A Cloud Connected Bluetooth Low Eenergy Development Kit

Share
Posted April 17, 2015

Bluz is a brand new development kit that brings Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to the internet. BLE is designed from the ground up to be low powered. It can run for months or years on a simple coin cell battery. Most development solutions never let BLE escape from your smartphone or tethered device.

Bluz comes cloud connected to the Spark, meaning you can access to the Spark tools, control and program the device over the air from anywhere in the world, and not just when you’re smartphone is nearby. You can either write code to control your Bluz or use Tinker to control it from your smartphone or tablet. Bluz offers IFTTT integration and an API to let you control your hardware using any programming language.
