This is a simple Intel Curie BLE discovery example. We will scan for Tile device. Based on RSSI we will change the color on WS2811 LEDs.

About this project

My wife and I made a snowman out of plastic cups. It was a nice peace of Christmas and NY decoration. To built your own you can find full instructions online. I liked it a lot and wanted to prolong snowman's life for few more days (months :) ). We use it as night light for kids room.

But now I have a new idea. How about some colors? WS2811 LEDs strip comes to rescue.

Now to make it little bit more technical...

IMPORTANT: To be able to do this you need 2.0.0 CurieBLE Arduino library. Follow "Upgrading the firmware & library of Arduino 101" tutorial made by Gustavo Reynaga for complete instructions.

This is a simple BLE device discovery example based on Intel Curie processor - Arduino/Genuino 101.

We will will scan for Tile device. When device is discovered we will check it's RSSI and based on that change to color of a snowman.

When RSSI is low snowman will be blue (cold).

When RSSI improves snowman becomes red (hot) :)

Of course, we can have a lot of fun with WS2811:
