All Bluetooth LE devices that are compliant to the Bluetooth LE 4.2 and higher Specifications. IoT devices directly connected to the internet, e.g. via LTE-M, prepared to communicate with nRF Cloud
Nordic Semiconductor has developed a Bluetooth LE gateway for iOS and Android. Our gateway implementations follow the guidelines defined in the "GAP REST API" and "GATT REST API" Bluetooth SIG Whitepapers.
Bluetooth is a short range technology that typically reaches a maximum of about 100 meters. To connect to the cloud, a gateway is required to extend that range and convert the Bluetooth protocol to IP.
The gateway code is public on GitHub.
All devices that comply with the Bluetooth LE Specification 4.2 and higher.
nRF Cloud supports all the Nordic Semiconductor peripheral SDK examples in addition to custom Bluetooth LE devices such as the Thingy and various demo applications.
nRF Cloud supports standard Bluetooth LE protocols between the Bluetooth LE device and the gateway and IP protocol between the gateway and the cloud.
This is planned for a future release.
nRF Cloud is a free developer tool provided by Nordic Semiconductor.
See the iBasis FAQ on DevZone. It is a bit dated, so here are some minor corrections:
- How can I determine how much data is left on my card? "Your
nRF Cloud LTE device dashboardnRF Cloud SIM Cards page will show the status..."
- How can I purchase additional data for my card? "The “Buy More Data” button will appear at the top of your nRF Cloud LTE device dashboard
when your current data plan is almost depleted.It is always visible now."
Yes, but only from the CREATED state. In progress jobs cannot be cancelled.
Currently, there is no limit for how many devices can be specified in a single FOTA job.
FOTA supports both REST and MQTT.
Yes! Both the device, and the gateway it is connected to must support FOTA.
