A conceptual Bluetooth question



  • Hello all,

    A little bit off topic, but I hope some of you experts are willing to explain something to me.
    In the home automation business I see a lot of devices coming up equipped with a bluetooth radio.
    One example is this one:

    https://www.mysmartblinds.com/

    I always thought Bluetooth was a peer to peer networking "thing". Now I guess that's not how the smartblinds work.
    But how is a phone able to connect to multiple of these blinds ? Can it make multiple peer-to-peer connections creating some kind of start network with the phone as the "controller". Is this how bluetooth in combination with mysensors works too ?

    I guess it doesn't make sense. I just took the smartblinds as an example but I hope someone can exlain this Bluetooth workings to me a bit more in detail and make it "click"...

    Many thanks !

    Sander.

    @sander-teunissen I think the app just connects individually to each blind according to what you need to control
