    what the frick am I even looking at

      looks like an esp32 dev board, some other board with an antenna and an lcd screen. no clue what im looking at besides that.

      it is a homemade bluetooth detector for picking up BLE frequencies and such. Sorry for not explaining, should have thought of that. But would an esp32 dev board be used for that?

      You can literally see Bluetooth MAC addresses on the screen...

        do you know what the other kind of chip is? the esp32 dev that the other anon brought up sounds familiar.

    Maybe 3D print a case for that?

      much obliged!

      Looks like 2 ESPS connected together via UART and a LCD to display signal strength?
      Bottom one drives the display and the top one probably listens for bluetooth devices

      Thanks for the info. Both are the esp32? and any tips on the wiring/type of wires to use for connections? Can't tell what gauge those are but I only familiar with wiring residential light switches and the like.

        Both are esp32 and you can use standard jumper wires. Also there are more wires on the other side for the display

          thanks for letting me know I appreciate it!

          But why is there two of the esp32?
          Left one has the external antenna cable connected, but what is the role of the second one?

          Don't tell me that the first one does not support BT or BLE and the second one does not have USB and that is why there are two of them.

          >But why is there two of the esp32?
          I am curious about this as well

      one is dry and the other is "wet"
      its a security thing

    all i see is 2 esp32's with an lcd module ufl wifi connectors into what i assume is a directional hand held antenna testing signal strength of nearby bssid's

      yes that is the jist of it

      I don't have one

      ap wifi scanners are everywhere. make one of these.

      Oh so that is why those anons were talking about a clock earlier, that looks neat, but I am too ignorant to understand why it would be practical to have.

    Looks like a 480x320 TFT LCD touch screen Module for an arduino and 2 esp32 wifi modules. looks like one wifi module is dedicated to maintaining the screen over an spi interface and the other is running the main code and talking over usb. You'll need some wires, screws and wood to complete the setup. This looks neat.

      checked! so I need to program one of them via a usb? Would I have to code to do that? or what exactly would I put on the usb?

      • 1 month ago

        They both need to be programmed over usb I think. But they'll need to be programmed for different things. That is if they work like an arduino of course. I've never used these modules myself. I hear they have a lot of computing power, which makes sense as they are meant for running an embedded tcp/ip stack. That's is a fairly complex piece of code.

          I see. I think I know someone I could outsource for the coding. What kind of direction should I give him? I will show him the thread of course but I am not sure if that is enough to go on.

          Sure, but there's a wire hanging over the camera so is it being used for that? Maybe they're only using what they had to hand. What is this thing being used for anyway? I see mac addresses on the screen.

          it is supposed to pick up BLE signals, but I wouldn't be surprised if it could pick up other kinds of frequencies as well

            These kind of modules are well known to tinkerers everywhere, but they won't do much without the code to run on them. Did you find something off github you want to replicate?

          • 1 month ago

            no to be honest, I ran across the image on another board, deduced what it was, and decided it was something I wanted to replicate. I am not familiar with github in the least, would it be worth checking in this situation? It seems the fact I dont know anything about the code it runs is the biggest issue. Is that going to be a brick wall for this project? I have heard of people programming flipper zeros to detect BLE signals but I am not sure if that information would be helpful in this situation

            Without any code there is no project. It seems kinda sketchy as well.

    the top one with the antenna connector is a esp32 cam board.

          You like me are free to have your own beliefs. I am just interested in the device. I was asked for the source, I provided it. Regardless there is no information about the code or assembly in that thread. So what is your point?

          • 1 month ago

            no point. just thought it came from a micro diy thread (like this one https://boards.IQfy/diy/thread/2733332), not a vaxx thread.

            I see, apologies. Assume makes an ass of you and me; in this case myself heh. I have been looking for a diy guide to build a device like this for over eighteen months, all I could find in that time is some people alluding to having modified their flipper 0s, that is it. I know it is not much to go on but that is the only example of a DIY bluetooth detector I could find, so I figured I would find out as much about it as I could. Thanks for the link and your time.

    i see this but it sends the info the a server for display.
    https://github.com/gromeck/BLE-Scanner

    would be nice to see the wiring so was hoping ther was a page that showed the display/dev board wiring to show the info without sending the info the the mqtt server.

      thanks! I am guessing the wiring in this instance isn't something you can just do flying by the seat of your pants. I wonder if I made an account and requested a diagram from the OP if he would respond.... would the code also have to be modified so the data wouldn't get routed to the server?
