The Motorola Indoor Tracking solution requires the enhanced MOTOTRBO radios (i.e. XPR7550e/ DGP™8550e / XiR P8668i/ DP4801e). They should be Bluetooth equipped and Indoor Tracking support enabled. These radios can then communicate with any Bluetooth Beacons that support the iBeacon protocol (i.e. Estimote).
The coverage area of the beacons depends on the selected power level (feature varies by beacon) and could be in the range from 1 to 25 meters (~3 feet – 80 feet). The number of the beacons installed affects the accuracy of the location determination. Install several beacons to get more accurate information about subscriber’s location in a room.
Besides the Motorola Indoor Tracking solution, SmartPTT can work with third party option boards and beacons:
|Estimote||Kilchherr Elektronik||BluFi Wireless|
|Bluetooth iBeacons||K-TERM 42 Option Boards for the second generation of MOTOTRBO radios||Connect RTLS Option Boards and Beacons|
|K-TERM 72 Beacons in the different designs|
