2 Instances of the blessTags app. – a practical application


    Starting with the blessTags version 11.2.6.0 a new configuration option was introduced. This option (the first option from the figure presented below) allows executing one instance or many instances (the number of instances it is not limited) of the blessTags application. The blessTags Lite application allows only one instance of the application to run at one-time moment. 




    In this mode, an instance of the blessTags application can manage one type of SensorTag (e.g. CC2650STK) and another instance of the blessTags application can manage another SensorTags (e.g. ThunderBoard Sense).  Using this approach, you can supervise several parameters from a plant, simultaneously in two different places, and generate warnings or sends emails when a specific state is recognized.

Media Player Classic control


    Another practical application is presented in the following.  In the Gadgets tools set, using the Remote Control application several different Windows programs (3 different types of media players, PowerPoint or Adobe) can be controlled using the buttons from a SensorTag. Other specific remote control commands can be easily defined by a user.
    In the following movie, it is presented a practical application to control the Media Player Classic using two different SensorTags. The first SensorTag is used to play/pause a movie or to get to the next video. To do this a specific predefined list sets of commands is used. The second SensorTag is used to control the volume of the Media Player Classic – one button for volume up and the second button for volume down. The association between the buttons and the Media Player Classic’s volume commands is done using the user-defined list of remote commands.

    Please watch the movie, do it all the steps presented and enjoy a custom application of two instances of the blessTags app.
