The new Simblee device has a lot of potential. The ease of integration with mobile devices opens up many possibilities.
I understand the use of Bluetooth low energy rather than wifi for communication, but this leads to a limitation which reduces the usefulness of Simblee. In order to have a permanent connection to the internet, the Simblee needs to be permanently linked to an iOS device. Yet a permanent internet connection is surely a necessity for a IoT device - the limitation of requiring proximity to the controlling device prohibits a lot of potential uses.
Might I suggest that this limitation could be reduced by providing desktop PC/Mac apps as well as iOS ones to link with the Simblee. That way, a Simblee could be linked to a server within Bluetooth proximity and hence permanently to the internet.
Are there any plans for such apps?
