A Bluetooth WiFi gateway is a device that connects Bluetooth devices to a WiFi network. It allows Bluetooth devices, such as sensors, beacons, or other IoT devices, to communicate with a WiFi network and exchange data with other devices on the network or remote servers or the cloud.
Bluetooth WiFi gateways have both Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities and are able to bridge the communication between these two technologies. They are often used in IoT (Internet of Things) applications, where they can be used to connect a variety of Bluetooth devices to a WiFi network, allowing them to communicate with each other and exchange data.
Bluetooth has a relatively short range of up to 100m, so using a Bluetooth WiFi gateway can allow Bluetooth devices to originate data over longer distances. Bluetooth WiFi gateways are easy to set up and configure, making them a convenient solution for connecting Bluetooth devices to a larger network.
