Detect a Bluetooth beacon

Go to solution

I have a compact computer with Bluetooth and trying to detect that a unit sends beacons. I don't need to connect, just read the UUID (in a quick way).. 

I am using Labview 2020.


Does anyone has a idea of how this can be done?

I've never used them but there are several Bluetooth functions in the Data Communications/Protocols/Bluetooth palette.

Yes. I have tested them all but no one seens to detect BLE beacons. I need the beacon and the UUID.

Thanx again.
