World Leading BLE performance

Using the BlueCats high performance BC011 Module, and an ultra sensitive external UFL Bluetooth Antenna ensures maximum coverage and accuracy.


On or off the cloud

Easily stream data over UDP or directly to AWS IoT, IBM BlueMix, Microsoft Azure IoT or to YOUR local / cloud hosted MQTT broker.


Track any BLE Device

Scan and forward real time advertisement data from BlueCats or 3rd Party Bluetooth devices. Report real time proximity of any iBeacon, Eddystone or BlueCats Beacon.


Advanced Network Capabilities

Enterprise grade networking capabilities built on the powerful OpenWRT foundation. Centralised monitoring with the BlueCats Cloud.

Build it your way

edge-side-600-8 copy


Run entirely within a private network or communicate with the Cloud securely over SSL and MQTT with TLS support. End-to-end security for your tracking and sensor data to by switching to BlueCats’ proprietary secure protocols.

Device Monitoring

Production ready with multisite device monitoring and management in the BlueCats Cloud.

The Heart of your IoT Project

Scan and forward BLE Beacon and Sensor Data – use the BlueCats Module and build your own advanced sensor.

Developer friendly / Ready to Customise

Advance the functionality further with custom packages built on the core BlueCats scanning libraries.

Need a location engine? We’ve got you covered.

Unlike any location engine available, the BlueCats Location engine uses advanced patented algorithms that have been tried and tested across other RTLS technologies.

Send data the way you want it

Control the flow of data with device filtering, throttling and our advanced signal smoothing algorithms.

  • Filter out the noise by including only specific Bluetooth address ranges, iBeacon regions, Eddystone namespaces or custom payload filters – or send everything!
  • Control the data flow – set limits on maximium devices to track and how often to report them to your servers.
  • Advanced signal smoothing algorithms provide optimal accuracy for proximity tracking applications while reducing traffic to your servers
  • Powerful on-board diagnostics provide insights into every signal received in real-time.

How it works


Detect Bluetooth devices in range, including all popular formats: iBeacon, Eddystone and the full range of BlueCats secure, sensor and custom protocols


Control the flow of data with advanced signal smoothing, filtering & throttling. Include the information you need with ready to go applications for proximity tracking, sensor measurement or custom integrations.


Send all beacon sighting data to private network or cloud servers. Endpoints supported include UDP, MQTT & HTTP/HTTPS.

Industry Applications



Collect, analyse, and share valuable insights about the movements and trends of Assets and Personnel within your organisation, office, or commercial premises.  Save money and increase productivity through better space utilisation powered by BlueCats products.


Improve the safety of your construction site by easily monitoring, in real time, when and where contractors check in/out of your project site. Increase response times, improve evacuation times, and drive down costs through smarter asset and personnel management.

Industrial & Engineering

Deploy, manage, and monitor your industrial or engineering project faster using Edge Relay.  Using Edge you will be able to deploy, scan, and communicate your BLE data with ultimate ease and versatility, giving you full control on how, when, and where to send your BLE data.


Quickly locate assets, keep track of patients and staff, while monitoring any array of sensors

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the sensitivity be adjusted?

Yes, the Edge Relay software allows you to set sensitivity to ensure only certain readings are captured (for example only send data when a reading is high indicating very close proximity)

What power and network connectivity options does an Edge Relay support?

For permanent deployments, the Edge Relay can be powered by POE or 5V MicroUSB. For temporary deployments, appropriate battery packs and solar cells which supply 5V can be used. The Edge Relay can be connected to your network via Wifi or Ethernet/POE

Do you have an installation service?

We are working with a number of Systems Integrators in the USA, UK and Australia to enable smooth rollouts across the globe.

We can train your existing computer network or facilities management personnel in the use of our tools to help with an in-house rollout.

Can you recommend any particular brand of network hardware?

BlueCats have tested our Edge Relay hardware with common brands like Netgear, Ubiquiti and TP-Link without issue, however this is not an endorsement of these products.

We suggest that most renowned brands of wired or unwired network service hardware will be able to manage the data streams from Edge Relay.
