Spaces allow you to personalize some parameters used by the system to compute the traffic metrics. You can reach the Setting page from Analytics → Settings.
Dwell of engaged Visits
- This defines the minimum time duration to consider a Visit as an Engaged Visit. When you change this value, the change will reflect in all the Locations.
Maximum Visit Duration
- This defines the maximum duration of Visits that will be considered in the metrics computation. All Visits longer then this threshold are not considered in the analytics.
Visit Session Timeout
- This defines the maximum permissible time where the AP does not detect any signal from a Visitor.
- The available variation in the range is between 15 to 1440 minutes with the default value set at 15 minutes.
By enabling this setting you allow the platform to apply advanced automatic classification and filtering mechanisms that optimize the computation of the traffic metrics by identifying noise and non-visitor devices.
In the section called Calibrate Traffic Parameters, you can refine some parameters that impact the way the events are classified in Visits or Passerby Visits. You can change the value of the parameter for each specific Location or for all the Locations together.
Important: please note that when you make a change, the system will start using the new parameters to classify the events. Events classified prior to making the change will remain the same and will not be affected by the change.
Minimum dwelling time for visit
- This is the duration in which the end-user must be seen within a certain signal level to be considered a “Visitor”. By increasing this parameter value, the requirement for a visit becomes more stringent: the end-user has to be detected with a “strong” enough signal level for a longer time. As this value increases, the number of visits decreases while increasing the number of passersby.
- The available variation range is between 2 and 30 minutes with the default value set at 5 minutes.
Visit - First sample minimum signal level
- This defines the minimum signal level that is required to be considered a “Visitor” if maintained for a minimum “visit dwelling time”. By increasing the minimum signal level, the requirement for a visit becomes more stringent: the radius of the interest area becomes smaller, and consequently, the number of visitors and visits decreases, while the number of passersby increases.
- The available signal level variation range is represented using percentages and the default “Minimum signal for visit” is set to 30%. The value 0% corresponds to an RSSI of -90dBm, a value of 100% corresponds to -60dBm
-90dBm -87dBm -84dBm -81dBm -78dBm -75dBm -72dBm -69dBm -66dBm -63dBm -60dBm 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100%
- For small locations or locations with a high number of APs, we recommend increasing the minimum level of the signal and thereby reducing the area of interest for the evaluation of visitor.
