Placement of Sapphire Eyes

Where to Place

Typical Coverage

The coverage radius of a Sapphire Eye 2200 is approximately 20m/65ft in an office space with walls and furniture, 45m/150ft in an open space. Keep in mind that the Sapphire Eye 2200’s RSSI is 5-7 dB higher than a normal laptop’s Wi-Fi antenna.  The Sapphire Eye 250 has a similar RSSI to that of a laptop.
