AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:AAand my remote BD Address with
BB:BB:BB:BB:BB:BBin the following post.
We will start to detect the Bluetooth version of the local device, in my case a Thinkpad W520. Very helpful
for me was the command
hciconfig -a hci0: Type: BR/EDR Bus: USB BD Address: AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:AA ACL MTU: 1021:8 SCO MTU: 64:1 UP RUNNING PSCAN ISCAN INQUIRY RX bytes:1303 acl:0 sco:0 events:139 errors:0 TX bytes:1290 acl:0 sco:0 commands:86 errors:0 Features: 0xff 0xff 0x8f 0xfe 0x9b 0xff 0x79 0x87 Packet type: DM1 DM3 DM5 DH1 DH3 DH5 HV1 HV2 HV3 Link policy: RSWITCH HOLD SNIFF PARK Link mode: SLAVE ACCEPT Name: 'user-THINK' Class: 0x00010c Service Classes: Unspecified Device Class: Computer, Laptop HCI Version: 3.0 (0x5) Revision: 0x2ec LMP Version: 3.0 (0x5) Subversion: 0x4203 Manufacturer: Broadcom Corporation (15)
The LMP Version is already saying that my notebook computer has only Bluetooth 3.0.
Very helpful for detecting remote devices was the command
hcitool. The following command shows all
hcitool con Connections: < ACL BB:BB:BB:BB:BB:BB handle 12 state 1 lm MASTER
The BD Address of the remote device is needed to find the Bluetooth version with the following command.

It seems to be impossible to connect a Wii Remote controller via Web Bluetooth to a web browser. A Wii Remote Plus controller is using Bluetooth 2.0 as you can see above.
