Node red but does anyone have a concept or a suggestion on how to do this on Rexygen? Thats kind of the search I was doing. PLC, Bluetooth phone etc and then I added rpi.

    I am going to do a couple of projects using rexygen to test its stability as I can see a use for it at work.



  • Hi Peter,

    thanks for reaching out. I'm glad that you are excited about REXYGEN.

    Can you provide more details about your project? What is the goal? Which PLC do you use? How can you communicate with the PLC?

    There is no generic driver for Bluetooth in REXYGEN however you can integrate it using Python Function Block, which will be part of REXYGEN in upcoming release. If you are interested in testing pre-release version head to https://forum.rexygen.com/topic/120/installation-of-rexygen-2-50-10-r5 for mre details.

    If you have any questions in your mind, let me know and I will be happy to answer them.

    Regards,
    Tomas
