Testing activity sensing via BLE RSSI monitoring

A project log for OpenHAP

A bluetooth tag that supports Eddystone / Ibeacon BLE protocols is used. This would allow the ESP32 to monitor human behavior that may have influences on pollution.

With each Eddystone TLM(Telemetry) frame we would extract the beacon count and its associated RSSI.

Tp ensure that the beacons are not received outside of the kitchen, we reduce the output power of the radio using the manufacturer's android application till the beacons RSSI outside the area monitored are below the receiver threshold.
