Mapping Large Indoors Places like School

Indoors, GPS technology is ineffective as line of sight to satellites is required (general GPS limitation). AngelSense provides different tools to overcome these limitations.

Our latest AngelSense Guardian GPS 2 also supports Wi-Fi-based locations. In large indoor places with good Wi-Fi coverage this may provide additional hints to the child's exact location. 

At the School location e.g., you could name Wi-Fi networks in order to get an idea for the potential area of school the child is located. (ex. office, classroom, etc...). This mapping is done once and then you can enjoy the insights of your child's location within school.

To do this mapping you need to know where your child is currently e.g. by using the listen-in feature or knowing their itinerary.
You can then name the first hotspot in the list (the strongest one) so that next time your child is near that hotspot, you will know the location.

Note: You are not connecting to these networks, only detecting their location relevant to the device.

Naming Wi-Fi networks: 

Select the pencil icon next to the Wi-Fi network you wish to name and enter the name.
