Use smartphone to directly configure WIFI settings on BCM board

pihlung's picture

1.Can I use the BLE on the BCM board to communicate directly with Android phone?

2.Is there a filesystem available that the application could read WIFI settings from during startup?

The goal is to be able to set ssid/password without recompile and download the BCM program.

Any advise as how to do that?

1. Yes, BLE communication with Android Smartphone is possible (our plan is to provide WiFi provisioning via the BT/BLE interface but our example of this has not yet been released) 


2. At present the network settings can be set at compile time (see the "how to bake-in the network settings" section in the Installation Tutorial material

What bluetooth demo program if any availiable right now would be closets to BLE communication with Android phone?

The bt_smartbridge is scanning for BT devices , but I need to put BCM4343W in bluetooth discoverable mode so smartphone can connect to it. Is that possible, and how can I do it. 

I use build-in wifi network settings but it is not reliable escpecially if  I change project. The sequence of putting the BCM4343W in AP mode and use the web interface is not reliable. Often the WICED_AWS connection is limited, and it just hang. Maybe there is a solid way to do it, but I just don't know it yet!

There are two new applications you can reference:


1) Sensor-to-Cloud example application just uploaded here:


2) Cypress WICED SDK 3.7.0 has a new "ble_wifi_introducer" app that accomplishes the same thing. Cypress even created an accomplanying iOS app:
