[Bluetooth] How do I pair my Simblee BLE Board?

Post by GuiTeK » Thu Mar 09, 2017 8:16 am


I recently bought a Lilypad Simblee BLE Board and I'd like to pair it programatically to my computer (using the 32feet.NET library in C#).

The problem is, I have no idea what pairing method I should use to pair the board with my computer. Indeed, there are two pairing methods:
  • Legacy pairing
  • Secure Simple Pairing, or "SSP" (since Bluetooth v2.1)
I couldn't find which method the board uses. How can I know that?

I successfully paired the board to my computer with Windows 10:
  • Go to Settings
  • Devices
  • Bluetooth (on the left)
  • Click on the device and finally click on "Pair"
Windows didn't ask me anything (no PIN code), so I guess it's using SSP, but I'm not sure...

What do you think? Is there a manual I've missing or something?
