Comparing Bluetooth Low Energy Versions BLE4.2 vs. BLE5.0

  • BLE4.2 and BLE5.0 are fully compatible with each other. There are no issues with interoperability.
  • BLE5.0 is a newer version that offers some advantages such as lower power consumption, which can benefit individual devices like battery powered switches.
  • However, to take full advantage of BLE5.0’s features like increased device capacity per network node, all devices on the system need to be BLE5.0.
  • All newly developed products are using BLE5.0 now.
  • Existing products are upgraded to BLE5.0 whenever safety listing updates are needed.
  • Many products already have BLE5.0 versions developed, but we may not be shipping those versions yet.
  • Full system transition to BLE5.0 is expected by late 2024, which will allow up to 200 devices per network node (increased from 100 devices with BLE4.2).
