How to connect correctly

To organize a connection via Bluetooth, first of all, you need to activate this wireless function on all devices that will participate in the process. It is possible to connect both two devices according to the "point-to-point" scheme, and up to eight devices according to the "point-to-multipoint" scheme. One device will become the master, and the remaining seven or less will become slaves.

How to connect via Bluetooth in practice (in simple words)

The connection always starts by activating this wireless feature. It is better to activate the Bluetooth in the main device first, which everyone else will look for. After that, you can start activating and connecting slave gadgets. If everything is done in a standard and understandable way in the settings of a computer or smartphone, then there may be difficulties with some peripheral devices, since each activates wireless functions in its own way. Sometimes you need to press a button or a sensor, some require permission to be discovered, some require a PIN, and so on. As a rule, everything is done intuitively, but there are cases when only an instruction can help, which describes in detail how to turn on Bluetooth on this gadget in Russian, and sometimes only in Chinese. In addition, in some devices, the wireless interface does not wake up immediately, and it seems that Bluetooth does not work. It turns out that it is enough to wait a few seconds or a minute - and the function is activated.

After activating the wireless peripherals on the main device, you should search for nearby devices. If you select the desired device from the list of all active active devices, pairing and connection will occur. Sometimes, when pairing, a four-digit password, or PIN, is requested. As a rule, this is: 0000, 1111, 1234, or indicated on the case, label or in the instructions for the gadget. Now the peripheral equipment is ready to interact with the main one and put all its capabilities at its disposal.
