  • What are the dimensions of the gateways?

  • What is the range of gateways and beacons?
    While BLE beacons and gateways can have 300ft on clear line of sight range, outdoors without any obstruction, given the interference indoors, most BLE enabled devices have a range of 80-100ft. We use a conservative range and place the gateways approximately 60ft apart to allow for overlapping coverage, that’s typically every other room in most hotels. However, we customize the range of the gateways based on the build and layout of each hotel to provide optimal coverage.
  • How does the build of my hotel affect the range of the gateways?
    The range of the gateways can be up to 100ft, but we customize it’s range for your specific property and area.
  • Do I need a gateway in every room?
    Generally speaking for most builds, hotels require a gateway in every other room. Depending on the build of your hotel and if there is concrete between rooms, a gateway in every room may be needed.
