    Anything like promiscuous or monitor mode for BLE?

      Hi,

       

      Is it possible to configure the BT or BLE stacks to act as a scanner for more than just ADVs?  For example, if I want to monitor the presence of any BLE radio activity in the area I would need to perform a scan across all 40 channels, not just the 3 channels that are reserved for ADVs, and look for ALL traffic, not just ADVs.  I wouldn't be interested in eavesdropping content (which would be encrypted anyway); the purpose would be be just to record BD_ADDRs and their RSSI. Does the stack provide any way of doing this?  This is easily accomplished for spotting peripherals that are advertising on the 3 ADV channels but I'd like to see everything across all 40.
