    FAQ and Support Resources for the BlueCats BC-510

    What are Bluetooth Beacons?
    Bluetooth Beacons are BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) transmitters that require very little infrastructure to setup and offer very long read ranges. Bluetooth Beacons broadcast their data to nearby Bluetooth Gateways to identify and interact with them. This enables BLE devices to be used in a wide variety of different applications, usually involving the tracking of an item or person. BLE devices are battery powered, and can function for dozens of months straight without requiring a change in battery.

    Can the sensitivity be adjusted?
    Yes, the Edge Relay software allows you to set sensitivity to ensure only certain readings are captured (for example only send data when a reading is high indicating very close proximity).

    What power and network connectivity options does an Edge Relay support?
    For permanent deployments, the Edge Relay can be powered by POE or 5V MicroUSB. For temporary deployments, appropriate battery packs and solar cells which supply 5V can be used. The Edge Relay can be connected to your network via Wifi or Ethernet/POE.
