SimbleeCOM
« on: April 20, 2016, 04:06:27 AM »
Hello Simbleers, first post here.

Looking at the getting started I see several parameters: mode, txPowerLevel and proximityMode.
Is there a rationale about all of these choices ? i.e.: it sounds counterintuitive to me using an high powerlevel when working in proximity mode, or setting longRange and txPower @ -20 dBM, and so on.

Thank you

Claudio

I don't know either without playing with them. They do seem redundant. I guess think of them as shortcuts. Maybe somebody from the RFdigital team can explain the differences in detail.

Hi Tolson,

thanks for your answer. I'll try to experiment, but I fear that I'll end up being more confused than now if some RFD rep will not chime in.

Ok, tried today and you are right. SimbleeCOM.proximityMode(true) is enough, without setting all others properties.
From what I seen, rssi values using com protocol are rock steady (less interferences) vs. BLE. Nice !
This way I can make an com <> ble gateway.
