    Discover bluetooth devices (beacons) on the Intel Edison module?

    zettez

      Greetings.

       

      I would like to know if there is anyway to discover bluetooth devices (beacons for instance, iBeacon/Eddystone) "programmatically", or automatically. So far I have used the bluetoothctl to scan and discover for instance my Android phone, which I successfully paired with. The idea is to let the Intel Edison module discover beacons and then propagate this trigger to for instance an Android app. The communication between the module and phone is already working, but the scanning for beacons is missing.

       

      I was thinking that maybe there is a way to do this with Python?

       

      All help is greatly appreciated!
