Here, we explain the workflow for controlling Bluetooth® Low Energy-compatible devices with LINE Things.
To construct a service compatible with LINE Things, link your bot app, your Messaging API channel, the LINE Platform, LINE, and your devices as shown in the figure.
# (1) Create a Messaging API channel
First, create a provider and a Messaging API channel on the LINE Developers Console. Learn how to create a provider and channel from Introduction in the Messaging API documentation.
After you create a Messaging API channel, you'll find the following information in the Channel basic settings page of the LINE Developers Console. Be sure to store it somewhere you can find it later.
|Channel secret||A secret key by which a bot app can verify that an incoming Webhook event was sent from the LINE Platform.|
|Access token (long-lived)||A token that identifies the channel for the Messaging API.|
# (2) Prepare your system
If you want to send a message to the user when a device is linked or unlinked, you'll need to build a bot app. Learn how from Building a bot in the Messaging API documentation.
If you don't want to send messages on link or unlink events, there is no need to build a bot app.
# (3) Configure devices
Configure your Bluetooth® Low Energy-compatible devices to make them compatible with LINE Things.
# Try LINE Things
After completing the above, start LINE, and try controlling your devices.
