Bluetooth Low Energy - Signal strength RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I implemented Beacon solutions in iOS and Android, planning to implement the same in Windows 8 Store Apps. In windows 8.x how can i retrieve Signal Strength of nearby Bluetooth Low Energy devices ? one more thing, i am able to find only paired devices using Bluetooth Rfcomm. How to detect nearby unpaired Bluetooth devices? please let me know. Thanks in advance.

  • AFAIK, you can only use a BT device once it's paired in the system settings.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
