Overview and application details

This is a sample application demonstrating how to define the device's scan time interval in case there is no connection. Default interval is 10 minutes. On setting scan interval, an immediate scan is activated. The next scan will be based on the set interval. This sample application shows how to set and define these Scan-Policies for CC3100.

The application:

  • disables the connection policy so that no scan is run in the background
  • enables scan, sets scan cycle to 10 seconds and sets scan policy. This starts the scanning process
  • retrieves the scan results - all 20 entries in one transaction
  • retrieves the scan results - one by one
  • disables the scan policy
