I have a nrf 52840 DK with me. I have downloaded the SDK for the mesh(v.3.2.0) and SDK (v 15.3). I am using segger embedded studio here. I have modified SDK_ROOT location as mentioned.
I am trying to flash C:\Nordic\nrf5_SDK_for_Mesh_v3.2.0_src\examples\beaconing into my Dev kit. I followed the steps in
https://infocenter.nordicsemi.com/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.nordic.infocenter.meshsdk.v3.1.0%2Fmd_doc_getting_started_how_to_run_examples.html . But once I flash my code, I am not able to see any beacon signal in my nrf mobile app or any beacon scanner application.
I am able to see the beacons (attached image of nordic mesh app) in the nRF connect app, however not in the nrf beacon or nrf mesh android app (attached image of provisioner), I am missing some steps I believe. It would be great if someone could point it out.
Thanks and Regards
By default, the beaconing example don't have PB-GATT or Proxy feature enabled so you won't be able to see it in the nRF Mesh app. As for the nRF Beacon app, are you using it on an Android phone or an iOS device?
According to the Beaconing example:
"Outgoing beacons can be observed with nRF Connect for Desktop or nRF Connect for Mobile."
Hi, Thank you for pointing it out. I was able to fix it. Now the beacon is getting detected in nrf connect and mesh network is also being created.
I have two more questions.
1. I wanted to create a network of mesh beacons and I wanted to see them under Groups in nrf mesh application. What would be an easy way to do it?
2. Can I create a mesh network using nrf 52840 dongle (it uses pca10059). I saw this thread
https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/37316/how-to-test-mesh-using-nrf52840-dongle and I was wondering where
mesh network is supported in dongle now?
