Can you determine the position of a device using beacons?

    Ok , how can I know the signal strength ? when I use kontakt app , I just see 0 or 100% signal strength , so I need know about the Closeness rate from the beacon , not just 100% or 0%

    Regards ,

    Hello Yusuf,

    Like I've mentioned in my email to you, it all depends on the platform that you're developing your app for. E.g. on iOS these details are available in the CLBeacon objects.

    Hi, the accuracy of CLBeacon varies a lot until leaving still. This is normal?

  • Martin

    Variation is expected within a certain margin.

    Im developing Android app using beacons. Can you help me, what type of beacon should I buy If I want to measure the distance between app user and beacon?

    I need a beacon that know to send multiple packets at a time. And know to measure the real distance. 


    Thank you.
