Hello,

Does vSpot needs at least 3 APs to calculate the devices positions?
I'm creating an environment to do some tests with Spot API and need to know if i could test it with only one AP.
For now, the locations i'm getting via API are all with x = 0 and y = 0 and i don't know if that's because i'm only testing with one AP.

Thanks!
Best regards,
Cristiano

Yes, triangulation between 3+ APs is necessary for more accurate location.

Thanks,

I have also set up a MQTT configuration to receive data via PUSH API but i didn't receive any message until now. Do you know if that could be caused by the same fact (i have only 1 AP) or could be some bad configuration of my MQTT?

Thanks,
Best regards,
