My camper is parked in my driveway, about 100 feet from my house. I have a solar controller with Bluetooth capability and an app on my smartphone that gives me all sorts of information on battery charging. I'd like to be able to check that information from my easy-chair versus walking ALL the way out to the camper. [emoticon] I see things called Bluetooth extenders/repeaters, but it looks like mostly they are for audio, which would be one way. Has anybody used one of these extenders or something similar for what I want to do?

Thanks,
Ralph

Are you sure those BT extenders/repeaters are only for audio and 1-way? Most BT for audio includes some 2-way communications for track +/-, volume, play/pause. Check with the product tech details for the Bluetooth standards, such as from this list.

Doc stickdog: Thanks for the Rx. I agree. [emoticon]

APT: I'm not sure about one way. Just got that impression from product info. Will look into it further.
