The Silicon Labs Blue Gecko App utilizes the Bluetooth adapter on your phone/tablet to scan for and connect to BLE devices.
The main components include: Health Thermometer, Retail Beacon, Key Fob, and BLE Stack & Profile Test.
The app can display temperature measurements from the Silicon Labs Bluetooth Smart Wireless Starter Kit (SLWSK).
The app can also indicate proximity to the SLWSTK using Find Me Profile (FMP) & Proximity Profiles (PXP) or a Beacon Profile.
The Retail Beacon component displays relevant information for AltBeacons, Eddystone Beacons, and iBeacons.
