Devices such as home and kitchen appliances which are configured to interact directly with the cloud through Wi-Fi. Adding BLE capability for device-phone interactions is recommended to improve customers' onboarding experience and troubleshooting capabilities.
Typically deployed with battery operated, bluetooth-only devices which use the phone as a gateway to the cloud. PaaG architecture allows Bluetooth-only devices to enjoy the extensive capabilities of the Copilot platform. Copilot connect encapsulates the logic required when the phone is used as a gateway to the cloud and supports full offline mode when internet connection is not available.
Usually deployed with devices which are always connected, mobile (no access to Wi-Fi) and have a less sensitive BOM (Bill of Materials). The advantages of this configuration is the simple setup process of the device and the independence in a router or mobile phone.
