This article explains how you can setup your Digital Matter devices to act as gateways and forward the data coming from nearby BLE tag devices.
In order to use your BLE Tags with your Digital Matter device on ALSO IoT Platform, you’ll first need to configure your Digital Matter device to scan for your type of BLE Tag. You’ll do this over OEMServer.
Your Digital Matter device will receive the new configuration the next time it reports its data, which shouldn’t be long.
Once your Digital Matter device is confgured to scan for BLE Tags, it’s time to add your tags to your ground on ALSO IoT Platform.
Next time your Digital Matter device scans for BLE Tags, your BLE Tag device on ALSO IoT Platform will be updated to show all of its sensor data.
When a payload containing bluetooth tag data arrives from a Digital Matter device, it contains a
tt (Tag Type) field, which tells us which tag it is.
You can find the list of all possible tag types, provided by Digital Matter in our Device types GitHub repo.
