Techopedia explains Bluetooth Brick

A battery-powered Bluetooth brick is similar in size to a paperback book and weighs less than a pound. One of the salient features of the Bluetooth brick is that it can be placed in hard-to-reach areas and transmit information with the help of Bluetooth technology, which is ideal for short-range wireless communication. There are many manufacturers exploring longer-range Wi-Fi solutions to replace cables; due to lower cost and portability features, Bluetooth bricks dominate markets such as manufacturing industries. Most Bluetooth bricks are designed for transparent wireless serial connections.

Compared to cabling, Bluetooth bricks are the most cost-effective alternatives. It is one of the best devices for monitoring and transmitting information, even in complex physical environments. Furthermore, Bluetooth bricks use less power, hence the batteries last longer than usual.
