Maps enable you to upload custom map layout, mark locations and enable real-time Indoor Location for your customers so that they can easily find their way to a desired point. App uses a combination of iBeacon technology to enable accurate Indoor Location.
Minimal requirements for Indoor Location: at least 3 beacons per 10 m2 room.
Location is a point you add on the uploaded map to highlight the user position as soon as the user gets in proximity of the beacon in this area. Location is directly related to a specific beacon, but Location's point on a digital map should not reflect the physical location of the beacon in most scenarios. For example, if you have a beacon located in Room A on a south wall, it is best to mark Location with a point in the center of the Room A on a digital map because indoor maps provide approximate user position only.
What are the optimal beacon settings for Indoor Location?
We recommend to set your beacons to -16 dBm broadcasting power and at 300 ms advertising interval - this will enable a precision to about 3 meters (9.8 feet). You can also use Estimote Stickers for location triggering, the requirement is that they need to be set to iBeacon protocol (not Nearable) and each Sticker needs to have the same UUID (as a default each Sticker has a different UUID).
