> There isn't any logic in Kismet to do it right now, but you could try setting up boundary sensors - experiment with directional panel or sector antennas, shield the back of them w/ a sheet of steel a bit bigger than the antenna, and mount it pointing out... Then you could take anything seen by the external facing sensor and either filter it or weight it as "outside"?

Thanks for the suggestions!

Unfortunately, I think some of this is a little beyond what I'm going to be able to easily accomplish here. The directional panel actually might be good though...that I may have to try.

I've been looking at windows products that will give you a good heatmap and they seem to work pretty well for what I need them for. Unfortunately it seems like the commercial versions are what I really need to set up a process to do this. I also like Kismet much better in that it will give you much more information if allowed to listen long just stinks that the heatmapping stuff is not really available anymore.
