Stand alone working BLE Sentry Working

I was able to get a standalong BLE Sentry working acting as an AP using hostapd and the USB0 interface.

The magic that made the networking work was having nohook wpa_supplicant in /etc/dhcpcd.conf

Another thing was switching from isc-dhcp to dnsmasq for dhcp. Seems to work better and is much easier to configure.

Also I had to figure out connecting to the network via CLI again

Here are the basic commands

ip link set wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid checkpoint
dhclient wlan0

I could use wpa but I opted not to, this will be an open access point.
