This is my first time working with Bluetooth, so please bear with me if I ask any stupid questions here.
I have finished my lighting control device that controls light intensity by using Arduino Uno sending desired control signals (8-bit numbers) to program a PWM LED Driver (TL59731), which set the light intensity at wanted levels. Right now, in order to adjust the light level, I could either hard-code into my code or sending 0-10V control signal via an analogPin of the Arduino.
So now I want to advance my project by sending desired light levels (as 8-bit variables) into the Arduino Uno from my phone (Android) via Bluetooth protocol. Since there're so many Bluetooth Modules selling on the market, I really don't know which one I should buy and try. Some of my thoughts on the Bluetooth Module:
*Energy consumption is not my problem so I could use BLE or any *Distance is not my priority, but I hope to send data within 10 meters, so I should use class 2 Bluetooth? *I am a beginner in Android Developer so my ability to code in the platform is limited. If the module has an open source code/app that I can use for testing would be a plus. *Last but not least, budget is not my problem
I been reviewing the BlueFruit LE Shield Bluetooth Shield but unsure if it's a right fit.
Do you have any thought/ advice for me?
