Imagine using your phone to control the light, temperature and music in your room conveniently. Or even better, if you forget to lock the door, you can do it through your smart phone, saving you a lot of trouble!
And you can get all the above with Bluetooth Low Energy Technology.
How to apply this cool technology into your projects? The answer is BLE Shield (aka Bluetooth Low Energy Shield).
And you get a BLE Shield here at Seeed Studio.
Seeed is working with RedBear Lab to distribute its BLE shield to maker community.
BLE shield is designed to work with Arduino boards, which enables you to connect your Arduino boards with other BLE devices. Besides, this Shield also supports connection between Arduino and iphone 4S/ipad 3rd generation.
With BLE Shield, you can
1) control your Arduino pins with an iphone;
2) pass all sensor data from your Arduino to an iOS App for processing;
3) use your iDevice as an internet gateway for your Arduino.
Of course, BLE has great potentialities, waiting for you to discover.
Are you eager to build smart home projects by yourselves? Stay tune! BLE shield will be available at our Bazaar soon. And more information about BLE Shield will be released too^^
