Bluetooth: Peripheral HIDs


Similar to the Peripheral sample, except that this application specifically exposes the HID GATT Service. The report map used is for a generic mouse.

In the default configuration the sample uses passkey authentication (displays a code on the peripheral and requires that to be entered on the host during pairing) and requires an authenticated link to access the GATT characteristics. To disable authentication and just use encrypted channels instead, build the sample with CONFIG_SAMPLE_BT_USE_AUTHENTICATION=n.


  • BlueZ running on the host, or

  • A board with BLE support
