Wemos D1 R32 Bluetooth issues

Postby kpatankar7 » Fri Nov 27, 2020 4:21 am


I am a newbie with ESP32, but have worked a long time in deeply embedded firmware industry. I am trying to get Bluetooth to work on this "Wemos D1 R32" board I am using for one of my projects. My host is an Ubuntu 20.04 PC with Arduino 1.8.13 IDE and ESP32 environment sourced from https://dl.espressif.com/dl/package_esp32_index.json

I am able to compile / upload basic examples like toggling LED via a GPIO. So my basic setup is OK.

I tried out a basic Bluetooth example named "Serial2SerialBT" that turns ESP32 on this board into a bridge between USB serial & Bluetooth serial. When I run this, I can see the Bluetooth device from multiple android phones, and can reliably pair but within 3-4 seconds of pairing the device disconnects. I have tried this multiple times, using USB power for the board and also 12v 1.5Amp supply.

#include "BluetoothSerial.h"

#error Bluetooth is not enabled! Please run `make menuconfig` to and enable it

Code: Select all

BluetoothSerial SerialBT;

void setup() {
  SerialBT.begin("ESP32test"); //Bluetooth device name
  Serial.println("The device started, now you can pair it with bluetooth!");

void loop() {
  if (Serial.available()) {
  if (SerialBT.available()) {
I have tried this with two different Wemos D1 R32 boards and both show similar behavior.

Any help would be highly appreciated!
