In this demo, we will see how to load the SmartBridge web application and connect with the WICED Sense kit to display sensor data.


  1. Downloads and Installations
    • Download the es-WiFi demo software and drivers from:




                    Install it in the platforms folder:  ...\WICED\WICED-SDK-3.1.2\WICED-SDK\platforms

    • Upon installation, you should see the patches in the platforms folder:



     2. Running the ISM GUI

                    Note: If an error or problem occurs for any step throughout the connection process, it is important to unplug the ISM340USB stick, plug it back in and start from the beginning of this tutorial.

    • In order to run the ISM GUI go to the following folder: ..\Inventek Systems\eS-WiFi\demo and open the es-WiFI.application
    • plugin the ISM340 USB stick into the PC and identify which COMPORT it is
    • In the es-WiFi demo GUI, go to Menu > Install Drivers
    • Once installation is complete, you should see this screen:



    • Go to device manager, click on the correct COM port and change the following settings
      • Baud Rate/BPS: 115200
      • Parity: None
      • Data Width: 8
      • Stop Bits: 1
      • Flow Control: None


    • We shall now open the Com Ports: To do so go to Setup > Serial Port > Configure/Open
    • You should see the following screen:




    • Verify that the correct settings are in place as listed above and press OK to open the COM port.


     3. Setting up the SmartBridge Web Application

               Note***: Before we begin, it is important to note that every command has to be typed into the command line box. After you type in a command and press send, it will always take you to the main window. It is important to go navigate back to the command line to ensure a much smoother process.


    • Type in your SSID into the command line box and press send. Once you press send, the program will ask you if the SSID listed above is correct, type in and enter "y" or "n' accordingly.
    • Once past this step, type in the correct password. Once again it will ask you if the password that shows on the screen is correct. Give the appropriate response.
    • Once your password is entered, enter your security type and press "y". It will automatically generate an IPv4 address for the SmartBridge web application.


    • Copy and Paste the given IPv4 address into the internet browser of your choosing. You have now connected to the BT SmartBridge application


     4. Connecting to the WICED SENSE

    • We shall connect the ISM-43340 USB stick with the WICED Sense Kit
    • We have programmed wiced_sense.c onto the Kit to display all sensor information
    • Wake up the WICED Sense Kit and press Rescan on the web application
    • You should see the name: WICED Sense Kit along with an address. Connect with the Kit by pressing the "connect" button right next to the address of the Kit
    • Once connected, the WICED Sense Kit will show up on the Connection Pairings List. You have now connected the ISM340 with the WICED Sense Kit.




    • In order to view the GATT profile, we will press the "Details" button. Once pressed,  the screen should look like this:




We have now completed the Inventek ISM340 SmartBridge Application Demo. For further questions, please refer to the community forums.

This blog is designed to demonstrate how to add and remove peripheral devices from the White List using hello_sensor and hello_client.

We will use 2 TAG03 boards, but you can use 2 or more.


We will show you how to clear the white list and how to enable the white list and add a mac address to it as well as have advertisements sent only to the device which has been added to the white list.



1. Update hello_sensor

     Attached is the modified hello_sensor.c file that should be downloaded to replace the existing hello_sensor.c file.


2. Change the makefile name of hello_sensor and download it. The new makefile should be as follows:

  hello_sensor-BCM920736TAG_Q32 BT_DEVICE_ADDRESS=112233445567 UART=COMxx download


3. Change the makefile name of hello_client and download it. The new makefile should be as follows:

hello_client-BCM920736TAG_Q32 BT_DEVICE_ADDRESS=112233445566 UART=COMxx download


** Note: xx is the COM port number designated to your specific TAG03 board.


4. Open HCI traces for the board with hello_sensor programmed on it (board 'B') to observe the white list enable/disable and start/stop advertisement. (For more information on how to use traces, please check the Quick Start Guide)


5. Modify the client_addr array in the hello_sensor.c file to contain the mac address of hello_client as follows:


     ***NOTE: The client address (board B) should be the first address in the array.


6.  Hold SW1 on the hello_client board (board 'A') for 6 seconds. While holding SW1 on board 'A', press SW1 on board 'B'. The following trace should pop up on the console, with the mac address of the client listed:

We can see that board 'B' is added to the white list for board 'A' and can now send notifications,etc.


Here are the steps required to delete an address from the white list:


  1. change the address on hello_client to be random:

          hello_client-BCM920736TAG_Q32 BT_DEVICE_ADDRESS=random UART=COMxx download


    2. Open HCI traces, and hold SW1 on hello_client board (board 'A') for 6 seconds. While holding SW1 on board 'A', press SW1 on board 'B'. You will see that board 'B' does not connect to board 'A'. This is  because the white list of board 'A' does not include board 'B'. As a result, there will be no exchange of advertisements with board 'B'.
