Bluetooth Low Energy
Bluetooth Low Energy is now available in our gateway. It is the perfect wireless protocol for IoT devices that run on battery and that need to last for long.
Low energy protocol
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a personal area network developed to meet the increasing demand in the market for Internet of Things products. BLE is a suitable protocol to use with devices that runs on batteries and that need to last for a long time.
The low power Bluetooth protocol is recognized for being interoperable across platforms, and it is easy to work with in the development of new devices. BLE is a low cost standard which allows you to focus on what is important for your business.
BLE 4.2, which can now be integrated in the Squid.link Gateway, is well suited for use in health care and assisted living solutions where close monitoring and surveillance of persons is needed. A Bluetooth Low Energy product could for example keep an eye on elderly people by measuring their physical wellbeing. The device sends the collected information to a central gateway that again communicates with a backend program where the data can be handled.
Bluetooth LE is excellent for sending small amounts of data with a high frequency. It uses very little energy in the process, which conveniently means less charging along the way.
With the increasing demand for IoT devices to carry on us and to install in homes, the question of security becomes extremely important. BLE is a secure protocol that can protect the users’ data and identity. Read more about the security in Bluetooth here.
