April 19, 2018 ECD Staff

Bluetooth is revolutionizing how people experience the IoT. Bluetooth 5.0 continues to drive this revolution by delivering reliable IoT connections and mobilizing the adoption of beacons, which in turn will decrease connection barriers and enable a seamless IoT experience. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group is a global community of over 30,000 companies serving to unify, harmonize and drive innovation across a vast range of connected devices.

After the successful launch of HomeBridge with Zigbee support, it is now Bluetooth 5.0 ready. With eight times the broadcast messaging capacity and double the speed of low energy connections, Bluetooth 5.0 will further propel the adoption and deployment of home automation gateways and location-based services in the home automation market. It is nrf52832 based easy, smart home solution. This advancement will open up opportunities for OEMs and BLE based device manufacturers to integrate their home appliances with HomeBridge to bring to market complete smart home systems and home automation solutions.

“The adoption of Bluetooth 5.0 comes at a crucial industry growth period, with ABI Research expecting 48 billion internet-enabled devices to be installed by 2021, of which nearly one-third will include Bluetooth. A recent survey conducted by Lux Insights, Inc., puts 62% of respondents reporting a purchase preference for Bluetooth enabled products, noting Bluetooth is reliable, easy to use, and makes life easier. A large number of IoT device manufacturers across the globe will choose BLE 5.0 connectivity to enable their smart home solutions. In such a scenario, HomeBridge™ with BLE 5.0 support will act as a key enabler for OEMs and device manufacturers to enter this new market rapidly and at reduced costs,” said Dhruvesh Patel, CTO, VOLANSYS.
