Client Location tracking.

In a lot of meraki Documentation you see a Blue Point where the Client is in the Map:

Re: Client Location tracking.

Hi Michel,

 

That little blue dot under your AP in the middle is what you are looking for, I've found that the location is not always accurate but it does help to give you an idea of where that device is. Below is an example of a few hosts in some of the networks I manage.

Hope this helps.

Re: Client Location tracking.

if the dot is directly under AP, it could be the the case that device is only seen by that AP.

Re: Client Location tracking.

To get good location accuracy the client has to be visible by 4 APs at the same time (aka, very dense).  You need a minimum of 3 APs to get it roughly right.

Here is an example where we have a few APs and I know where the device really is, the red dot marks that:

As you can see, the dot does appear within the circle and the circle is about 9m diameter.  Not amazingly accurate, but not too bad.

Great Thanks to all your Help. I have a 100m2 Flat and 4 Access Points. it seems that the accuracy is not to good to show where my Laptops are 😞 .

 

The distance between the AP are max 10 Meters.
