What is the typical range of the Presto Kit sensors?

There are a few factors that determine the range of the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sensors included in the Presto Kit:

  • Each device has its own signal strength capabilities, so devices may have different overall range
  • The RF noise level of the environment
  • The physical structure of the environment, and the number of walls/floors and equipment the signal must pass through

In most environments, the sensors should work up to 100 feet from the Cascade-500W gateway, and in an open environment possibly several hundred feet.

When setting up the gateway and sensors for the first time, we recommend a close distance of less than 50 feet just to ensure all other functions of the devices are working before testing the range in a given environment.
