A new idea about Blackmagic Bluetooth Control

I read Blackmagic's official website and found that his Bluetooth protocol is open source, Then I have a new idea.
Since the BMPCC 4K does not have a remote control interface, it is often inconvenient to use the touch screen of the mobile phone for remote control, such as on a stabilizer.

Can anyone develop a tool that can display and control parameters on a small screen (like about RED REDMOTE Wireless Remote), and connect the LANC interface to this controller to control the start and stop of the handle control recording.
I think this can be done using ardunio or raspberry. I am just a beginner of ardunio, so it is difficult. If anyone can develop, I think that is great. I look forward to someone who can develop.

It is not impossible to build with an Arduino, a tft monitor and a bluetooth module, the BM protocol is very easy and intuitive. The point is that there are already smartphones apps to do the same things. In fact, RED itself ceased the REDMOTE because of foolcontrol app and the rec/stop trigger on the Apple watch.

I already contacted some Chinese manufacturers to see if they would be interested in making a Bluetooth controller for the BMPCC4K, one that is either just a start/stop record device or also focus/iris adjustment and that can be attached to a rig handle, gimbal etc. I have received responses that they will give it some thought.

Hi,
Where is the protocol located on BM homepage?
