IoT Networks Based On The Bluetooth Mesh: Benefits And Use Cases

Wireless IoT devices networks (industrial IoT devices, smart lighting networks, smart buildings) automate business operations, provide real time centralized information access, reduce manual labor, increase business productivity and efficiency. Industrial IoT devices networks eliminate manual data collection, provide timely alerts to help alleviate operations problems, reduce maintenance and operations costs. Connected wireless IoT devices in smart buildings (such as smart lighting, wireless security systems, wireless HVAC systems, etc.) increase energy efficiency, give facility managers and tenants more control, reduce facility operations and maintenance cost.

Bluetooth mesh is the popular technology for the IoT devices networks. Bluetooth mesh has several advantages as compared to other Internet of Things technologies:



  • Bluetooth mesh is an open standard. The open standard of bluetooth mesh allows for vendor interoperability. You can use bluetooth mesh hardware, firmware and software from different vendors. You can mix and match vendors, or use available open source SDKs to produce your own software to control bluetooth mesh IoT networks.
  • Bluetooth mesh IoT networks can be controlled by the regular smartphones. Bluetooth mesh is the only IoT technology that does not require special proprietary hardware for the network devices provisioning, configuration and control. You can control bluetooth mesh IoT devices with the regular smartphones or tablets.
  • A single bluetooth mesh network can be used for multiple applications. You do not need to create multiple IoT networks for the different applications - a single bluetooth mesh IoT network can be used for multiple purposes. For example, a smart lighting network can be used for the asset tracking and / or indoor navigation.
  • Long communication range. Bluetooth mesh technology allows for messages to travel across an entire IoT network for a long distance, eliminating the need for multiple gateways.


Wireless IoT devices networks are used in a variety of businesses for increasing productivity and business efficiency:



  • IoT networks for industrial machinery, to collect data on machinery operations and detect problems early.
  • IoT sensors networks in the warehouses, cold storage facilities, greenhouses, etc. to efficiently monitor temperature and humidity.
  • Smart lighting networks: wireless smart lighting automates lighting system operations and increases energy efficiency, gives companies more control on lighting system configuration and valuable data.
  • Smart buildings: use networked IoT devices for multiple functions, from lighting to HVAC to security.
  • Bluetooth beacons networks for asset tracking and indoor navigation.

IoT Software: Why Use BLE Mesh Commissioning Software For Managing IoT Networks

BLE Mesh Commissioning software gives you necessary tools for efficient management of the multiple wireless IoT bluetooth mesh networks. Administrators manage bluetooth mesh networks, create networks configuration and review on site data via an admin web dashboard. On site installers provision bluetooth mesh devices into the IoT network and apply preset configuration using regular smartphones or tablets and BLE Mesh Commissioning mobile application. BLE Mesh Commissioning software provides a secure centralized data system, where all authorized users always have an access to the real time IoT networks information.

Centralized IoT Software Platform For Managing Multiple Commercial BLE Mesh Networks

Manage multiple commercial IoT networks based on the bluetooth mesh. Configure networks via the web dashboard, apply preset configuration on site using BLE Mesh Commissioning mobile application.

Web Interface For Bluetooth Mesh Networks Configuration

Use a secure admin web dashboard to manage IoT applications and bluetooth mesh devices that you use, create and configure bluetooth mesh networks, and review status of the on site provisioned bluetooth mesh network devices. BLE Mesh Commissioning software is designed to minimize redundant work and data input, and provides intuitive drag and drop interface for managing IoT devices groups and groups interaction.

Easy On Site Commissioning Using Mobile Application

BLE Mesh Commissioning mobile application allows on site installers and customers to easily provision new IoT devices into the bluetooth mesh network and apply preset network configuration. Mobile application users can quickly and easily configure bluetooth mesh networks without knowing any details of the bluetooth mesh networks internal operations.

Secure, Centralized Data System

BLE Mesh Commissioning software has a secure, centralized data system in the backend. You do not need to rely on the specific mobile devices to hold IoT network data, or do manual import / exports. All authorized users, logged in via the web interface on any office computer, or via mobile application on any mobile device, have an access to the live IoT networks data.

BLE Mesh Commissioning software has a user privilege system to ensure that each user can only perform the functions he is allowed to perform, and can only work with the projects / bluetooth mesh networks to which he was granted an access by the administrator.

BLE Mesh Commissioning software has an internal locking mechanism to ensure data integrity of all IoT networks.

Use One IoT Software For Multiple Bluetooth Mesh Applications

BLE Mesh Commissioning software is not confined to a specific IoT / bluetooth mesh use case. You can use it for a variety of IoT applications - smart lighting, industrial IoT, IoT sensors networks, etc. In case of the smart buildings with multiple IoT applications (such as lighting, HVAC, security, etc.) you can use BLE Mesh Commissioning software to manage bluetooth mesh network (s) for the entire building.

BLE Mesh Commissioning software allows you to specify the IoT application(s) that you want to use, and device types that are going to be a part of each application. For example, you may have a Lighting application, that will include light fixtures, sensors and switches, and HVAC application, that will include A/C and heating units and thermostats.

You create applications and device types just once, then use this information to configure each bluetooth mesh network you create.

Flexible Communication Scenarios For IoT Devices

Bluetooth mesh specifications provide a lot of flexibility in how bluetooth mesh devices can communicate to each other. A bluetooth mesh device can send messages to a specific device, to a group of devices or all devices on the IoT network. A bluetooth mesh device can have multiple elements that can publish data to different subscriber groups. A bluetooth mesh device can listen to multiple devices, and play a role of both a publisher and a subscriber.

BLE Mesh Commissioning software uses these capabilities to allow for the customized, flexible grouping of the IoT network devices. Bluetooth mesh devices that communicate to each other do not need to be confined to a geographical "zone", and you can create intersecting groups of devices that listen to different controllers without a confusion or complexity. No matter how simple or complex your bluetooth mesh network design is, BLE Mesh Commissioning software will be able to accommodate it.

Easy And Fast Commissioning Of IoT Networks - No Redundant Data Entry And Operations

Bluetooth Mesh Commissioning software is designed to minimize the amount of work needed to create and commission new IoT bluetooth mesh networks. It eliminates redundant data entries while creating the new IoT networks. Mobile application uses details of the bluetooth mesh network devices and grouping data to do all the work behind the scene, soliciting the minimal input, navigation and clicks from the user.

IoT Networks Setup - Web Interface

  • Create bluetooth mesh applications and device types for your specific use cases once, then re-use this information for each new IoT network.
  • Use graphical drag and drop interface to create publisher / subscriber groups for the IoT bluetooth mesh networks, and specify how these groups should interact.
  • Use templates to copy configuration parameters for similar bluetooth mesh networks, then optionally apply changes.

Field Commissioning Of IoT Devices - Mobile Application

Apply preset configuration to multiple IoT devices with one click of a button.

  • Select IoT devices that should be a part of the same application or group, apply setting to all devices at once.
  • Select an IoT device and select multiple applications or groups to apply to the device at once.
