What is the exact unit for desiredTrigerredMeanDistance? Is it Meters or Decimeters?

Hello @Miriam

We are trying to create a Proximity zone with custom range of 10.0 meters at which we need the events to be triggered for both entry and exit. But when we provide the value as 10.0 for desiredTrigerredMeanDistance, it is not detecting at all. So we tried to give the value in decimetres by multiplying with 10 and it started triggering the entry events but only some time for exit events.

If someone can guide me in achieving this will be really helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there!

This value is in meters. I would suggest you to check the article here: https://developer.estimote.com/proximity/ios-tutorial/, especially About the Proximity Zone range part.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks @Miriam. I followed above tutorial, but results are not matching. When we provide the value as 10.0 for desiredTrigerredMeanDistance, beacons are detected at 1m distance.
Please review the code i am using and let me know if i need to modify https://gist.github.com/ChandraGillellamudi/fec9061629743e307c5a18057968ac87

Hi @Miriam,

Do you think the beacon triggered mean distance varies based on the elevation of the Beacon?

Also can you please guide on increasing the ranging(time to monitor the beacons detection) of beacons? Because sometimes we not able to detect the beacons although he beacons are beside the mobile devices.
