Can you determine the position of a device using beacons?

You need at least 3 beacons in order to do things like triangulation or trilateration.

Signal strength can be affected by your beacon's environment and other factors, so the location will be an approximation. The more beacons you have, the better the results will be.

    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%

    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?

    Variation is expected within a certain margin.
