what i am i doing wrong?
We'd like to apologize in advance if you find this to be a rather basic suggestion, but given that our user base is quite heterogeneous we need to start from the basics upwards.
When you download and unzip the FlowerBIT example code, you'll see a file named "server.py"
. In principle, if you edit this file using a text editor (e.g. Notepad++) and change the MAC address on line 101
to that of your device it should work.
A good think to confirm as well is that you have a working Bluetooth adapter
connected to your computer either internal or external.
You may want to try manually pairing
your device with the computer as well. For that you need to open your Bluetooth device finder, search for devices in range until one named BITalino appears, and select the option to pair using a code provided by the manufacturer, which for BITalino is 1234.
I hope you find this information to be of use and we're looking forward to hear about your cool projects and applications with BITalino.
