The Smart Building of Tomorrow. Today.

The release of Bluetooth® mesh and recent advancements in Bluetooth broadcasting make intelligent building automation at scale a reality, even in commercial and industrial environments where reliability and security requirements are highest.

With whole-building coverage now a possibility, Bluetooth is expanding the definition of the smart building by enabling indoor positioning and location services that focus on enhancing the visitor experience, increasing occupant productivity, and optimizing space utilization.

Key Use Cases

BUILDING AUTOMATION

Building automation is the automatic, centralized control of a building’s essential systems, including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, and security. Bluetooth enables building automation solutions that harness energy savings, lower operating costs, and improve the life cycle of a building’s core systems.

INDOOR POSITIONING & LOCATION SERVICES

Bluetooth technology is powering building-wide networks of sensors and beacons that enable indoor positioning and location-based services like way finding, asset management, and point-of-interest solutions. These advanced services enhance the occupant and visitor experience and extend the long-term return of smart building investments.

Key Segments

SMART RETAIL

Retailers leverage Bluetooth to enable personalized promotions and way-finding services that connect to smart shelves, creating better shopper experiences, increasing sales, and reducing operating costs.

SMART OFFICES

Bluetooth helps businesses shape the office of the future through sophisticated sensor-based occupancy mapping and smart meeting spaces that improve workflow efficiencies, increase employee satisfaction, and generate results and profit.

SMART HOSPITALS

Healthcare facilities combat cost pressures, provide better patient care, and improve operational efficiencies by using Bluetooth technology to monitor patients, track assets, and advance emergency services.
