[ What is ]

RuuviTag ?

RuuviTag is an advanced open-source sensor beacon platform designed to fulfill needs of business customers, developers, makers, students and even regular people.

It can act as a standard Eddystone™ / iBeacon™ proximity beacon, but it has potential to be so much more.

By having a way to measure temperature, relative air humidity, air pressure and acceleration it's possible to cover numerous use cases.

RuuviLab community site shows how the Tag can be used in many different ways:

  • Portable weather station
  • Eddystone proximity beacon
  • Modern geocaching
  • Vehicle locator
  • Espruino JavaScript interpreter
  • Wirepas Connectivity mesh networking
  • And more...

Easy to Use

We've made it simple. RuuviTag works out of the box.

It's also easy and straightforward to follow tutorials on RuuviLab in order to enable many new uses for the devices.

Updating the software doesn't require any previous knowledge and can be done Over-the-Air using an Android/iOS phone.

[ Program in ]

JavaScript

Would you like to create something special with your RuuviTags but learning curve to low-level C programming sounds a bit steep? Don't worry. It's possible to tinker with the Tag using JavaScript programming language.

RuuviTag is officially supported by Espruino.

[ Hardware and Software ]

Open-Source

Did you know that both our hardware and software are open-source? You can find both HW and SW on GitHub.

Choosing open-source over proprietary has many advantages:

  • Safe. No risks of future vendor lock-ins.
  • Save money and time by having a tested code-base to begin with in your own firmware development.
  • Easy and fast prototyping (i.e. with external sensors).
  • Hardware and software modifications are possible.
  • Community is power. New uses, code snippets and more released in regular basis.

[ Long Range ]

Superior Antenna

What can we say? The range is reasonable.

We have paid a lot of attention in antenna design and the antenna is tuned with Nordic Semiconductor.

To showcase the performance of the antenna, we have measured more than one kilometer ultimate maximum ranges using a stock mobile phone as a beacon packet receiver.

Not always long ranges are required but having an efficient and perfectly tuned antenna, a lower transmission power can be used. Which leads to a longer battery life.

NFC™ Coil

In addition of the long-distance radio antenna, RuuviTag has also an NFC-A tag functionality.

Battery Holder

After many trials and errors we came up with a perfect battery holder mechanism. The circuit board material bends enough to firmly keep the battery in place. A patent would be pending, but we don't like those.

[ CE / FCC / RoHS / IP67 / Bluetooth / Eddystone / iBeacon ]

Waterproof

RuuviTag has all the major certifications including Bluetooth® Declaration ID and Company ID.

The enclosure is made of high-quality polycarbonate and designed to open easily by retaining its perfect resistance against water.

The environmental sensor breathes through an IP67 certified water-resistant vent sticker made by Gore.

Bluetooth Works with iBeacon Eddystone

Google lists manufacturers who provide beacons with full support for Eddystone. Ruuvi is one of them.
