Key Use Cases
The smarter the buildings, the smarter the city. Bluetooth enables the automatic, centralized control of a building’s essential systems, including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, and security. Building automation harnesses energy savings, lowers operating costs, and improves the life cycle of a building’s core systems. Bluetooth technology also powers building-wide networks of sensors and beacons that enable indoor positioning and location services like way finding, asset management, and point-of-interest solutions.
These intelligent Bluetooth devices are driving advancements in smart tourism. They help venues like museums, stadiums, and airports guide visitors to where they need to be and provide them with a more personalized and fulfilling experience. Smart cities also leverage Bluetooth technology to boost local retail. Beacons power proximity marketing services and apps that help stores attract shoppers in the vicinity.
