Hi @Bogdan_Manta,

Getting manufacturer data is implemented but not yet released. I’ll try to find some time to cut a new release for this feature, but I cannot promise anything now when as I’m too busy.

Hi Vlad

I successfully upgrade to 5.47 but it did not change anything.

I really appreciate your support and I like the approach of your bluetooth binding. I have however decided to go another path.
For all my current bluetooth devices (Mi Flower, Weber iGrill, Huawei scale and Anova sues vide) sombody have made a Python program that access the device and publish on MQTT. So I set up a couple of Pi Zeros and run these programs. I have it running for Mi Flower, and it was real easy to set up.
For presence detection I am going to use some iBeacons and OwnTracks on the phones.

I hope you find the time to do more work on your binding, as it seems to be just the right approach. I do however suggest you think about how to make it easier to add support for devices, as most devices seems to require some tweaking beside just parsing the GATT.

Again, thank you!

Hi @Gad_Ofir, yeah, this one is an experimental feature. Most likely it is your iphone or android phone. Change name in BT settings of your phone and then instead of /XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX/[name=3D:CF:C7:C2:A5:92] your should get /XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX/[name=“phone name”] and then it should work fine given you do the following:
