Developers can use the 2JCIE-BL01 in applications such as home remote monitoring, building automation, outdoor weather monitoring, and factory environment monitoring. The sensor module

measures and collects data for temperature, humidity, light, ultraviolet (UV) index, barometric pressure, sound, and acceleration (3-axis). The device transmits collected sensor data via Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology over a cloud service using a free downloadable smartphone app. The sensor offers a communication range of approximately 10 metres, with a data output rate that varies between 1 second and 60 minutes. Developers can set threshold values to have the app notify users of environmental changes, abnormal sensor readings and uncomfortable conditions through push notifications. Developers can also set the device to transmit sensor data in broadcaster mode, enabling an environmental monitoring system in combination with common gateway devices.


OMRON’s 2JCIE-BL01 environment sensor measures 46 × 39 × 15 mm and weighs 16 grams, including the battery.
