Is low-power RF right for you?
Keep it simple: Consider AIR’s low-power RF approach (and your own proprietary protocol) when Bluetooth, ZigBee, WiFi, and others are overkill for the job.
Nothing against popular, branded interoperability protocols: They’re a vital part and energizing force in the wireless industry. However, there are many instances when using low-power RF with your own proprietary protocol is perfectly adequate for the job. Especially in instances where you are working with a limited power supply (eg: battery power, constant recharging, energy harvesting, etc.) Below are some instances where simple wireless duties might be accomplished with the equally simple low-power RF approach.
