Hi, still very new so please go gentle on me.
My objective is to write a function that scans for a Bluetooth low energy device, extracts data from it, display it on my AutoPi dashboard and upload it to the cloud (from where I can extract it to my own db).
I tried to search documentation (and probably missed it) but not sure where this is documented
I just want to make sure
- it is doable
- I have the right overall component structure
So the steps
Install ble python modules for the PI (some like Adafruit BLE
Create a AutoPi custom code module that
Runs every x minutes while the dongle is operational
Scans fro BLE device and retrieves data
3). Create a trigger ?
- From here I know I could report to my own cloud however I would like to make it available on the daashboard and upload to autopi.io and then retrieve from atopi.io
Am I on the right path or totally misunderstood the architecture
