Okay so once I have ‘configured’ the beacon, which the video instructs - that will essentially enable me to project a url up to up to 1.4km? Ad if it can enable me to do that, what settings do I need to employ?
Also what do you mean about “smartphone (receiver)”?
Like, what makes it hard for someone to receive my notification?
Also I did see the video on the range and from what I have understood, the range was close to 500m - which brings me to my next question:
Does the beacon emit BLE in a radius of 500m, horizontally and vertically or does it project in a straight forward line for example?
I have drawn a radius on a map, and I want to know if it’s possible to have my URL show up up to the radius, the radius is 500m and in a park, here is the URL to it:
It’s impossible to say exact number because range depends on obstacles and environment. I suggest that you test range in environment you are planning to use. Longest ranges are measured with line of sight.
It’s not possible draw any exact radius - from the same reason your smartphone GSM signal is not always the same. It depends on location and environment.
Different smartphones perform differently - it means that max range depends also receiver = smartphone.
