Card Beacon - Power Saving

It is recommended to turn on the Power saving feature if you would like to extend the battery life of your Card beacon. The estimated battery life of a Card beacon with Power Saving mode 'ON', considering a daily usage of 8 hours and an interval of 550ms is 18 months.

The motion sensor integrated in the Card Beacon makes it possible to enable Power Saving when the device is not moving. 

WARNING It is not recommended to enable Power Saving with Intervals greater or equal to 3500 ms. Turning it on will have a more significant impact on battery life than having it turned off.

Power saving is disabled by default. Simply click on the switch to enable it and save the changes. Once this is done, you will see the warning indicating that you need to synchronize your beacon using the Kontakt.io Admin app.
