I’m using a BlueDuino as scanner and scanning for beacons. The problem is that under the exact same circumstances (distance, line of sight, obstacles, beacon settings), the HM-10 can receive the broadcast from the beacon, while the BlueDuino can not receive anything. If I move the beacon closer, of course both the HM-10 and the BlueDuino can receive the beacon’s broadcast.
Assumptions: I do not want to change the TX or interval settings on the beacon. Plus I don’t want to move the beacon any closer.
Is there some sort of setting on the BlueDuino that I could adjust? Perhaps some sort of power setting or sensitivity setting on the BlueDuino?
My guess is that there is some difference in the antennas which allows the HM-10 to receive a broadcast from farther away than the BlueDuino can receive the same broadcast. At least visually, the antenna on the HM-10 looks much bigger than the antenna on the BlueDuino.
