I want to use an old iphone to be able to run teamviewer so I can control my bluetti power units remotely. The plan is for the old iphone to connect with the bluetti’s via bluetooth and then I connect to the old iphone through the net.
The problem I have is that the old iphone doesn’t have a sim card so I can’t get past the set up stage. Does anyone happen to know if there’s a way I can connect the phone to bluetooth and net without a sim???
Now let me start by saying I’ve never had this requirement nor implemented it but my first thought was using a phone as a bluetooth to wifi bridge is over complicating the solution, Is there no simpler way?
I don’t understand what having a phone connected to a bluetooth device and the same phone also being connected to a wifi network buys you. Is there some passthrough benefit, or an app on the phone that takes data from the BT device that you can interrogate via wifi?
@John_Scully yes there is a bluetti app on my main phone that I use to connect to the bluetti power stations. The app allows me to control the power stations locally i.e. within about 10-15m from them.
My plan is to have the app running on the ‘old’ iphone that I leave in the house, then I connect remotely to that phone via the net, and therefore able to control the app on that phone with e.g. teamviewer or similar prog.
