Bluetooth LE Apps
« on: August 27, 2015, 10:54:50 PM »
Hi Guys,
I have used Tri-PLCs for years and love them.  Can't say enough about them.

For a while now I have been creating custom mobile apps that connect to PLCs (locally or remotely) over wifi/LAN (see mymobilehmi.com for more info). Recently I have been making custom apps for the "Arduino crowd" using Bluetooth Low Energy.

Just for fun I have also made a few apps that communicate with industrial PLCs (like Tri-PLCs).  For the most part, I don't see the real need for this type of application since BLE only works locally within 30ft, but I thought I would throw it out there just in case any body could have a use for such an application.

If you have a need for something like this, let me know.  If you have any suggestions on how this might be helpful in an industrial use application, or modified to meet a need, let me know.

 I am looking for ways to experiment and grow in the internet of things applications.
