Atamate uses Bluetooth mesh as the wireless protocol for the system. Bluetooth mesh allows every Bluetooth node to relay messages as well as to send and receive them, minimising the system's power requirement. Bluetooth's 2Mbit/s bandwidth is substantially greater than the 250kbit/s offered by Z-wave and Zigbee.
As all the devices sit on one platform: each can communicate with the others. This level of interoperability gives holistic control with data seamlessly being passed around the system.
An Atamate system is designed to include as few physical devices as possible - the Mesh-3 ceiling unit includes a sensor array, Bluetooth processor and 2 relays. Having fewer devices lowers the cost of an Atamate system dramatically.
Bluetooth is inherently secure, with encryption and security key requirements. It is an open standard owned by no one organisation, ensuring that Atamate has full control over the privacy of devices with Bluetooth installed.
Using power from existing circuits where possible and energy harvesting devices where applicable, Atamate have produced a building management system that is truly retrofittable.
