What kind of devices can the SPARROW detect?

The SPARROW can detect any nearby BLE peripheral device that is broadcasting in a standard BLE protocol. This includes BLE Beacons, smartphones, wireless headsets, wireless keyboards, etc.

What version of Bluetooth is supported?

The SPARROW supports BLE v5.0.

Can the SPARROW be discovered by other BLE devices?

Yes, the SPARROW can be switched into Beacon Mode with a simple configuration change. When operating in Beacon mode, the SPARROW broadcasts regular BLE advertisements so that it can be discovered by nearby scanning BLE devices.

What Beacon protocols are supported?

Any standard BLE advertisement protocol can be recognized by the SPARROW during its BLE scan. While operating in Beacon Mode, the BLE advertisement protocols supported are iBeacon (default), Eddystone UID, and Eddystone TLM.

Can the SPARROW be used to measure temperature?

The SPARROW can only measure its on-board MCU temperature. This can be used to roughly approximate the ambient temperature.
