Bluetooth Range Measurements, One-Way Data transmission

Measurement site, methods, and raw data are available. In Summaries:

  • 760 meters, both antennas at 4.2 meters above ground ( over 60% Fresnel zone clearance).

  • 390 meters, both antennas at 1.52 meters (5 feet), typical height of thermostat in the USA.

Two-Way Range Measurements Using Pre-BLE 5 Mesh Stacks

Antenna 1.7 meters above ground. Trees and bushes nearby. Measured in 4/2017.

  • 270 meters

More interference in actual application is very likely. Range can be shorter.
