The maximum range of beacons is around 70 meters (230 feet). It can be also adjusted in 7 different levels. However effective range depends on several external factors of a specific location. Beacon signal can be limited by physical obstacles and scale of it depends on the material and size of it. Also other radio signals, like those coming from other beacons, may cause some interferences to Beacon broadcasting.
Out of the box, Kontakt.io Beacons have Transmission Power set to give a range of around 20 meters or less depending on location which works well for many applications. You can adjust it to your needs easily, using our Mobile app or Web Panel.
How precise is the Kontakt.io Beacon’s range?
You should be able to detect beacons from the maximum range, down to a few inches or centimeters away from the beacon (depending on which level of TxPower is selected). Note: at the higher ranges there is a bigger risk of interference and signal fluctuation so the beacons can only be precise within feet / meters.
