Bluetooth MESH: what are the main differences with classic Bluetooth? 

Traditional Bluetooth enables exchanging information from one device to another (one-to-one) over a very close range. It is especially used for file transfers or in new trendy devices such as speakers and Bluetooth headsets. Its operation is straightforward. A signal is emitted from the smartphone or tablet in order to control a single device.

For its part, Bluetooth MESH provides the possibility of controlling an almost infinite number of devices. Thus, it is possible to send a signal from one device to another, as well as to operate them as a group. In this way, each controllable device will interact with its entire environment.

  • GROUPS: create groups of your devices to control all of them with your smartphone or tablet.

  • BLUETOOTH LOW-ENERGY: it reduces your devices' energy consumption, thus increasing their life span.

Thanks to its intelligent network enabling all objects to communicate with each other, the signal range is multiplied creating infinite possibilities.
