Subject:Proximity Detection Expectations
Date:01:46:02 11/05/2017

I'm working on a Raspberry Pi with a Pi-Fi adapter with Kismet to detect the presence of our phones (or not).
I've filtered just our two MAC addresses in the kismet.conf file, and it sorta works.
The problem is that it can take anywhere from 30 to 600 seconds to detect either phone. I'd like to get this reliably under 60 seconds. I turn off Dwell as well, but that didn't seem to help.
As the plan is to use it to enable/disable a motion detector when we are away/home, respectively.
I've been banging my head against this for a couple of days now and not finding any joy.
Are my expectations unrealistic? Or can someone point me in the right direction for getting the detection resolution I'm after?
