    Hi!

    How do you integrate BT near with BT info action?

    I mean... I want to get the signal strength of a BT beacon. BT info can only get the signal strength with two types: connected and scanned devices. The connected device type is a no go since a BT beacon cannot be connected to. For scanned devices I thought this would work like when BT near scanned the devices this will give me the info on those, but it seems no. The action itself must scan again, to get info on BT devices.

    Can somehow the BT near and/or BT info be modified to get info on the device BT near activated itself on?

    Hi. Just to clarify: the BT Info action works but you wanted to avoid the extra scan?

    Exactly. I want to avoid the extra scan. I tried the %evtprm() array, but it is empty with BT Near unfortunately.
