I have some questions regarding the MDEK1001 development kit.
The anchors were placed in a rectangular room above head height as asked in the manual, and the locations of the anchors marked in the app. However, although placed in a rectangular shape and placed well within the 30m constraint, the app seems to not show the anchors in a rectangular shape?
As I am not too familiar with this kit, I am confused as to why it shows a trapezoidal type of shape instead. The tag’s movements are also not being sensed for some reason? From what I am aware all four anchors and the tag have batteries are connected to the network.
I was hoping that this is some beginners mistake that someone could help with?
could you post some drawing of the floor plan? At the beginning you should reduce the anchor separation to cca 20m. 30m might be a doable but don’t forget that on diagonal cca 42m and that is beyond the system capability.
For such a large system don’t use auto positioning - it might not work well as the auto positioning is only for demo purpose. The best here is to aim & set position manually.
Please also note that the android app is using BLE for communication and 30m distance is far beyond the BLE operating distance. Then for updating anchors position/status you need to go closer to the anchor. The same it is for the TN, the TN must be near the android app.
Hi @leapslabs ,
Thanks for your reply! It’s actually working now – perhaps there was a different issue at hand. Whatever it was, it seems to be fixed now. Thank you for your advice, though!
