Squid.link Gateway is now available with Bluetooth Low Energy
January 18, 2017
We are happy to announce that the popular gateway, the Squid.link Gateway, is now available for purchase with wireless communication through the protocol Bluetooth Low Energy.
At Develco Products, we are experiencing an increasing interest for the development of advanced Internet of Things devices. The wireless communication protocol, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), is well suited for a broad range of IoT devices.
Bluetooth Low Energy 4.2, which is now an option for our hub, is recognized by its very low energy usage. This allows devices to have an extended battery lifetime – a great advantage in order to avoid frequent charging of the batteries.
Optimal for close monitoring
BLE paves the ground for new innovative assisted living and healthcare solutions. Within these areas, close monitoring of people can be helpful, and Bluetooth LE is an excellent choice for this purpose. The protocol can be integrated into small devices such as wearables that can measure people’s wellbeing. The data is sent from the devices through the gateway to a software backend where it can be processed and transmitted to other platforms.
