  • AB BLE Gateway

This gateway reads raw Bluetooth LE advertising data and sends it on to your chosen HTTP server, MQTT server or websocket server via WiFi. Supports throughput up to 50 beacons/sec.

This gateway sends raw Bluetooth advertising up to the server together with MAC address, RSSI of the beacon, the ip address and id of the gateway:
