Bluetooth Keyboard HID (Human Interface Device) is a popular method of sending data from RFID, Barcode, Scales, Sensors, and such to iPads, iPhones, Android, Windows devices. Bluetooth Low Energy BLE mode introduced with Bluetooth 4.0 added a better method for fast and reliable Bluetooth device support. BLE mode discovers faster, sends data faster, and is more reliable than Bluetooth HID/Keyboard mode.Ser Serialio.com’s SerialMagic app provides the ability to post keystrokes from BLE devices as keystrokes to any application thus providing the same convenience of Bluetooth keyboard mode with the benefits of BLE mode.

As more applications rely on Internet connectivity, the reliability of the Internet becomes more core to the success of business. According to the National Internet Segments’ Reliability Survey in 2017-2018*, USA ranked 7th (moving down two places since last survey) Many ISPs tout reliability of their service, however the reality is more than 45% of ISP’s have only one connection to an upstream transit provider*. For many solutions, Cloud-In-Hand® stratus-io can improve reliability by mitigating poor Internet connectivity with it’s flexible and powerful off-line capability. Feel free to contact serialio.com

Are you considering Bluetooth for connecting RFID-NFC reader, barcode scanner or other application that requires reliable connectivity? Perhaps you’ve found questions about Bluetooth reliability like:Why isn’t Bluetooth more reliable 100% of the time?Why do Bluetooth connections randomly disconnect? Many solutions considering wireless Bluetooth connections concerned with reliability may opt for cables due to an unclear reputation of Bluetooth reliability fostered by poor implementations and low quality products. While cabled connections don’t have wireless connectivity issues, they also don’t have the flexibility of Bluetooth. Wireless connectivity gives flexibility for solutions where
