    Thanks, does that mean that for all the other Beacon companies out there that for ANY Beacon it can take 30 seconds or so to register a broadcast URL and be seen on the phone? Is there anyway of making the phone pick up the Beacons URL its broadcasting quicker?

    Great thanks I am looking at the link you sent now, very interesting. I will have a go doing what you suggested, send me some links of projects you have done if you don't mind, I would love to see them to also get ideas etc - Cheers

    Thanks again great feedback, great drawing, what software do you use to make that?

    Yes the magneto sensor in the Puck maybe the best way to go for the sensor etc, I never thought of that, good idea.

    I have ordered my 8 Pucks to at least start my idea. Any idea how I start on the sketch/program now to start them at least talking to each other? And is there a ready made hub you would suggest I buy/use as the main controller? Thanks once again.

    Amazing how you work all this out, just amazing. The Google Spreadsheet is a great idea, never though of that.

    Yes I want the hub to be able to program/select profiles of activation patterns etc so are you saying its better not to use the Puck and use a different device for the hub?, what sort of Bridge/Hub do you suggest and can I buy one already made or do I need to have one designed?

    I agree a sensors better than a switch, I am just not sure which is the best one and if they will activate fast enough when the hand/foot triggers them, any suggestion which is the best sensor to use?

    Yes 100% correct what you have written below:

    The pucks all start out in advertising mode, in which they advertise their ID and that they are ready for connect. The hub then sends the light on command (delay to turn on the light, how long the light and how long to sense a hit). The puck executes the commands and reports back the hit time. The hub waits for that response, closes the connection, stores this information, and then moves on the the next randomly (or profile defined) puck's advertisement, and so on.

    I got the idea from the below link, but they want crazy money and no parent/child can afford the money they want, so I decided I would have a go and make a cheap version that anyone can buy or make and enjoy using to get fit. - Thanks again for feedback Jonathan

    You are the Man and have got it in one first time. That is what I am trying to do 100%.

    Its to help my kids and hopefully kids all over the world who are Football Players, or play any sport, to improve their reaction and speed etc. You can buy commercial ones but they want $8K!! for 8 lights! and I know I can make the same for max $500, maybe less.

    Its just the coding I get stuck with as I am hardware not software sorry to say. Below is a bit more information on my project which may explain it a bit better. This was my original question, but I think you have answered it all for me. How much will you charge to do the code for me? - Cheers Jonathan

    1) The Puck JS I understand has a switch built into its case that can switch LEDs on etc. Can I hard wire/replace the built in switch with a stronger switch, the switch I will use will be a High Grade Military switch as it needs to be very strong to withstand hard hits to it (Both by hand and foot). The switch I will use will be a momentary switch, i.e push to activate. Is it easier enough to wire the Military switch wires onto the Puck JS either to replace the built in switch or run in parallel etc?

    Answer Please:

    2) The Puck JS has built in LED's but they will not be big enough or bright enough for our product. I intend to make a round PCB board with either 8 or 12 large BRIGHT LED's on it and that the Military switch will sit in the middle of. I understand I will need an external power supply etc to control the other 8/12 LED's and this is OK, but can I take the data signal that the Puck JS uses for its own internal LED and use that to control my large external LED's when my switch has been pressed?

    Answer Please:

    3) I understand the Puck JS, and as per the video I saw, can be set up as a slave and master system, where by when one of the switches in the Puck JS is connected (touched) and thus turning off the LED in that Puck JS, that another Puck JS a few feet away will be activated and its LED comes on, and so on and so on.

    If so what is the maximum control range from Puck to Puck. 5 foot/20 foot?

    Answer Please:

    How many Puck JS can be talking to each other via the master Puck JS. Maximum I need is 12 but could work with 8. I am not very good with coding, so any advise help anyone could give on how to make the Puck JS talk to each other would be very much appreciated.

    Answer Please:

    How hard would it be to make an APP (Blue Tooth?) that can also be used to decide which of the 8 or 12 Puck JS LED's come on and when? So that people who use it can set their own training session, i.e if your left arm has been broken and you have to do exercise to make your left arm stronger you can make the LEFT sided Puck JS LED's come on more and not just random.

    Answer Please:

    Is there a way to give feedback and data to people as to how much they improve in terms of speed/reaction time etc and have this sent via BLE to a mobile via an App?

    Answer Please:

    Will something like this code work for what I am wishing to do does anyone know.? All I want is that when my 8 Pucks arrive that a light comes on in one puck, a person touches the Puck that the light came on, it goes out when touched, then a another Pucks light comes on and the person touches that Puck to switch the light off, etc etc, all Puck lights coming on at different times and all random. But not controlled via a web site. If anyone has any video of the Pucks doing this I would love to see it. Hope this makes sense.
