BT06 Bluetooth Serial Module Features

Bluetooth modules are a type of wireless communication modules that can be added to a project through serial or SPI communication protocols.

The advantage of using Bluetooth modules is that they are easy to set up and use.

The BT06 module uses serial protocol for communication.

Note

All Bluetooth modules that use serial communication protocols, support AT Commands, which are listed in the datasheet of each product.

Download the datasheet of BT06 module here.

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

SoftwareSerial mySerial(10, 11); // RX, TX

void setup() {
  // Open serial communications and wait for port to open:
  Serial.begin(9600);
  while (!Serial) {
    ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for native USB port only
  }

  // set the data rate for the SoftwareSerial port
  mySerial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() { // run over and over
  if (mySerial.available()) {
    Serial.write(mySerial.read());
  }
  if (Serial.available()) {
    mySerial.write(Serial.read());
  }

This code is to test the connection between the Arduino serial monitor and the device connected to the Bluetooth module.
