/*
 * Sketch: LedControl.ino
 *
 * Description:
 *   This is a Central sketch that looks for a particular Sevice with a
 *   certain Characteristic from a Peripheral.  Upon succesful discovery,
 *   it reads the state of a button and write that value to the
 *   Peripheral Characteristic.
 *
 * Notes:
 *
 *  - Expected Peripheral Service: 19b10000-e8f2-537e-4f6c-d104768a1214
 *  - Expected Peripheral Characteristic: 19b10001-e8f2-537e-4f6c-d104768a1214
 *  - Expected Peripheral sketch:
