Ease Beacon Development with Faraday Bags

Got lots of beacons around and having trouble isolating your particular test beacon? While some beacons can be physically turned off, many others can only be set to stop advertising via changing their settings. Moving between tests can be time consuming. A solution is to use a faraday bag to hide beacons you want to ignore for now. The bag is also useful for forcing iBeacons to go out of range (for about 30 secs) so they will trigger again on iOS.

We stock a small and large version.

The bag has an internal wire mesh that keeps Bluetooth signals inside the bag. One thing to beware of is you need to keep the bag closed at the top to stop signals escaping. Fold over the top and close the bag against itself along the line of the velcro.

Faraday RF-Shield Bags Back in Stock

Our large Faraday Radio Frequency RF shield nylon bags are back in stock.

Faraday bags can be very useful during development when you want to bring beacons in and out of range or need to hide development beacons. They are also useful during setup when you want to shield uncomissioned beacons temporarily.

These bags were originally designed for military, intelligence and police agencies to prevent seized devices from being remotely altered. They shield WiFi, Bluetooth and phone signals up to 70dBm. They can also be used with phones and tablets for personal anti-radiation health reasons, preventing tracking or avoiding communication when you don’t want to be interrupted.
