Bluetooth 4.0 is a low energy solution for short range data transfer. The low power consumption of these modules make them ideal for portable, battery powered devices. The new protocol also includes Mesh networking ability, allowing devices to connect to eachother, passing commands from a controller to all connected nodes, opening the door for home automation implementations such as mobile phone controlled lighting.
Bluetooth Low Energy modules support Apple iBeacon, most Bluetooth standard GATT profiles, and CSRmesh Networking. Additionally, we are creating an easy to use AT Command set for configuration and operational control of the low energy modules.
The HF-BL100-C is a Bluetooth Low Energy module offering high performance for IoT applications.
