Bluetooth low energy is a new, open standard developed by the Bluetooth SIG. It`s targeted to address the needs of wireless sensing applications such as ultra-low power consumption, fast connection time, reliability and security. Bluetooth low energy consumes 10-20 times less power and is able to transmit short bursts of data 50 times quicker than classic Bluetooth solutions.
Bluetooth low energy is designed for emerging applications and markets such as health and fitness, consumer medical, smart energy, industrial automation and security, but it still embraces the very same features we already know from the classic, well-established Bluetooth technology; robustness, security, interoperability and global availability.

Bluetooth low energy devices come in 2 flavours;
Single-mode devices that only support Bluetooth low energy and are optimised for low-power, low-cost and small size.
Dual-mode devices that support Bluetooth low energy and classic Bluetooth technologies. These are interoperable with all previous Bluetooth specification versions.
