The last software included in Meshlium Scanner increments from 70% to the 95%* the amount of smartphones, tablets, hands free, and laptops detected by its MAC address by scanning WiFi and Bluetooth signals.

* Under which conditions do you get a 95% detection rate of devices? Read more in the Smartphone detection chapter of the Meshlium Technical Guide

1. Detection of the current version

It includes any of the last models even those that implement low consumption techniques when using the radio interfaces:

  • iPhone (*all models*): 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, iPad (2, 3, 4, Air, Mini, Retina).
  • Android (*all models*): Nexus, Samsung Galaxy, LG, Sony Xperia, HTC, Motorola, Huawei, Asus,…

2. Minimum time between scanning intervals

The improvement of the number of devices detected in the new version is due to the reduction between scanning intervals. Now it is just 1 second against the 20 seconds of the previous versions. So even those models that have long cycles between advertising WiFi frames (beacons) will be captured.

3. Vehicle Traffic Monitoring

Due to the reduction of the time between scanning intervals, now vehicle traffic detection rate has increased from 50% to 80% even at a speed of 100 Km/h (62 miles/h).
