Unable to get data from RuuviCollector to InfluxDB on Ubuntu

So, if I haven’t totally misunderstood, that’s something I’m able to do myself (maybe). Well, gonna fiddle aroud with my ubuntu anyway so might as well fiddle with bluetooth.

I don’t know what kind format is correct format for tag’s information but noticed this one in sudo btmon

At least it looks like it’s reasonable

And after that I found that same plen number from hcidump -X

Just quick note before heading to bed after fiddling around with bluetooth long enough. Very first time I tried to do something with Ruuvi tags I tried Bluewalker, I had no knowledge what-so-ever.

Anyway, just started ruuvi-collector service and started bluewalker to run in terminal and… I get data out from Ruuvi tags.

My friend was certain that Ubuntu 20.04 and bluetooth 5.0 wasn’t good combination but apparently I managed to do something for once.

Ps. happy new year pals.
