Lot’s of talk about adding antennas to the Gotenna Mesh but has anyone thought about extending the Bluetooth LE?
It might make more sense then you think. A point to point Bluetooth connection might be the solutions to things like Firmware updates. I have been pondering this for a long while. I have been thinking about different solutions.
- Pringle can style
- Long wire
- Bluetooth over power line.
The pringle can style antenna might be the most compact that gives reasonable gain AND since WiFi and Bluetooth use the same frequency range there is no need to redesign the wheel. Currently we have no way to put the relay into discovery mode without physical access which is a hole in my idea unless we had an always paired device located nearby.
