Developing with Amazon Sidewalk#
Amazon Sidewalk is a shared wireless network that uses Amazon Sidewalk Bridges, such as compatible Amazon Echo and Ring devices, to enable communication among devices operating on the network. Amazon Sidewalk enables reliable, low-bandwidth, and long-range connectivity at home and beyond. It connects IoT devices and applications such as outdoor lights, motion sensors, and location-based devices. It uses Bluetooth Low Energy for short-distance communication and CSS (Chirp Spread Spectrum) and FSK (Frequency-Shift Keying) radio protocols at 900 MHz frequencies to cover longer distances.
