    Standard Characteristic in Custom Profile

    stephen.mcguinness

      Hi,

         

      We are developing a new BLE product using a custom profile. The device will have a custom application so there is no need to use standard profiles and also it avoids the need for certification.

         

      The device is done and works perfectly using the custom profiles but we now want to add Battery monitoring and Firmware revision to the product. We can add a "Battery" service to the design or we can add a "Battery Level" characteristic to the custom profile...

         

      What is the benefit of one of these methods over the other? If we add the "Battery" service does that then mean we need to have the product certified by the SIG?

         

      Any thoughts would be great,

         

      Stephen
