BLE Suite - Bluetooth Scanner

Embien – We build innovative applications

By considering the needs of developers working on Bluetooth Smart (or) BLE connectivity enabled devices like wearables, BLE beacons, custom BLE modules, etc., Embien has developed an android based Bluetooth scanner application named BLE Suite.

Embien’s BLE Suite aimed to be called the Swiss knife of BLE developments, is logically designed with visual elements that ease user interaction & management. It offers a rich functionality for debugging devices & enables features like BLE Scanner View, Service Browser, Widget Screen & Log Screen that aid users in viewing the list of available devices, pair with them to read & write data operations, based on the device characteristic.

BLE Scanner View & Service Browser

The BLE App has a primary scanner view option that detects all the available devices using Android OS. It displays device name, address and RSSI. Based on the connection state, the scanner view provides connect/ disconnect options. The devices can be scanned/ re-scanned automatically within configured time periods. Users can initiate a scan by just pressing the Scan button. The service browser will display all the services supported by the respective BLE Devices with their names for the user's view. Information like Characteristics/Descriptors can be viewed, managed and expanded. Additionally, the Service Browser supports the following options:

  • Displays corresponding name, if the device has a standard UUID as defined by the Bluetooth Low Energy Profile
  • Enables read/write options for information like Characteristics/ Descriptors etc
  • Provides options to change the format of the accessed characteristics data
  • Options to enable/disable notifications for various characteristics
