Does the visitor count number include the staff members in my locations?

BT Wi-Fi Insight's algorithms can determine which devices belong to staff members and exclude them from the visitor count. BT Wi-Fi Insight examines the duration and frequency of Wi-Fi signals from devices to determine which devices need to be eliminated from the dashboard. For example, in a retail setting devices that are detected for 3 or more days out of the last 10 days with a duration of 2 or more hours are filtered out as staff.

BT Wi-Fi Insight’s algorithms can differentiate between devices belonging to people walking by on the street and devices in vehicles driving by on the road.
