The Agora comes pre-loaded and ready to run the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) demonstration application. The following describes how to monitor the Agora sensors through a smartphone BLE test app.
1. Power Kit
Power the Flidor carrier board with the wall adapter connected to the barrel jack and set the carrier board slide switch to ON.
The status LED on the Agora will blink slowly indicating that the sensors on the board have initialized and the Agora is now advertising over BLE.
2. Get Smartphone Application
Load the Nordic nRF Connect App on a smartphone.
3. View Agora sensor data
Open the nRF Connect application on the smartphone, find the "EP Agora" in the list of devices being scanned and press connect.
Once connected the status LED on the Agora will blink faster indicating that the Agora has connected to a peer over BLE.
The Agora sensors appear in the application as services; read data from the BME680 temperature sensor by selecting Unknown Service with UUID: 00000001-8dd4.....
Click on the down arrows to fetch data.
