Bluetooth mesh library for iOS
The nRF Mesh library allows to provision Bluetooth mesh devices, configure and exchange messages.
It is written in Swift, and can be easily added to a 3rd part project using CocoaPods, SPM or Carthage.
See documentation for more information.
The library is compatible with
- Mesh Profile 1.0.1,
- Mesh Model 1.0.1,
- Mesh Device Properties 2.
The mesh network configuration (JSON schema) is compatible with
- Mesh Configuration Database Profile 1.0.
Bluetooth mesh specifications are available at Bluetooth.com.
- Provisioning with all features available in Mesh Profile 1.0.1, including OOB Public Key
and all types of OOB, using GATT bearer.
- Configuration, including managing keys, publications, subscription, and hearbeats (both as client and server).
- Support for client and server models.
- Groups, including those with virtual labels.
- Scenes (both as client and server).
- Managing proxy filter.
- IV Index update (handled by Secure Network beacons).
Key Refresh Procedure

- Exporting network state with format compatible to
Configuration Database Profile 1.0,
including partial export.
- Option to use own transport layer with default GATT Bearer implementation available.
