Dear Members,

Our smartphone send beacon signal frequently and I want to know that does smartphone's mode affects its beacon frequency. I have observed beacon frequency is high when it is active compared to when it is in sleep mode. What about when we are on a call or downloading some stuff from internet does frequency changes or not how can learn about these stuff kindly tell me link.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Ozzie

Dear Members,

I am working on project in which I am trying to detect number of people in a certain area by detecting their smartphones' wifi packets. I am able to detect people in controlled environment in which people just need to turn their smartphones' wifi on and they will be detected but the problem is that I am also detecting unwanted devices like laptops, switches, routers and other wifi devices. To filter out switches and routers I am using their access point field which is always some thing unlike smartphones. Now laptops and other wifi devices like scanners and printers need to be filtered out to and for that I thought may be there is some principle MAC address difference between smartphones and other devices that I can use for filtering.

Waiting for your response.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Ozzie
