Presence

The presence filter is used to help you determine how many aggregated devices there are in, or around the venue using the filters.

Clients: Determine the specific client you’d like to set the filters for.
Hotspots: The specific location you’d like to set the filter for.
Period: Span of time represented.
Signal Strength: Allows a client to filter in or out devices based on their signal strength, The signal strength can indicate whether a device was actually on a property, or just near that property.
I.E a marketing manager at a car dealership may want to get an estimation of traffic that passes by their dealership, they would  select “weak” signal strength because they want a count of all devices that were seen because they were most likely looking at the dealership signage. In the same scenario, a sales manager doesn’t care how many devices were seen, they are more  interested in seeing the number of  people on the lot, so he would select “good” or “excellent” so he could filter out devices that were further away from the nodes.

Proximity: Line Graph of Passers by and MACs seen per day, over a 7-day period. MACs seen being total number of unique devices seen per day. Passers by being MACs SEEN – Visitors seen that day. For a client user, all the devices seen by that client user client’s hotspots. For an operator user, all the devices seen by that operator user operator’s clients (and by extension those clients’ hotspots). For reference purposes, this data only includes devices with an RSSI > -85.

Guests: Line Graph of Visitors and Connections per day, over a 7-day period. Visitors being total number of unique devices seen per day that are considered “visitors” (have been in the area for at least two minutes and have consistently been seen at least once every 5 minutes). Connections being seen that day that have actively connected to an access point. For a client user, all the devices seen by that client user client’s hotspots. For an operator user, all the devices seen by that operator user operator’s clients (and by extension those clients’ hotspots). For reference purposes, this data only includes devices with an RSSI > -85.

Dwell Time: How long a device has dwelled within any hotspot. These devices are all considered “visitors”. This data will be larger than the visitors count, because it includes all reports received from access points for a MAC address.

Loyalty: Whether a device has been seen in any hotspot at least twice (has entered, then left an area, and then reentered), or if it is the first time that it has been seen. These devices can all be considered as “visitors”. This data will be larger than the visitors count, because it includes all reports received from access points for a MAC address.

Times are based on the hotspot settings.
