Wiliot IoT Pixels, off the shelf, are compliant to the Bluetooth standard and interoperable with qualified Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radios.
In terms of energizing, the main factors that need to be considered are the output power, duty cycle, and energizing pattern of the device in question. Today, Wiliot IoT Pixels require an intentional energy source for harvesting. The higher the output power, the stronger the energy source is.
Since Wiliot packets are anonymized and encrypted via a cloud-based resolver, an additional software layer must be running on the device to recognize the Wiliot packet and send it to the cloud. This routing layer encompasses two tasks: first, it recognizes Wiliot IoT Pixel data packets by the unique Wiliot prefix, and then it forwards those encrypted packets to the Wiliot Cloud. Upgrading standard Bluetooth devices with this capability is straightforward. In the future, Wiliot will provide a Reference Software for gateways to further simplify this integration.
