Installing Estimote ibeacons in the trees and lamposts in the Flag Market in Preston today. The higher up they go, the wider the range from the bluetooth beacons seems to be. We’re still wondering whether we should put one on top of the Cenotaph. There is a way up inside it, so we could, but if it makes a zone that covers the whole public square then it will drown out our mapping of the area into different zones.

It was a great excuse to climb up onto the lower part of the cenotaph to try placing beacons there. Unfortunately the signal strength from them seemed to be weakened by being surrounded on three sides by stone.
