Sammy uses Bluetooth LE to connect to your phone. The typical range of Bluetooth LE is 15m to 30m. The actual range depends on your specific location because the Bluetooth signal can be absorbed by walls or other hard objects. In an open area (e.g. outside in a park) the range can extend up to 50m.

Sammy’s range also depends on her orientation. Her antenna emits the strongest signal straight out of her right side and to the front of her face. You can try playing with her orientation to improve results. Aim her right side in the direction of your phone to achieve the longest possible range.

We're working on extending Sammy's functionality and range by creating BleepBleeps Cloud.
