CSRmesh® Development Kit

CSRmesh® is a protocol running over Bluetooth® Smart that enables messages to be relayed over multiple Bluetooth Smart devices, allowing for comprehensive home automation connectivity solutions. The Development Kit introduces a simplified yet comprehensive development platform for product designers who want to rapidly prototype networking of Bluetooth Smart products using the CSRmesh protocol.

Many leading module suppliers have adopted CSR Bluetooth Smart. These third party modules enable developers to easily and cost effectively integrate CSR’s award winning technologies into their applications – for example, CSRmesh is fully supported on all CSR101x modules to allow the development of innovative turnkey solutions for the IoE.

Kits are available to purchase online from CSR's Sales & Solution Provider web shops. Alternatively, please go to the “Get this product” box below for details of CSR’s network of distributors, representatives, module suppliers and design houses in your country.
