Many manufacturers of Bluetooth LE components find it challenging to test modules and sensors in compliance with the standard.
Connecting via Bluetooth LE is easy, takes less power, doesn't require switching away from your normal WiFi network, and allows for convenient over-the-air updates to firmware using the mobile device itself, as it can remain connected to the internet and to the controller at the same time.
AmpliFi HD offers plug-and-play setup through an app that directly links AmpliFi devices to a smartphone via Bluetooth LE.
During the IoT conference experts shared cases to innovate with Geo IoT: from IoT networks such as LPWA, Bluetooth LE or UWB to high precision GNSS and from Beacons and new sensors to 'Big GeoData'.
Currently, Bluetooth LE is available to use on all Apple products, has built-in support in many iOS apps, and is gaining support among Android and PC developers, too.
The pad is also used for turning on the Bluetooth LE transmitter for pairing to a smart device running the Masimo Personal Health application (compatible with iOS and Android), for changing the display brightness and for turning the plethysmographic (pleth) waveform function on or off.
