If you’ve ever gone to connect to Bluetooth devices on your phone or computer, you may have noticed a device called “ELK-BLEDOM” on the list. This mysterious device may have left you wondering what it is and why it’s showing up on your Bluetooth list. In this blog, we’ll explore what ELK-BLEDOM is and what it might be used for.
What is Elk-bledom on my Bluetooth?
The ELK-BLEDOM is a Bluetooth LED strip. There’s a good chance that someone nearby has a smart LED strip light plugged in if you see ELK-BLEDOM in the Bluetooth connection list on any device (like an iPhone, Android smartphone, PC, Mac, or otherwise).
It is common to find these strip lights on Amazon.com, and they use a generic Bluetooth chipset that appears as “ELK-BLEDOM” in Bluetooth device lists.

What if I don’t have an LED strip light?
Elk-Bledom is so mysterious because people scanning for Bluetooth devices are seeing nearby strip lights owned by others, most likely their neighbours. A LED strip light over 70 feet away was seen in another house.
“BLE” probably means Bluetooth Low Energy, a type of Bluetooth designed for low-power devices. But ironically, these LED strip lights seem to have a strong Bluetooth signal because they show up on lists from unusually far away. A typical Bluetooth device has a range of about 30 feet.

Elk Bledom Bluetooth In Apple Phone
Someone may have noticed another device they connected their phone to, “elk-bledom,” but what is it?
If you see ELK-BLEDOM in your Bluetooth settings, don’t worry. Recently purchased, unnamed devices may be recognised by your iPhone.
Elk-Bledom is an LED light bar available on Amazon. A Bluetooth-enabled remote camera device can also be used.
Is Elk Bledom a hidden camera?
No, it’s not a hidden camera. There are rumours online that ELK-BLEDOM is a hidden camera or a security camera with Bluetooth capabilities. The manuals or documentation we found to support this claim have not been found after an intensive search. Most likely, the camera rumour came from people who don’t have LED strip lights in their homes (or don’t know their LED strips have Bluetooth capabilities).

How to connect the lights?
An LED light controller app, such as DuoCo Strip(for Android or iphone), eliminates the possibility of a camera. The “Group Manage” tab will likely show “BLEDOM” or “ELK-BLEDOM” when you run it. You know it’s a strip light if that’s the case. Furthermore, if the signal is strong enough, you might even be able to connect to the strip light device. The LED strip lights do not use any form of wireless security, so you can control them from anywhere with the app if you own one.
Another option is to use an app like Wunderfind (for iPhone and Android) to find the physical location of the ELK-BLEDOM device. You can do this by running Wunderfind and walking around the area to see the distance to ELK-BLEDOM change.
