Mesh SDK Beaconing Instructions

After some effort, I have managed to build the beaconing example that's missing from the examples.emProject of the ble_mesh_v0.9.1-Alpha SDK. I have this running on the PCA10028 and it's advertising. How do I now use the mesh part? How do I provision this in the mesh network?

I have also had the serial example working with the interactive_pyaci script. However, the documentation just talks for provisioning two serial connected devices. How can this be used to provision the meshed beacon?

HI Simon, I think that you're better off starting with the light_control examples as they already include the provisioning part.

Thanks, but I want to provision devices with the beacon example firmware, not light firmware.

Hi Simon,

I quickly tried to combine the light control server with the beaconing example, I can't really test it out right now, but it compiles fine and should give you the basic idea :)


Update for v0.10.x:

Is it possible to find a file showcasing this, but whit the new Mesh SDK v0.10, somewhere?

Hi Søren,

The changes are more or less identical as last time, I've provided the diff of the Light Switch server example and the updated examples/light_switch/server/src/main.c in the original answer for you.

Super, thank you Thomas. I have integrated your changes to my own project, but I get an NRF_ERROR_NO_MEM when nrf_mesh_node_config() is called, any idea why this happens?

Edit: I have posted this as a propper question.
