2. Click on the checkbox to select the Beacon to be added to the Zone. The proximity required for the triggering of the Beacon should also be selected from the drop-down list.
The selectable proximities are:

  • Immediate – The Beacon has to be almost touching, or within an inch of, a device for the trigger to occur.
  • Near – The Beacon can be up to approximately 6 feet away from a device for the trigger to occur.
  • Far – The Beacon is farther than 6 feet away but still within receiving distance of the maximum range of the signal for the trigger to occur.

3. A list of Beacons (along with Geoline™ and Geofences) within a Zone can be viewed when the slider menu on the map interface is expanded. A Beacon can be deleted from a Zone by selecting the ‘X’ button next to a Beacon in the list.
