In this way, you can remotely view the status from the mobile terminal and set up intelligent automatic linkage.

The principle of operation is similar to ZigBee gateways, the device with the Bluetooth module connects to one of the devices that has 2 wireless interfaces at a time, keeps in touch with the device by bluetooth, and communicates with the cloud by Wi-Fi. Schematically, it looks like this:

I didn't have an instant connection to the gateway, the device automatically connected 15 minutes after it was detected.

At this stage, there is no complete control of the devices, you cannot remove the gateway, or the device connected to it. Perhaps this functionality will be added later.

In general, a Bluetooth gateway is an optional device. All of the above gadgets can be controlled from a smartphone (but the functionality will be slightly cut off), but as soon as you move away from the apartment, the devices in the application will go offline.

P.S. ZigBee Gateway 2 does not have the Bluetooth protocol, and these devices are not connected to it.
