When you connect to an Bluetooth gadget and notice that ELK BLEDOM isn’t included in the list of devices You might be wondering what the heck it’s. The good news is that it’s not a mystery can be solved on.
ELK BLEDOM Is a Bluetooth LED Strip Light
If you can see the word ELK BLEDOM within the Bluetooth connection list on any device (such as an iPhone, Android smartphone, PC, Mac, or otherwise) it is very likely that someone else has an intelligent LED strip lighting that is connected.
The lights, which are operated by smartphone apps using Bluetooth they are typically available on Amazon.com and utilize a generic Bluetooth chipset, which is identified with the name “ELK BLEDOM” in Bluetooth device list.
For instance, here’s a manual for one of the LED strip lights. It tells users connecting to ELK BLEDOM in order and control their light using an application that runs on smartphones. It’s possible that many models of LED strips sold on Amazon make use of the similar chip that is likely to be available off the shelf in China which is where they’re made.
What If I Don’t Own an LED Strip Light?
The reason that ELK-BLEDOM is so mysterious is that users who search to find Bluetooth devices are looking at nearby strip lights belonging to others, which are likely neighbors. In one instance we saw (and was connected) the LED light that was located in a separate house 70ft away.
“BLE” in the name refers to Bluetooth Low Energy “BLE” in the name is likely to refer to Bluetooth Low Energy that is a form of Bluetooth specifically designed for devices with low power. However, the LED strip lights appear to be more powerful Bluetooth signal than other gadgets because they’re often displayed on Bluetooth lists at unusually long distances. The typical range of a Bluetooth device is usually approximately 30 feet.
It’s Not a Hidden Camera
We’ve read reports online that the ELK-BLEDOM name could be referring to the possibility of a hidden camera , or an alarm system that has Bluetooth capability. After a long research, we haven’t discovered any manuals or documents to verify this. It is likely that the camera rumor arose in the form of a concern by people who are aware of ELK-BLEDOM, but don’t have an lighting strip with LEDs in their home (or they aren’t aware that the LED strip light they have comes with Bluetooth capability.)
However it’s possible to exclude the possibility of having a camera by installing an app to control LED lights on your smartphone like the duoCo Strip for iPhone and Android. When you open it, you’ll probably find “BLEDOM” or “ELK-BLEDOM” in the “Group Manage” tab on the left. If this is the case, you’ll know it’s a light strip. You might also be able to connect the device that lights your strip when the signal strength is enough. It’s amazing that LED strip lights do not make use of any wireless security. So if you have one, anyone who is nearby can manage the light.
Additionally, if you wish to determine the exact location where the ELK-BLEDOM device physically, you can utilize an app like Wunderfind (on iPhone or Android). To accomplish this, open Wunderfind and then stroll through the area. you’ll notice the distance to ELK-BLEDOM increase when you move.
If you do this, you’ll be able to determine the direction of travel and how far it is away, and even find the device, when it’s not at the home of someone else or in an the apartment directly next to it. Be safe and keep in a safe place!
