Add RF Blocking Zone

The RF Blocking Zone is an extension of the QSP's Smart Edge feature, which allows users to define so-called “thick walls” that do not allow any tag signals to pass through. This simulates conditions in which the real-world materials do not allow radio signals to pass, e.g. thick concrete walls.

This feature should only be used for deployments where the marked zones really are completely confined spaces that do not allow RF signals to pass such as prisons.

To add RF Blocking Zones, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the project in the QSP.
  2. Create a Zone Group for the zones that will have the RF Blocking Smart Edge enabled.
    Note: For instructions on how to create a Zone Groups, please see the Create Zone Groups section.
  3. In the panel on the right, select which tags will be affected by the RF Blocking Smart Edge to enable the Smart Edge features.

  4. Once the Smart Edge features are enabled, check the RF blocking zone checkbox to enable the RF Blocking Smart Edge.

  5. To add zones to the Zone Group, use the object tree on the left to navigate zone that you want to add and in the panel on to right select the relevant Zone Group.

    Note: Once the RF Blocking Smart Edge has been applied, you will notice that the zone edges will appear thicker and a diagonal line texture will be added to the zone in the map view to visually indicate that the RF Blocking feature is enabled.
