Control, Monitor,
Automate, Innovate

Bluetooth mesh networking enables many-to-many (m:m) device communications and is ideally suited for creating control, monitoring, and automation systems where tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices need to reliably and securely communicate with one another.

Key Use Cases

Bluetooth mesh networking is optimized for creating large-scale device networks that make whole-building automation a reality.








CONTROL SYSTEMS

Bluetooth mesh networking is quickly being adopted as the wireless communications platform of choice in a number of control systems, including advanced lighting solutions for the smart building and smart industry markets.

MONITORING SYSTEMS

Bluetooth wireless sensor networks (WSN) monitor light, temperature, humidity, and occupancy to improve employee productivity, lower building operating costs, or better meet condition and maintenance requirements of production equipment to reduce unplanned downtime.

AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

Bluetooth enables the automation of a building’s essential systems, including HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), lighting, and security
to harness energy savings, lower operating costs, and improve the life span of a building’s core systems.
