Bluetooth Dongle

Bluetooth USB adapter for use with Shearwell Stick Reader

Data can be read from Shearwell Stick Reader over a Bluetooth wireless connection. Many laptops have Bluetooth built in, but for those that don't and for most desktop PCs an adaptor can be plugged into a USB socket on the PC to enable Bluetooth on the computer.

Many Bluetooth adaptors will work with our Stick Reader but if you'd like one that has worked well for us, this is a good one to choose.

This dongle works with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. If you have a different Windows operating system or need advice please don't hesitate to contact us.
