1. A method of registering at least one Bluetooth low energy (BLE) device by a mobile terminal, the method comprising:

  • searching for at least one BLE device;

    receiving, directly from at least one BLE device, identification information of the at least one BLE device;

    displaying a BLE device list including the at least one BLE device by using the identification information corresponding to the at least one BLE device, on a display of the mobile terminal;

    receiving an input of selection of a first BLE device from the BLE device list;

    receiving, from a user via an input window of the mobile terminal, an input of first user added information regarding the first BLE device in response to receiving the input of selection, wherein the first user added information comprises at least one of an identifier (ID), a nickname, a category, a memo, or notification information which are input by the user to create a profile with regard to the first BLE device; and

    registering the first BLE device by mapping and storing first identification information of the first BLE device, which includes first property information of the first BLE device, and the first user added information regarding the first BLE device on a memory of the mobile terminal,further comprising;

    receiving sensing information and identification information from the registered first BLE device,determining whether there is a control command which is mapped with the sensing information and the identification information received from the registered BLE device,executing the control command, based on the determination that there is a control command mapped with the registered BLE device and based on the sensing information received from the registered BLE device, andupdating the first user added information based on the received sensing information,wherein the sensing information received from the registered BLE device comprises data sensed at the registered BLE device or information which is obtained by post-processing data sensed at the registered BLE device, andwherein the control command comprises executing an application, outputting a notification, or changing a mode of the mobile terminal.
