    Hi,

    I am using Kontakt Pro beacons for my product. I want to limit beacon range to 1 meter. With settings available in the Kontakt app I can go to -20dbm on iphone. That is creating a range close to 7 meter. How can I make it 1 meter?

    Hi Pavan,
    Radio waves don't abruptly stop at a certain distance, as much as we'd like to, you'll need to look into the RSSI values in your application to understand which range best works for you.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for a quick response. I understand that it's not possible to stop radio waves abruptly. My question is more on the settings part. Even with lowest RSSI values available in the control panel range I am getting is 6meter. Can I go below the RSSI values available in the control panel to achieve immediate range (May be through code)?

    Hi Pavan,
    The tx level 0 is the lowest you can go using our Smart Beacons.

    Hi Martin,

    I have Kontakt Pro beacons and lowest TX available for me is 1. I tried this in both iOS & Android app. Even web control panel has the same settings. I have used other Kontakt beacons and there '0' TX power is available.

    Hi Pavan,
    Beacon Pro is built on a different SoC, it's lowest transmission power level is 1.
