Introducing Logi Bolt, the next generation wireless enterprise technology for strong, secure and powerful connections compatible with all common operating systems and platforms.
End users can pair up to six Logi Bolt devices with just one tiny USB receiver 1 via an encrypted, completely authenticated connection that remains stable even in extremely overloaded wireless environments.
With two connection options (Logi Bolt USB receiver and wireless Bluetooth® Low Energy technology), Logi Bolt wireless mice and keyboards are ideal for environments with differing operating systems and can be used with desktops, notebooks, tablets and even smartphones.
Logi Bolt is based on Bluetooth Low Energy—the global standard for simple and secure wireless connections. To minimise latencies, Logitech has introduced the - Bluetooth Low Energy specification using proprietary channel change algorithms. The result is a wireless technology that delivers industry-standard security and an unparalleled user experience even in very noise-intensive, overloaded environments.
Our aim is to use Logi Bolt to overcome IT challenges that present themselves while working in the office or at home such as compatibility requirements, overloaded wireless networks and increasing security expectations.
With Logi Bolt, we want to fulfil the growing number of enterprise security requirements. It is a wireless protocol combining Bluetooth® Low Energy technology security mode 1, security level 4 (also known as Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode) with additional Logitech security features to reduce vulnerabilities when the devices are paired with a Logi Bolt USB receiver.
The Logi Bolt USB receiver provides a robust and reliable connection in overloaded wireless environments with a range of up to 10 metres 2. Average latencies are lower than with other frequently used wireless protocols for overloaded, loud enterprise environments.3
Productivity is a business’s number one priority. Logitech has developed a connectivity technology that offers a solution for wireless environments with interferences. In many cases, Logi Bolt delivers 8× less latency3 than other frequently used wireless protocols. With Logi Bolt, your IT managers no longer have to worry about WLAN access point interferences or nearby wireless devices.
Logi Bolt delivers a reliable user experience when your office or home office wireless environment is often overloaded with radio frequencies.
End users want a choice of wireless connections and the IT department has to ensure that these are both reliable and secure. Each device with Logi Bolt functionality has two ways to connect—via wireless Bluetooth® Low Energy technology and the tiny Logi Bolt USB receiver that delivers even in overloaded wireless environments.
Logi Bolt is easy to use and works with nearly every operating system and platform including, but not limited to, Windows®, macOS®, Linux®4, Chrome OS™4, Android™5, iOS®5 and iPadOS®. In fact, Logi Bolt devices are even more universally compatible than most leading peripheral brands on the market.
Logi Bolt-compatible devices pair directly with your Logi Bolt USB receiver so that you are ready to go in an instant and connect up to six wireless Logi Bolt mice and keyboards. All you need is one USB port to connect all your peripherals no matter if they are at home or in the office. And should a receiver ever get lost, it can easily be replaced.
It’s easy to get more out of your Logi Bolt devices. Thanks to Logitech options, you can customise your products to suit your needs, and discover features you never thought were possible. You can also make use of Logitech Flow that enables the transfer of images, text and files between different PCs.
IT admins can easily deploy and manage firmware updates (DFU) remotely for any number of Logi Bolt devices6. What’s more, the powerful workflow and productivity software, Logitech Options, reduces admin work. IT departments can centrally define software settings and then install options on Windows® and macOS® systems to show users how easy it is to optimise their work experience. Thanks to Plug and Play functionality, help desk support is a thing of the past.

2 Wireless range depends on operating environment and computer settings.
3 Tests carried out by Logitech under controlled conditions in which the Logi Bolt USB receiver’s connection latency was compared to that of competitor wireless products. All other test conditions were the same. The test simulated conditions in noiseless/low-noise to noise-intensive environments defined as three (3) WLAN access points with 1000 mW, each a distance of 2 metres from the test object with additional devices nearby each with 8 mW: two (2) active Bluetooth devices and three (3) active Logitech Bolt product users at a distance of 0.5 m.
4 Sensor, wheels and buttons will be supported without adding additional drivers on Chrome OS and in most popular Linux distributions.
5 Supports wireless Logi Bolt devices.
6 Logi Bolt products connected to a Windows® or macOS® system via a Logi Bolt USB receiver, can be used and managed for any number of devices.
