5  Bluetooth Adapter

No BLE support? No problem. Your computers can still connect to our Bluetooth® Smart devices wirelessly.

Because PCs and older Macs don't natively have Bluetooth Smart (BLE) connectivity, this simple USB adapter installs the drivers necessary to connect your desktops and laptops to our Wireless Sensors and to connect the AirLink wirelessly if desired. Full compatibility details are also available.
