IKEA Samtid mood-light BT firmware — simple_serial

This firmware for the ISML + HC-05 Bluetooth module currently implements the same simple interface as the current WiFi-code named ‘browser_control’.

Pairing the ‘HC-05’on linux using the command line (openSUSE 13.2):

When first powered on, the HC-05 module will blink its status LED rapidly, indicating that no link has been established.


Once the HC-05 has been paired, the status LED will blink about once every 2 seconds.

Now all that is left to do is to create a serial device in the /dev/ folder and we can talk to the ISML via Bluetooth serial. The user must be in the ‘dialout’ group.


Result: LED0..LED8 light up in a bluish colour.
