Assign beacon to individual room


#1

Hi,

After reading the documentation I did not come across any information regarding assigning one beacon per room.

In theory, I would like a user to be picked up by one beacon in one room based on range and not be picked up by a beacon in another room close by.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Hi AppleKidd,

You adjust the effective range of a beacon by modifying its signal strength. Depending on the physical parameters of the walls, the signal might or might not penetrate them. For Proximity beacons, the effective range can be anywhere between 100m and 10cm, so you’ll have to experiment with different settings and see if you’re able to match the dimensions of the room. Be aware, however, that due to the nature of radio waves, it’s impossible to have a 100% stable & precise system.
