For the introduction of the Corona-App, a new protocol was created for the usage of Bluetooth in android smartphones. The protocol allows the Corona-App a continuous scanning and receiving of Bluetooth signals in the background.
To establish a connection between the I LOCK IT App and the lock, the app needs to be able to do a Bluetooth scan. This is very similar to the scan of the Corona-App.
The Corona-App is given a much higher priority by default, thus limiting the Bluetooth capacity which can be used by the I LOCK IT App. depending on the device, this could have various influences on how the app works. Expected effects include:
- A different Bluetooth range and a different behavior of the automatic mode.
- A slow connection to I LOCK IT.
In some cases, the range for automatically opening and closing I LOCK IT might be shortened.
