Bluefox Development Kit

Bluefox opens up unique possibilities for IOT ecosystems

Bluefox v2.4 is the first Bluetooth enabled Sigfox development platform that effectively opens up the local environment to multi sensor solutions.

The Bluefox development platform is perfect for developing IOT solutions ranging from assisted living environments where more than one type of sensor is required to low power tracking solutions that scan Wi-Fi mac addresses for resolution by google locate.

The development platform consists of a Sigfox modem, a dual core processor supporting 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi in both station and access point modes and a 2.4Ghz Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy radio. The 4MB of flash memory provides plenty of space for customer specific applications and data storage prior to aggregation processing and communication.
